The Irish Whiskey Museum, which is housed in an Edwardian style listed building on the bottom of Grafton Street is the first Irish whiskey museum in the world! The Museum is housed over three floors with lift access to every floor. Together with excellent bus routes and close proximity to train stations, not to mention several multi storey car parks nearby, in terms of accessibility, the location is hard to beat. The building has been carefully and sympathetically refurbished and has wonderful views over the front of Trinity College and College Green from our Cafe Bar at the entrance level to the Museum.
The Irish Whiskey Museum tells the story of Irish whiskey from its origins to the present day and gives visitors a glimpse of social and political history during the various stages of the rise and fall and rebirth of the whiskey industry in Ireland. Visitors availing of the tour option are given a guided tour of the museum during which our very knowledgeable guides tell stories from the various stages of history. The tours are complemented by state of the art technology and interactive props through four very different areas of the museum representing different stages in the development and growth of whiskey in Ireland. Tours run every day except Christmas day from 10am to 6pm (last tour).
At the Irish Whiskey Museum, we also cater for small to medium sized private groups and parties for every occasion. The atmosphere in the museum is cosy and intimate whether there is 20 or 120 in attendance and we can cater for both size groups and everything in between.
Events are generally held in the evening time once the last public tour has ended. We are very flexible and we will try our best to accommodate any type of event that potential clients are considering. Whether you are entertaining clients, team building, having a staff get-together or whatever the occasion, we will be happy to discuss the options available.

Highland Park Single Malt Scotch Whisky, the ‘Orkney Single Malt with Viking Soul’ distributed by Maxxium UK, celebrated Winter Solstice with two events for over 700 consumers.
The brand hosted its Midwinter Social events on 24 and 25 November at The Old Truman Brewery’s Boiler House, London, to mark the upcoming Winter Solstice and the official start of winter. The narrative of Highland Park is deeply rooted in Nordic traditions. An important time in the Nordic calendar and at Highland Park’s home on Orkney, Winter Solstice marks the shortest day of the year and is typically celebrated with good friends, bonfires, music and dance.
The celebrations, designed to bring to life the brand’s magnificent Viking heritage, were hosted by global brand ambassador Martin Markvardsen and included Highland Park whisky tastings around a fire pit for over 400 people. A selection of Highland Park cocktails were served including the warming Highland Park Hot Toddy and Orkney Old Fashioned, with Nordic inspired food curated by Root + Bone, music from Kipps and live sets from DJ Finnebassen and Eelke Kleijn.
The celebrations were broadcast to a global audience with the first event streamed live globally on Highland Park’s Facebook page, resulting in over 21,000 fans tuning in to watch.
Several trade accounts in and around Shoreditch also featured special Highland Park Winter Solstice serves on their bar menus, including Bull in a China Shop, Cocktail Trading Co. and The Culpeper. The bars which delivered the greatest upweight in sales will be rewarded with a trip to the Highland Park distillery on Orkney in the New Year.
Mike Mackenzie, Highland Park Brand Manager said: “Our Midwinter Social celebrated Highland Park’s Viking heritage in the lead up to the Winter Solstice and we had two fantastic evenings. It was the perfect environment to give consumers a taste of Orkney and our Viking soul. It was also great to see several bars in Shoreditch taking part in the celebrations, creating their own Highland Park winter inspired serves.”
