Sip and Stroll Historic Walk Dublin Itinerary
Our Whiskey walk begins at Pearse Lyons Distillery, James Street
We will meet at the iconic Pearse Lyons distillery, Don't worry you won't miss the meeting point as the Church steeple marking the distillery grounds is a clear indicator! Our stroll will then lead us to St. Patricks Tower across from the famous Guinness Brewery at St James's Gate and along by the new Roe & Co. Distillery where the iconic George Roe brand has been breathed fresh life! George Roe was a true giant in Irish whiskey, taking up 18 acres of space for distilling his whiskey in the area! Hear from your guide the fascinating story around the last standing structure of the old distillery site.
Moving through the streets of the Liberties we will experience the new wave of culture in the area where old meets new and stop for a visit at a very famous address in Irish distilling history, Johns Lane which once housed the very famous Powers whiskey operation. Now home to the National College of Art and Design. A truly stunning façade where pride was to the fore with everything the famous Powers family touched. A rich steeped story told on our stop off here.
Visit A True Local Liberties Pub
We take in the trading and market history of the Liberties with a stroll through Francis Street for our first pub stop, The Liberty Belle.. One of the last remaining true local bars of the Dublin 8 area. Here you will sample your first whiskey of the day.
The great distillery workers of Dublin in the 1800's chose their watering holes very well and our next stop is a true step back in time. John Fallons or as its known the Capstan bar. One famed whiskey brand dominates the décor very subtly and its here we will have another tipple of whiskey along with their signature dish, one made famous by the Dublin working class.. The ham and cheese toastie. The very best one in the city!
Whiskey Tasting in a Victorian Era Pub
From here we stroll through the beautiful St. Patricks park where the centre piece is the Cathedral. It seems not many things in this city escaped a connection with alcohol and St Patrick's cathedral is no different A quick stop to admire its beauty and stature and then to the last stop. The Swan Bar.
Licensed since 1661, this is one of the remaining 16 Victorian era pubs of Dublin where the beauty of its interior is something to behold. The chances are the guy getting your Guinness ready is the owner, this is a true local haunt where it really feels like you're a regular. The Guinness is truly special and enjoyed best in "The Snug". The Snug in has been a central part of Irish pub culture for a very long time, sip your Guinness, learn its history and hear about the wonderful colourful history of this this iconic pub.
Dublin Whiskey Walk
What's The Buzz About Our Whiskey Walk
If you want to explore Dublin and have a interest in Whisky and Guiness look no further! I booked the „historic Dublin whiskey walk“ experience for me and 7 friends. The tour was excellent, we could not have wished for anything better. Derek is not only exceptionally knowledgeable about whiskey, he also knows a lot about the history of the city and the country. The entire communication was very professional and he also gave us a lot of advice on what not to miss in our time in Dublin! We had the best afternoon!! Would definitely recommend and do again!
This man is a walking whiskey-dictonary! Nice guide, cool bars, good time with my friends! Better take some notes, because you will get a truckload of information 🙂
Patrick was a fantastic and knowledgeable guide as first we strolled through the Liberties, learning more about Pearse Lyons, Roe & Coe and Powers, and then we sipped, stopping at some top notch pubs. Derek, who had organized it, even came by to our last stop at The Swan. I highly recommend this tour for anyone interested in upping your knowledge of Irish Whiskey and also wanting some good Cráic - Slaínte!
This was a fantastic experience. Derek is a brilliant guide and we had the best time with him. He takes you off the beaten path to some incredible old pubs, you taste some delicious whiskeys and his knowledge, stories and anecdotes are just incredible. I cannot recommend this enough and when we are back we will try some of the other tours on offer. Such an amazing treat!
Patrick Fox was a great guide and so informative! He was very knowledgeable on the whiskey we had and my husband liked his overall personality. I liked he didn’t mind we were a bit behind because of traffic. Would do this again next visit to Dublin! Highly recommend
The Irish Whiskey Experience was mindblowing with Derek! We had a great time walking around The Liberties and understanding the history of the Distilleries in that area. Derek took us back in time and made us taste different varieties of whiskey at amazing traditional Irish pubs and bars. We also had delicious toasties at the Capstan Bar and we all were stunned with how much Dublin has to offer in respect of Whiskey and Distilleries. We finished off the tour by having whiskey and pints at the Swan Bar and it was an awesome experience with Derek. He was a great and friendly host and made sure our Sunday was well spent.
