Andrew was our guide and he was great! The tour was informative and fun. Andrew did a great job of "reading his audience" and letting us ask questions. He really seemed interested in tailoring the tour to our interests. I recommend this tour to anyone looking for a fun and relaxed tour.

A great whiskey tour that I enjoyed much more than the previous distillery tours I've done. Andrew is very knowledgeable about whiskey (obviously) but also about Dublin and Ireland and does a great job weaving the knowledge together. As a group we ranged from people who drink a lot of whiskey to those who never do, but he was great about making the whiskey (and the tour) enjoyable for all!

We arranged for a private tour (just four of us). It was incredibly informative on all levels (beyond just whiskey). Niall was great! He even coached us on proper whiskey drinking, which made even the non-whiskey drinkers in the group enjoy their drinks.

Thank you for your nice review. Niall is the newest member of our team and is a great whiskey guide. We are delighted he converted some of your group over to the pleasure of premium Irish whiskey. We only serve the best whiskey in the best bars, so you don't experience burning throats or watering eyes while hearing scripted bland marketing speak. We are the real Dublin whiskey experience. Thanks Andrew

We had a wonderful time with Rachel on the Whiskey Tasting Tour....and I don't even like Whiskey :)
But Rachel made the experience very educational, with lots of Irish history included. It was a very fun couple excursion. I even found some whiskeys that I enjoyed!

We had a very nice and pleasant whiskey tasting. The ambience of the whiskey bar was very pleasant and immediately provided a good mood/atmosphere. Andrew was able to tell us a lot about Irish Whiskey and the ones he selected all had their good and special taste.
It was the perfect start for a Saturday evening in Dublin.

Long story short:
Absolutely recommendable for all friends of whisky and perfect for all beginners.

I am so glad to have taken this tour. Andrew was a friendly and knowledgeable tour guide, and took us to two bars after the initial tasting of a couple of whiskeys at the Dingle Whiskey Bar. It is obvious that they have good relations with the pubs and the Irish whiskey community. If you are interested in whiskey, or just Irish culture, and want a fun afternoon or evening activity, I highly recommend this tour.

The whiskey tasting tour in Dublin was one of the highlights of my visit. Thanks to my tour guide Justine, I had a great time. She was extremely knowledgeable on all topics of whiskey and was fun and easy to talk to. Also going to 3 different pubs kept it a unique and fresh experience. I highly recommend doing the tour if you like whiskey (even if you don't, you might find out that you do.)

Hi, thanks for your nice review. We are happy our whiskey experience with Justine was a highlight of your trip to our city. We always like to convert some non-whiskey drinkers on our whiskey experiences. It's easy as Irish whiskey is just so nice. Thanks Andrew
