FULL IRELAND'S HIDDEN HEARTLANDS WHISKEY TRAIL PROGRAMME

9:30AM DEPARTURE FROM DUBLIN CITY

Pick up at your hotel in Dublin City. Your executive transport will be there ready for boarding and we head out of the city for the west. Your Whiskey Specialist  Host will entertain you as you sit back and enjoy the Irish countryside. Don’t get too comfortable! Our first stop is only a quick hour down the road. First stop is Kilbeggan Distillery. We take the tour here at Kilbeggan which includes a master class in the tasting of three Irish whiskeys from the Kilbeggan Distillery Range.

ATHLONE AND IRELAND'S OLDEST PUB

Next, we visit one of Ireland’s most authentic towns, Athlone. Enjoy some free time here/grab some lunch. When we regroup, your host will take you for a visit to Sean’s Bar – Ireland’s oldest pub. In fact, Sean’s Bar is not only the oldest bar in Ireland, but also the oldest in Europe. And right now, it is the oldest pub in the world! Timmy or Declan, who both run the bar, will show you a letter from the Guinness Book of Records as proof! They also have their very own whiskey brands which are really, really good. And you’ll enjoy a tasting of Sean’s Specially Blended & Single Malt Irish Whiskeys during our visit to the pub.

TULLAMORE DISTILLERY

Another quick transfer by road will have us at the home of Tullamore D.E.W., one of the biggest Irish whiskeys in the world. After a delicious Irish coffee on arrival, we take a tour of the Tullamore plant, a very impressive set up. You will see the still, the mashers, the fermenters and the visit to the warehouse is a real highlight. You will have the chance to sample a broad range of Tullamore D.E.W. whiskeys today, including some rare single pot still whiskey straight from the cask. After time for shopping, we hit the road for Dublin and have you back at your hotel for 6:30pm. 

Excellent tour

What a splendid way to spend a day. Sit and relax in a car while looking at the fantastic scenery of Ireland with a friendly and perfect guide, John, who knew so much and told us so many interesting things. When arriving at the distilleries John checked us in. Everything was prepared for, we didn’t have to do anything.. more than do the tours and taste whiskey:)
Kilbeggan, the nice little town Athlone where you could have some lunch before visiting Sean’s bar (the oldest bar, at least in Ireland) with whiskey tasting as well and finally Tullamore with a master class.
At first I thought the price was quite high but looking at what we got it was worth every penny!
