Amazing team of drivers!! Funny, informative, caring and helpful. I am visually impaired and all the drivers we met in the three days with this company were supportive and understanding, giving me extra time to go upstairs and to come down the stairs so that I could enjoy the fresh air of my home town while my partner enjoyed the views. Outstanding and would highly recommend to anyone travelling with a disability. Thank you especially to Martin and Greg.

Dan was an amazing guide. He was engaging, energetic, and entertaining. The tour itself was very educational. I learned a lot and enjoyed doing it. I wasn’t excited about the tasting because I am not usually a whiskey drinker, but they may have converted me. The four we tasted were all uniquely delightful to sip. And the blending part was fun! I highly recommend this tour and museum to anyone visiting Dublin.

Informative, interesting and fun. Noel was a terrific presenter. Glad we went.

Our guide was spectacular! Super fun and interesting history of whiskey
