Derek’s whiskey tasting was a highlight of our trip to Dublin. He was flexible with scheduling and selected whiskey at multiple price points, including some very accessible, and affordable options (a rarity at some tastings). His interactive and conversational style ensured all of our questions were answered. His passion for his work is evident, and he’s only matched by his enthusiasm. Highly recommend.


This is a really unique tasting experience. It’s small group so you can ask lots of questions, and Derek is really knowledgeable. You also get to taste some really different whiskeys and the experience is super fun! Can’t recommend it enough.

Won’t find a better Whiskey Tasting Experience.
Had a wonderful night in M.P. Walsh, where Derek ran through some cracking irish whiskeys, gained a great insight into some old reliable and new emerging irish whiskies. Derek’s knowledge was excellent, you would find it hard to beat Experience Irish Whiskey when it comes to having a fun night tasting the best Ireland has to offer in terms of whiskey.

Highly Recommended!!
Derek is an amazing host with a crazy amount of knowledge and great delivery. He took us on a journey through Irish Whiskey with a particular emphasis on new emerging exciting Irish whiskey. He has a true passion for Irish Whiskey and the people behind the bottles which comes across throughout.
A really great experience with a genuinely lovely guy.

Whether you’re a whiskey lover or not, the Irish whiskey experience is a great activity to do in Dublin alone or with a group of friends. The host, Derek, was very friendly and welcoming, making the whole experience even better. You can learn a lot about whiskey history and try whiskey from different Irish brands.

Derek looked after my group when we visited Dublin just a few weeks ago in January. We were honestly blown away by his Irish Whiskey knowledge, enthusiasm, attention to detail and his professional but relaxed manner. We booked a tasting experience with him based on a solid recommendation from a friend and I can honestly say that it was even more enjoyable (and tasty) than expected. When I’m back in Dublin with another group, we would love to see Derek again. 100% would recommend Experience Irish Whiskey 🥃 Sláinte 🥃
