    We did the secret whiskey tasting and it did not disappoint! There were four different whiskeys available during the tasting and there was information included about how they were made and how to properly taste them! Erica was informative and a great guide!

    We only had one day in Dublin and saw the Irish Whiskey Museum right across the street from the Trinity College entrance where we saw the Book of Kelly. We took the tour not really knowing what to expect. Out tour was lead by Ellen a masterful story teller in the Celt tradition. The tour was the story of Whiskey, Ireland and the people who made Irish Whiskey famous and why Whiskey is important to the Irish and the world. At the end of the tour there is a tasting of three or four whiskeys. Don't expect Bushmills or Jameson but well known brands the Irish might have in a shorty (take the tour and you'll learn what that means). I recommend this to all adults.

    I found this very informative and educational. I felt that I came out knowing a lot more than when I went in. You will find it particularly interesting if you have an Irish heritage, but certainly not necessary to enjoy.

    Highly recommend this guided tour around Kilmainham Gaol, our tour guide Adam was amazing and very funny. We learned so much from him and enjoyed every minute. He is a credit to the place.

    My friend and I only had 1 day in Dublin. We wanted to do something special, but there were so many options it was hard to choose. Eventually we decided to book a tour at the Teeling Whiskey Distillery, and I’m glad we did! What a wonderful and interesting experience!
    Thank you, Jamie, for giving us a beautiful memory of Dublin.

    I have a new found appreciation for guiness after this visit even though it's not to my taste. Our favourite part was the taste experience with the little guiness glass and I liked the fish on the bicycle. We went for a self guided option however might be nice to go for one with a guide

    Well worth the visit, booked it online which was simple. Downloaded the trinity app and listened to the audio tour as we went along.

    Went to check out this quirky place while exploring Temple Bar in Dublin. They have everything from Phil Lynott’s report card to a pair of Michael Jackson’s pj’s. Our guide, Alan, was funny, very knowledgeable and made everyone feel like his new best friend. Thanks for introducing me to so much more Irish Rock N Roll than the Cranberries and U2 ( not that there’s anything wrong with those guys! )

    The whole experience was amazing, from the warm welcome in reception, the the impressive restoration and wonderful delivery throughout the tour by our guide, Phelem Drew.This is a wonderful museum which should be supported to make sure it can be well maintained.

    Friend and I were told by a random guy on a bike to check this out today, so we did. What a wonderful little museum - if you like Arabic and Middle Eastern art. Beautiful, quiet, gorgeous art beautifully displayed. And the courtyard outside is just wonderful.

    This place is mind-blowing! So many centuries of history, so beautifully preserved! The crypt is very Game of Thrones, and the rest of it very Pillars of the Earth! It's crazy to me that I can stand in a building that was laid out almost 1,000 years ago. The audio tour is completely worth it - I felt so smart when it was over! Honestly I wasn't going to go to it, but someone recommended it so strongly I gave it a shot and I am SO glad I did. Please go - you're going to love it!

    My parents were visiting from Australia and we decided to do the tour as we’re all big sports fans. The tour was very interesting as we didn’t know much about GAA sports or Croke Park, and we walked away near experts! But it was our lovely guide Annette that made the day brilliant! She was extremely welcoming and warm, was more than happy to answer any questions anyone had, and was very knowledgeable and informing. She is a lovely lady and if you’re lucky enough to get her as your guide you won’t be disappointed!

    The GAA museum is also fascinating and I would highly recommend visiting after the tour. There’s a huge amount to see including exhibits from Bloody Sunday.

    All in all it is a must see when visiting Dublin.

    We had a great time, the Cathedral is really beautiful with a lot of interesting things to see. The staff was also really friendly and welcoming, you really do get a feeling that everyone is welcome. The park around the Cathedral is also really pretty.
