    Worth adding to your itinerary!
    The distillery tour is great! Our tour was well-paced and lasted just around an hour. Our guide Brian was knowledgable and engaging, talking through the history, distilling, and serving process. You spend about 15 minutes in each of the 4 rooms of the tour which gives you enough time to soak in each step of the process (and take pictures!). The tour ends with a sample of their small batch whiskey and a double cocktail. We were given a delicious seasonal fruity drink that both my sister (who doesn't like whiskey) and I loved and want to recreate at home. To get to the tour, we had walked from the Temple Bar area (a 20-min quiet, pretty walk passed St. Patrick's Cathedral) and then after the tour, we walked another 15 minutes to Guinness. This facility may seem a little out of your way if you have limited in central Dublin, but it's worth the trip!
    Thanks Laura for such great feedback on your tour with brian. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed the cocktail and hopefully you get to create at home and it taste as good as it does here. Thanks Madeleine Customer Experience Manager

    Do this tour if you enjoy whiskey
    Such a great time at this tour, we learned a lot about the whiskey making process and then had a nice tasting where our guide, Marc, helped explain the different whiskeys and what makes them each unique. It's a small enough place that you pretty easily get a good sense of the process and they are making some outstanding whiskeys. Highly recommend if you are at all interested in whiskey!
    Thank you for the 5 star review and high recommendation. Delighted to hear you enjoyed your experience on Marc's tour and learned alot about the whiskey making process and that you enjoyed the whiskey. We look forward to welcoming you to the distillery again in the future. All the best, Louise

    Fun Distillery experience summarizing the revival and return of one of Dublin’s oldest distilleries
    Very informative and and fun distillery experience in a more intimate setting than other larger distilleries. The story of the revival and return of one of Dublin’s original distilleries is a classic underdog story that immerses yourself into the story of Teeling. I had not heard of Teeling prior to this experience, but I will definitely be recommending this whiskey moving forward to anyone interested in Irish Whiskey.
    Thank you for the 5 star review Logan. Delighted to hear you enjoyed your experience and found the tour fun and informative. We appreciate the recommendation and look forward to welcoming you back to the distillery in the future. All the best, Louise

    Excellent Distillery Tour!
    Informative, interesting, and fun! Out of all the alcohol related tours we embarked on in Dublin, this was by far the most authentic. Unlike many other attractions, this is a working distillery. Being able to see the whiskey distillation process was a great treat to a novice whiskey fan as myself. Marc was great! He’s charismatic, and intelligent, and well versed in the art and science behind the whiskey process. I would recommend this experience to any and all of my friends who might visit Dublin.
    Fantastic to hear you had a great time here with us and especially Marc. Always great to hear visitors find the tour interesting, fun and informative. Also thanks for the recommendation :) MAdeleine Customer Experience Manager

    If you like whiskey and want to see a running distillery stop here!
    Great whiskey tour! Teeling is an active distillery so you get to see how the production actually occurs which is interesting. You also learn a lot about the history of the whiskey industry in Ireland. Tour includes a tasting and free cocktail which was delightful. Our guide was Felix who was wonderful. Very friendly and knowledgeable about the business. Also easily able to answer questions. Definitely would recommend making this a part of your time in Dublin!
    Great to hear that Felix did such a great job on the tour and that you recommend coming for a visit. Madeleine Customer Experience Manager

    Excellent tour and whiskey tasting. Marc was a brilliant tour guide. I’ve been to a few others and you can struggle to hear at times, but Marc had it down to a fine art and made sure it was easy to follow. Great decor & artwork too, highly recommend.

