Irish Whiskey Museum in Dublin City

Irish Whiskey Museum – Músaem Éisc Uisce na hÉireann

Did you know the word ‘whiskey’ comes from the Irish uisce beatha, means water of life?

The Irish whiskey was once the most popular spirit in the world until the late 19th century onwards where the period of decline heavily damaged the industry.

Take a journey back through time at the Irish Whiskey Museum (Irish: Músaem Éisc Uisce na hÉireann). Learn the origins of Irish whiskey, its rise to glory and its dramatic fall as well to discover the best old and new Irish whiskey brands. 

They offer a series of guided tours, as well as private and event tours.

Enjoy the wonderful stories told by our entertaining guides as they bring you through the ages of Irish whiskey.  At the end of the tour, you will become a true master of whiskey tasting over a little tipple of Irish whiskey.

From Dublin Citi Hotel can get to the Whiskey Museum in around 3 minutes walk!
