We are from the Dallas area and decided on a 1-day road trip to see some sights nearby. I grew up drinking Dr. Pepper, so this little stop has been on my to do list. We opted for the pay tour ($18 for 2 adults/2 kids) that took us through the small bottling plant, and two museums that housed historical... More

Pretty fun to see the bottling machinery and learn about how a small bottling company works. Knowledgable staff and tour guide. The kids had a great time creating and bottling their own sodas. Very impressed that the tour guide agreed to run one last tour a little late for the family who had just pulled into town from out of... More

I have lived here most of my life and the dr. Pepper plant was the highlight of all. You can see bottling with pure cane sugar in process. But now the dr. Pepper is gone, thanks to snapple. Dublin has bounced back and us producing new flavors of soft drinks. You can take a tour of the bottling plant and... More

Everyone misses the Dublin Dr. Pepper that was bottled here until recently, but that is not the point of this review. Visitors today can still tour the bottling plant with plenty of Dr Pepper memorabilia. Occasionally, you can see the bottles actually being filled. After the very brief tour, you can relax in their soda shop which serves a variety... More

We had a great time touring the Bottling Works. We had a great guide and we got to taste several of the different sodas. It was worth the money and worth the trip from Fort Worth. We had an enjoyable day in Dublin.

I have stopped here numerous times during the years, and am saddened to see the old Dr Pepper bottling plant is no longer in operation. They still have a museum and continue to make other bottled drinks, but the original flavor of Dr Pepper can no longer be purchased here.

We bought a Groupon to go on the tour and get floats. It was a great deal. You tour of the old bottling facility next door to the Soda Shop (they're going to build a new bottling facility at some point and this one is rarely active). While on the tour, you get to sample a few flavors of their... More

After years of driving by the place a friend and I stopped to check it out. Interesting pieces of history and a old school soda fountain. They also have a variety of snacks and other drinks available.

Stopped with the family in Dublin and Docs soda shop (part of the bottling facility). Decided against tour with pricing at $5 adults, $4 children. Instead, spent the money on a variety of flavored sodas @ $1.25 ea only because of the "pure cane sugar" (instead of todays norm of high fructose corn syrup) ingredient. Girls behind counter were very... More