    Fun and informative whisky tour
    I had a lovely tour with Brian. I learned quite a bit and got to try some fantastic whiskies. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and answered all of my questions. I would highly recommend the tour, it’s a great up-close look at how the whisky is made.
    Thank you for the 5 star review Aklame, delighted to hear you enjoyed your experience on Brian's tour and learned about the whiskey making process. We appreciate the high recommendation and look forward to welcoming you back to the distillery in the future. All the best, Louise

    Excellent experience
    I am really not a fan of tours etc but duly came along with my hubby and my son and his family. From the moment I walked through the door I felt this lovely friendly atmosphere. Then came our guide, well to say he was enthusiastic was an understatement.. and his manner was very friendly, warm and charming and very knowledgeable. You knew you were in for a treat. He is a real asset to the team. A few folk could learn from him. I know it’s his job but I think he gives the tour his all , given that he must have to do the same thing many times a day . He had a lovely friendly nature that made us all feel relaxed and as we had a babe in a pushchair we felt welcome … not like other tours where we have been to where children not too welcome meaning one of us would have to sit outside and watch the baby. So pleased that the Teelings ambition and hard work has come good for them. The tour was excellent and the cocktail at the end was delicious.. as I’m not a whiskey drinker but that was just so tasty . Thank you Marc for a really good tour … makes it all a very good value for money tour.
    Thank you for taking the time to share your experience and for the 5 star review. Delighted to hear you enjoyed Marc's tour and found our distillery to have a welcoming atmosphere. I'll be sure to pass on all your lovely comments to Marc. Also glad you enjoyed the cocktail, they really are delicious and I hope we have now converted you to a whiskey drinker!! We look forward to welcoming you back to the distillery again in the future. All the best, Louise

    Teelings Taster Tour
    The experience at the distillery was great. Gavin was brilliant; very friendly, knowledgeable and always happy to answer questions and inviting us to engage during the tasting portion. The length of the tour is pleasantly short, hitting the main elements of the distilling process and good value for the drinks you receive at the end. Would recommend.
    Thanks Jack for the recommendation to come for a visit to us. Great to hear Gavin did so well and that you thought it was not too long Madeleine Customer Experience Manager

    Whiskey Factory Tour Fun
    Tour begins in a spacious gallery full of Teeling’s historical details. In this room a robust detailed talk by tour guide Felix created context and enthusiasm for the manufacturing process floor upstairs. Felix was informative and welcomed any question or comment. Plenty of time afforded to view the vats and barrels. The tasing snug was a treat. 4 families were on our tour. We all got to know each other as Felix guided our tastings. Yum! We spent a little over two hours. Most highly recommended.
    What a brilliant review on your time here with us and Felix in particular. So happy to hear you had sucha good time. Hope to see you again Madeleine Customer Experience Manager

Had a superb tour of a really stunning distillery - brilliantly curated by James. Plethora of fascinating fasts woven into the very visible distilling process. You are right in the 82 proof air of the production facility with a deep engaging explanations of field to bottle to palate experience of Irish - Dublin local distillation and maturation. Highly recommended.

Visited with hubby and friends after walking from the centre on a cold windy morning. Building is lovely and distinctive. Staff all friendly and approachable. The tour was closed on the day we visited ( we did know) so we had the tasting session- 12euros for 3 whiskeys after walking through the visitor experience. Gavin was our taste guide and was really informative and knowledgable. We tried the small batch, the single grain and the single malt. Two of us weren't really whiskey drinkers but really enjoyed trying and my hubby enjoyed finishing what i didn't. Also tried poteen and did a bit of wall graffiti ( visit and you will find out). Staff couldn't do enough for us and we were really impressed. There is a cafe and a gift shop on site.

I hadn't tried any whiskey by my last day in Ireland, so I decided to stop in at Teeling Distillery for a tour. The small museum exhibit before the tour was interesting and informative. Once you get into the distillery on the tour, it is pretty much impossible to hear the tour guide because of the noise. It would be great to have some type of amplification for the guides so guests could hear. After the distillery, it's into the tasting room. Each person/couple had their own table for the tasting, which was all set up depending on which tour you purchased. Great directions for sampling our whiskey and really delicious whiskey cocktail! I wanted to spend some time sipping mine, while everyone else just bolted their drinks and left, but I didn't feel rushed at all. I will definitely look for this in the U.S.

