    A Lovely Couple of Hours for Anyone Who Enjoys a Drink
    A wonderful distillery in one of Dublin's most interesting areas! Our tour guide, Billie/Billy, was absolutely great at describing the distilling process and flavour profiles of the whiskey types we were tasting. They also gave some nice historical points about the company's heritage and also the building. The cocktails in the bar afterwards were delicious. Thumbs up!

    Our favorite thing to do in Dublin
    The blending experience at Roe & Co was arguably the best thing we did in Dublin. Very informative and entertaining - thanks to Marc, our amazing guide. Making our own old fashioned was a great experience, and the in-house cocktail bar served some of the best cocktails we had in a long time.

    Fabulous Flavour Experience
    A fantastic experience both in history and cocktail making. We were taken through the history of George Roe and Dublin whiskey and how it weaves into the current distilleries ethos and location. Seán was incredibly knowledgeable and a well spirited guide who knew the answers to any and all questions we had as a group, his energy made the tour that much more special.

    Amazing !
    We had an amazing experience! We did the cocktail making class and it was so fun. Our guide was very interactive and asked us questions and involved everyone. He really made the tour. It was amazing to see the actual whiskey being distilled. You get two cocktails and overall this was better than the Jameson and Guinness tours combined. 10/10

    Fun Tour!
    Very Fun tour! We did the Blending Experience. Our tour guide Ronan was very nice and easily explained everything and answered all our questions. It’s a working distillery so you get to go out on a glass walkway over the copper sills and mash tuns. You’re allowed to take any photos. -We then went into Room 106 where the guide explain more about their blend, tastes it and then we got to make an Old Fashioned with our own blend. Then we brought those drinks with us to the Power Bar where they made us a special cocktail to finish the tour. (FYI- I’m not a whiskey drinker but wanted to experience something uniquely Irish. The cocktail at the end was Delicious!) I recommend giving them a try!

    Highly recommend
    Loved it. We had a fantastic blending tour with Mark. He gave a great explanation of the process and then we had a tasting followed by 2 cocktails.”, all delicious! Mark was very friendly, knowledgable and funny! We also arrived half hour early and the lady at the till (sorry we didn’t catch your name) was very helpful and showed us to the bar. Would highly recommend Roe and co.

    Whiskey Blending Workshop recommended
    Nice way to learn more about whiskey making in general and about the history of whiskey in Ireland. The tour was very nice: good guide, good info, good (and generous) tastings. The site was particularly nice to visit and the cocktails were great. Highly recommended! One of my favorite visits in Dublin so far.

    Hats off
    Seán was terrific and hilarious. The experience was one of our favorites for site seeing in Dublin. Quality service and hospitality. And of course, unbelievably smooth cocktails. We love the gift shop and the interactive experience was the perfect way to end the day! We will be back!

I decided to visit the Roe and Co distillery as I had some time to kill in Dublin and I have been a fan of Roe and Co whisky since I started drinking it a few years ago. The tour was excellent. Our tour guide Wayne was brilliant. He was so knowledge, funny and clearly had a passion for whisky. I did the bending experience and I would highly recommend this to any fan of Irish whisky.

While in Dublin, we went on several distillery tours. All were quite different in style, but the Roe tour was definitely the most fun. My husband and I took the Flavours Experience. Tour-takers go into the "lab" and actually work on making their own, individualized cocktails guided by whether their preference is for sweet, sour, etc. The participation aspect of the Roe tour was really a highlight. (Perhaps made more lively by including a group of women in Dublin for a concert later that evening.) Afterwards, your ticket entitled you to another drink - this time professionally made. Our guide, Shane, the bartenders and everyone at the front desk was very relaxed and friendly - this was not the case at other distilleries or breweries. The Roe staff also gave us a few tips for dining in the area and further around Dublin. Highly recommended!

Excellent experience. This distilling group is bringing both knowledge, art and flair to the demonstration and history of Irish Whiskey. As someone who was in the liquor business - I had some knowledge of whiskey production, but felt like an amateur in the midst of our guide whose knowledge was both vast and wide. For those who are new and experienced in drinking whiskey - great tour with a great product.

