    We only had one day in Dublin and saw the Irish Whiskey Museum right across the street from the Trinity College entrance where we saw the Book of Kelly. We took the tour not really knowing what to expect. Out tour was lead by Ellen a masterful story teller in the Celt tradition. The tour was the story of Whiskey, Ireland and the people who made Irish Whiskey famous and why Whiskey is important to the Irish and the world. At the end of the tour there is a tasting of three or four whiskeys. Don't expect Bushmills or Jameson but well known brands the Irish might have in a shorty (take the tour and you'll learn what that means). I recommend this to all adults.

    I found this very informative and educational. I felt that I came out knowing a lot more than when I went in. You will find it particularly interesting if you have an Irish heritage, but certainly not necessary to enjoy.

    Not like a usual museum, it highlights the aspects of history that are usually overseen by other museum, deals mostly with pop culture and little people, thanks to a lovely blonde guide who was very entertaining

    We paid extra for the Connoisseur Class, which I HIGHLY recommend! The storehouse tour is included and is informative and fun, but it's huge and crowded and feels a bit impersonal. You also get your free pint at the Gravity Bar up top, which is beautiful but, again, pretty crowded. The Connoisseur Class is limited to about 12 people at a time, and they take you up to a private bar on the 4th floor, where you spend an hour with your personal host tasting varieties of Guinness and learning about the history of the beer, Dublin, and anything else you want to ask. We also learned how to pull a proper pint of Guinness ourselves! Our host was Kevin, and he was a delight! So fun, knowledgeable, and friendly. He quickly made us all feel right at home and made our class one of the highlights of our Ireland trip. We loved the intimate, personal feel of that experience and would highly recommend splashing out the extra cash to do it.

    Friend and I were told by a random guy on a bike to check this out today, so we did. What a wonderful little museum - if you like Arabic and Middle Eastern art. Beautiful, quiet, gorgeous art beautifully displayed. And the courtyard outside is just wonderful.

    Would definitely recommend the stadium tour. Our tour guide, Annette, was extremely knowledgeable and friendly and she really made it an enjoyable visit. It was fun and informative and the passion for the Gaelic games is clear to see. We didn’t know anything about Gaelic football or hurling beforehand and really found it fascinating. A must visit when in Dublin.

    The tour of the Jeanie Johnston is a highlight of our stay in Dublin. This authentic replica of the ship that carried passengers to the new world during the Irish Famine was wonderfully immersive and gave a wonderful understanding of the hardships endured by those hoping for a new, better life. Our guide was wonderfully knowledgable and was able to answer questions as well as give her prepared remarks. The tour is an hour, but we could have spent much more time exploring the ship and reading the material available. Don't miss this!

    Fabulous and informative tour - I learnt so much about this difficult period in Irelands history - hadn’t realised the complexity. Abby was a terrific guide- very knowledgeable and responsive to our questions. She knows her stuff!

    I thought I knew this part of Dublin well but how wrong I was! Our excellent guide Phelim packed in the stories and insights during this entertaining walking tour from Richmond Barracks to Kilmainham Gaol. A major focus was the many interesting characters who are associated with the area. Highly recommended.
