The Irish Whiskey Museum in Dublin is thought to be the world’s first independent museum of its kind

Developed by travel company Extreme Ireland, the Irish Whiskey Museum on Failte Irelan’s Dubline expects to receive 80,000 visitors in its first year, as interest from international tourists in Irish whiskey develops.

The museum features a series of exhibitions detailing the history of whiskey distilling in Ireland through the use of interactive technology and actors. Visitors aged over 18 years will also have the opportunity to taste samples of Irish whiskey, while more extensive tastings are available with VIP packages.

Keith McDonnell, founder of the Irish Whiskey Museum, said: “Irish Whiskey acts as an ambassador for Ireland all over the world. The Irish Whiskey Museum gives those who appreciate our whiskey the chance to discover a litany of legends and tales that will entrance and inform.”

The museum, located on Grafton Street in Dublin 2, is open seven days a week, 364 days a year (excluding Christmas Day).