We did the tour and tasting and was nice to learn about Irish whisky especially from a young distillery company. Our tour guide Fionn was great. Explained thing very well. The tasting was really nice. They let us sample whisky straight and a mixed version of it. Both very delicious.

Add this to tour pilgrimage of Irish Whiskey Distilleries, historical, charming and with a very high quality production facility. It was missing the distinct storehouse intrinsic with other distilleries, and the distinct scent of the Angel's Share which makes sense, being in the centre of a city and all, but that's a tiny grouse in an otherwise must do tour for any local history or whiskey afficionado.

Enjoy, get the Irish Coffee, I don't know what they do different but I can't stop thinking about it.

Teeling has exceeded my expectations! We checked out Jameson 2 days prior and thought it was good but Teeling truly knocks it out of the ball park!

Amazing staff, Julia was our guide and she was very knowledgeable, helpful, and confident! We loved everything about this distillery.

The moment you walk in you immediately have a pleasant light aroma of the process of their whiskey and in your tour, you actually walk through the making of their whiskey!

At our tasting we had the seasonal cocktail which was winter spiced tea and it was so smooth and so soft that you will crave for another one! We also did the upgrade and added the “hot pot” which is an infused hot beverage (see pics!)

At the bar, we met Darren and he answered our questions confidently and was super friendly and easy to talk to. We are so happy we did this tour as we have not really heard a lot about Teeling.

This is my very first review and I typically do not make the time to post a review but this experience I had to share. If you ever make your way to Dublin, make this your very first choice to experience!

This is less commercial than say the Guinness factory, but it is the real deal for those who want to see an actual working distillery.

When we went they were draining out the wort from the tanks and it smelled awful, but harden up: it’s what the place will smell like some days.

I wouldn’t bring anyone here who wasn’t legitimately interested in seeing how whiskey is made. But for those who are, you’ll find the tour cost includes a tasting and a (very good if potent) cocktail that itself would go for the tour price.

Allow 30-40 mins for the tour, and time to sober up if you get a little bit too enthusiastic about whiskey tasting after you’ve skipped lunch. >_>

We both really enjoyed the tour. Stephen was great and had a lot of knowledge of the history of distilling whiskey in Dublin, from the golden triangle to the present day. This site started in 2012 and is run by two brothers. It's a great space to visit, lots of wall art create a trendy urban vibe. We went for the Trilogy tasting but wish we'd tried the more expensive option as we enjoyed everything that we tasted - the single grain was our favorite. Wish we'd had more time to sample more whiskey and maybe a cocktail at the onsite bar. Much preferred this tour compared to Jameson as it is a working distillery. Recommended.

A great little distillery and a great experience. It was great to see the basics in operation all the way to tasting the final product. First time, despite visiting many distilleries, that I saw the early result of grain mixed with water moving on to a yeast mix, or wash, and to see the clear stuff bubbling in from the potstill. The tasting was very informative and enjoyable, hosted by Adam, and the whiskys were fantastic superseded only by the cocktails that followed in the super atmospheric bar. Thanks also to Gavin and Christine who all made the tour and experience so enjoyable. If you find yourself in the Liberties, get in here, and if you don’t ask a local cabbie to take your there. Thanks guys for a wonderful experience, made our day.

Opened quite recently. It is one of many destilleries that used to be located in this part of the city. Fortunately there are plans to re-open more of them shortly. Teeling did a good job. Tours are interesting, not too long, not too short. Hosts are funny and can tell many interesting stories about this destillery, but also history of this Dublin area. Back in XVIII/XIX century about 80% of global whiskey production was located in here - Golden Triangle (radius of only about 2 km), where 37 destilleries were located. There are different ours options available, of course including whiskeys degustation. Nice gift shop and bar also available.
