DoDublin and The Capital’s Top Distilleries
Dublin ticks all the boxes for a city break. Whether you’re interested in history, art or literature, there are options aplenty at its National Museums, National Gallery, and other attractions. Meanwhile, for those looking to go out and explore the capital’s nightlife, the city is bustling with café’s and world-famous pubs, as well as one of the globe’s most famous tourist attractions – Guinness Storehouse. Whatever you choose to visit, DoDublin Bus Tours offer the ultimate Dubliner’s Guide to Dublin, providing the ideal way to view the city.
Another area that’s becoming increasingly popular for visitors is the capital’s recently opened world class whiskey attractions. Dublin’s whiskey scene has been quietly growing and becoming a global leader in whiskey tours.
Until recently, Jameson Distillery was one of the only attractions in the field. In 2015, however, Teeling Whiskey Distillery opened its doors in the Liberties right in the heart of the city, followed by Pearse Lyons Whiskey Distillery in late 2017. Now, there’s also Dublin Liberties Distillery and Roe & Co, allowing great choice for tourists.
Dublin has a rich history in whiskey making going back to around 1400, almost 100 years before Scotland. Although not widely known, Ireland and indeed Dublin led the way in the world whiskey market. That is until a perfect storm led to its demise – the introduction of prohibition in the US, the Irish Civil War, and, probably most significantly, Irish whiskey producers’ reluctance to take advantage of the invention of the column still – a more efficient method of distilling. This was an invention adopted willingly by Scottish whisky producers.
DoDublin’s world famous hop on hop off tour is a great way to travel to all of Dublin’s best whiskey attractions. Celebrating over 30 years as Dublin’s original and leading tour provider, DoDublin remains the city’s highest rated hop on hop off tour, with guides who are born and bred Dubliners that know the capital better than anyone.
Dubliners are known for the “craic”, and for not taking themselves too seriously. This is certainly true of the DoDublin Tour Guides. Knowing how to strike the perfect balance between informative and entertaining, DoDublin guides are natural hosts. Their infectious enthusiasm for their hometown is evident to see.
Dublin city itself is teeming with personality and is proud of its reputation as one of the friendliest places in the world. It’s full of history, character and fun and DoDublin’s guides will bring you to experience the best of it.
From The Irish Emigration Museum at EPIC and the Jeanie Johnston ship in the historic Dublin Docklands, to the sights, sounds and smells of Teeling Whiskey Distillery, the Guinness Storehouse and Kilmainham Gaol, Dublin has so much to offer. A hop on hop off tour allows visitors to unlock more of the city, making it easier to visit attractions and fit lots more activities into a short space of time.
