    The whiskey blending tour was informative and interesting. The guide was humorous and provided an interesting history of the origin of whiskey. However, the actual blending experience was rather disappointing. On entering the room to undertake the whiskey blending, there was too many of us and not enough sets of whiskey. This was eventually sorted, but a number of us had to stand due to there not being enough seats. The guide then went off into another room and appeared to be getting ready for the next group. We were left with our glasses of whiskey and pipettes, with no explanation at to what we should do. It ended with the group tipping their sample whiskeys into the little bottle provided, as no one was there to offer guidance. As we were all left in the room for quite some time, the group proceeded to drink the bottle of whiskey that had been left on the side, which was enjoyable, but not the purpose of the tour. Perhaps it would be better on days not so busy.

    The experience was absolutely amazing! A very committed guide, knowledgeable in the subject and could attract fun laughs! Despite an overbooked session, he managed to make everyone feel included. The tasting included 4 different types of whiskey, a very wide range so you could find something you liked. Very fun to even get to mix your own of your favorites!

    Book with the Irish Whiskey Museum. It’s that straight forward - absolutely excellent! It’s not sponsored so no brand promoted over anything else - no leprechauns or 4 leaf clovers mentioned. What is though , is a decent amount of social history around the grain and the process of distillation. Oh and of course a grand guided tasting session - great choices, very well presented , a lot of fun had- possibly bit more of a challenge if english isn’t your first language. The whiskey museum shop is fantastic - all choices represented . This museum and the EPIC museum give a sense of the actual rather than then blarney...well until the grain starts talking...slainte !
