A Whiskey Wonderland for Grafton Street

Whiskey lovers are in for a treat as the Irish Whiskey Museum will be opening its doors at 119 Grafton Street and 37 College Green in August.

The museum will feature exhibitions on the history of Irish whiskey, interactive posters and a bar where Irish whiskeys can be enjoyed. Rare items of whiskey memorabilia, including items dating back to the 1800s have been sent in to the exhibition from collectors all over the world.

Well-known Irish whiskey brands Jameson, Tullamore Dew and Bushmills will be exhibited at the museum along with smaller Irish distillers such as Teelings.

The museum will be spread over three floors and is ideally located opposite the front gates of Trinity College in a beautiful Gothic style listed building.

The opening of a museum dedicated to whiskey comes at a time when sales of Irish whiskeys are soaring, particularly in the US market and exports worldwide are expected to double by the end of this decade. Extreme Tours Ireland, owners of the Irish Whiskey Museum museum are hoping to attract 100,000 visitors in its first year. 

Dublin’s newest museum looks set to be a great addition to the list of tourist attractions in the city and to the bustling Grafton Street area!