Did the tour on Father's Day. Sean was a super host, very knowledgeable and personable. He was able to bring the group together, so much so that by the end of the tour a group of strangers were now friends. His knowledge of the history of the distillery was second to none. The cocktail making session is not to be missed and is great fun. I would highly recommend the tour to any visitors to Dublin.

This is a great tour. The distillery is still new and quite small, but you get a nice tour of the facilities and an explanation of the history. It’s owned by Guinness but still has a small starter kind of feel, at least for now. The highlight of the tour is after learning about the distillation process you get to do a whiskey tasting and make your own cocktail. It’s fun and educational. Finally, you get a second cocktail in the on-site bar. Our guide Killian was excellent. Skip the Guinness “tour” which isn’t really a tour but more of a marketing ploy to get you to buy Guinness merchandise, and do this instead. It was fun and the whiskey is decent. Also, even though this appears to be the only place in Dublin that sells sunglasses (because let’s say you accidentally dropped them on the floor at the airport and they broke), they are much too expensive, which is really the only negative thing about this experience.

The tour we took was the blending tour. Our guide through the experience was Sean and he was absolutely fantastic. His presentation was not the memorized script that so many guides unconsciously zip through. It was well paced and he ensured our questions were answered. We took tours of almost every distillery in Dublin, but this hands on experience was without a doubt the best. The staff we met was young, energetic and proud to be part of this organization.

As the famous line says, " this ain't my first time at the rodeo" I've been on at least 10 distillery tours, they have ranged from interesting to comical. Roe & Co is the absolute winner by a country mile. Luke gave us an entertaining tour which explained why we don't know the name, the history of the family, the brand its journey and he really personalised the product for me. There was enough detail about the process but without getting too detailed and again Luke was able to explain what makes this whisky individual.
The cocktail making session is what's makes this tour so stand out from all the others. Not just a cocktail but an education and a revelation.
We ended our tour in the bar sampling new cocktails based on what we had learnt. Be warned, this ended up a little heavy on the wallet but well worth it . From the building itself to the design of the interior features, this place has considered every aspect of its presentation. This includes a lovely gift shop which was reasonably priced and well presented.
The whole team from the lovely gentleman on the gate, to Briannon in the shop, Shane in the bar and of Luke ( also the lovely Irish polish lady sorry I think I was on my third cocktail by then)

We were lucky to have the first tour of the day on a Sunday, so that meant we were the only people in Julia's tour group, so we had her undivided attention for 45 minutes. The mixing experience sets this tour apart from the Teeling tour we did the day before. Julia made us feel like craft cocktail bartenders during the mixing experience! She made me realize that I actually enjoy whiskey when mixed properly! The branding of Roe & Co and the design of the distillery, bar and gift shop are A-1. We liked it so much we'll likely pop into the Power House bar again for drinks.

Highly recommend, and ask for Julia!

We look forward to welcoming you back on your return visit to the Power House Bar. Until then, thanks once more Kevin

Just had to say had a wonderful visit here. My daughter and I walked in off the street and luckily managed to get the last 2 places on the tour that was starting in 5 minutes. Bev (not going to try & spell your name properly) was the perfect guide. She was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and friendly. I learned so many things about Roe & Co, it’s history and manufacturing that I took great delight in reeling off to my husband when we got home that he wished he’d been with us. There was a well explained tasting session, a fantastic cocktail mixing class and it all ended with a drink in the bar. So much thought and detail had been put into the building ( even the toilets) the tour and the shop. It was very very impressive. My only disappointment being that as we had only traveled with hand luggage we couldn’t buy much from the shop and there were lots of things I’d have loved to have bought. I was hoping to get the glassware and apron online but they aren’t available which is such a shame because they would make excellent presents. Hope you can get an online shop running very soon.

Absolutely loved our tour. Very informative, to the point and not dragged out (some tours assume everyone wants to know the miniscule details of distilling).
Mark was a brilliant guide, kept it interesting and entertaining!
The cocktails were a great addition, which isn't offered on most of the other tours in "the ould triangle".
