“Great time, and not just for whiskey lovers!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2007

A few of us had a private tasting in Glenbeigh October, 2007. It was fantastic. I was a little worried because I had planned it as a surprise for the group, which included long-time whiskey-drinkers and those who only “try” it now and again. The presentation and sampling was perfect for those knowledgeable with whiskey, and those who are not. Heidi leads you through the production stages and all of the different variations which are made, tasting with each step. We had the tasting + chocolate, which really made the flavors of each come alive (think of it as like a wine and cheese tasting - the ladies loved it). It was also obvious that Heidi had worked at one of the major distillers in Ireland, and she shared many funny tidbits and opinions about the different types and brands we can find back here in the USA. It was a great experience, and even those who were not regular whiskey drinkers found it one of the highlights of the great 2-week trip. We even sampled an Irish Coffee recipe we’ll never forget. Highly recommended! Greg C. Reno, Nevada

“master irish whiskey tasting event wtih heidi donelon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2007

While staying at a B&B in county Killarney we had a private masters irish whiskey tasting evening with Heidi Donelon. Heidi is an expert on the history and the different types of irish whiskey and how they are diffferent from scottish whiskey. She has a lovely personality and her passion for this subject made the evening come alive - even for a non-drinker such as myself. We also had the opportunity to taste some very rare irish whiskeys that are no longer produced or hard to find in ireland.

“Best Irish Whiskey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2007

We had an evening Whiskey tasting with serious competition afterwards. Heidi told us a lot about whiskey but also about the habits and the drinks. She did a great job; a lot of fun and humor. The whiskeys tasted excellent, we did the course with the older whiskeys. We also did a competition which was fun although the differences aren't that easy to adress. It was a fantastic event, all 9 people were very enthousiastic; also the day after.
Thank you Heidi!

“Great, instructive fun for corporate Events!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2007

I booked the Irish Whiskey Event for a corporate event. We planned only about 30 people would attend, and then the whole party was interested, we doubled the numbers! Thankfully, as Heidi is very professional and entertaining, this wasn't a problem. Everybody loved to discover the subtleties of whiskeys, their fabrication process, and of course taste one (or even several) samples of the different whiskeys on display. Heidi is independant, so she can offer a very wide range of whiskeys, and will help you find your new favourite! Book Heidi without hesitation for a great evening!

“The Irish Whiskey Event”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2004

My group too returned with wonderful memories of the Irish Whiskey Event In Killarney. Had found a great review of this evening on Tripadvisor, but no internet link ! So after some digging on the net, found the link - ... - as we wanted to book it. No regrets - it was a wonderful evening spent enjoying Irish Whiskeys, stories and toasts. This should definitely be included in your list of Killarney attractions. Pete
