What you'll do

Private Whiskey Trail to the midlands of Ireland. Your Whiskey Specialist Host will meet you at your accommodations at 9:30am. Executive transport is ready for boarding and we head out of the city for the west - to rural Ireland. Your Host for the day will entertain you as you sit back and enjoy the Irish countryside. Don’t get too comfortable! Our first stop is only one quick hour down the road - Kilbeggan Distillery. We take the tour here at Kilbeggan which includes a master class in the tasting of three Irish whiskeys from the Kilbeggan Distillery Range – Kilbeggan Irish Whiskey, Kilbeggan Single Grain and Tyrconnell Single Malt. Next we visit one of Ireland’s most authentic towns, Athlone. Enjoy some free time here / grab some lunch. When we regroup, your host will take you for a visit to Sean’s Bar – Ireland’s oldest pub. They have their very own whiskey brands and you’ll enjoy a tasting of Sean’s Specially Blended & Single Malt Irish Whiskeys. Another quick transfer by road will have us at the home of Tullamore D.E.W., the operational Tullamore Distillery. This is a fascinating new tour and tasting and is a real treat for the whiskey fan. We hit the road for Dublin and have you back at your accommodations for 6:30pm

My Dad and I share the same the name, John Callely. We share the same pride of country and we have a particular grá (Gaelic for love) for Irish whiskey tourism, an industry that has been good to us over our combined 40 years’ experience. We’re glad to say our name is synonymous with premium whiskey experiences in Irish tourism circles, so much so that we formed Whiskey Island to share these experiences with Airbnb guests. Be our guest, and John Junior or John Senior (depending on which one of us is available) will give you a very special glimpse at the booming Irish whiskey industry along with a look at it's incredible history.
