Irish Whiskey Museum

Today was a nice leisurely ramble around Dublin.  At one point it started to rain a bit.  Rain in IrelandShocker. 

However, it worked out for the best because in order to get out of the rain for a bit we decided to check out the Irish Whiskey Museum.  

This is the the first (if not only) Irish whiskey museum in the world.

The tour is only €15 and it lasts for an hour.  The guides are very knowledgeable and they tell the complete story of Irish whiskey.  There are a couple of interactive exhibits and some funny anecdotes to keep one entertained. 

The museum is not affiliated with any one brewer so it wasn't like it was just a commercial for a particular brand. 

The best part of course was the testing.  Included in the admission are good-sized pours of three different whiskeys.  And of course avoiding the rain.
