Opened in 2015 on the site where the company first started back in 1782, the boutique-style Teeling Distillery is on a mission to bring traditional whiskey production back to city center. In fact, it’s the only operational distillery in city limits. Fully guided tours are led by passionate “Whiskey Ambassadors,” who showcase every step of the process from milling and mashing to fermenting and distilling. It’s the perfect opportunity to learn about Teeling, the Irish whiskey industry, and its place in Dublin’s history. At the end of the tour, you can choose from three tasting options based on your expertise and budget. Don’t leave without checking out the information and artwork on display in the gallery.
