Dublin's First Dedicated Whiskey Festival Kicks Off Next Week


There's a bit of a whiskey revolution taking place in Ireland at the moment. The older distilleries are having to expand to meet global demand, and new distilleries are popping up across the country. With all this whiskey-related activity, it makes perfect sense then that the Dublin Whiskey Fest launches next week.


Great Irish Beverages have organised a 6-day festival from the 16th to the 21st of February. The festival will celebrate Irish whiskey, with twenty five venues taking part. Each of the bars participating have the option of selling either a hot toddy, an Irish coffee, an Irish whiskey cocktail, a pairing with a local beer or just a neat serve.

Whiskey Fest is a great way to sample whiskey in plenty of innovative ways - whether it's a Monastic Old Fashioned in Brasserie Sixty6 or a Habanero and Honey Hot Toddy at Bull and Castle there's plenty of options for everyone!


By purchasing a wristband for the festival you'll receive a 30% discount on all whiskey drinks within the 25 establishments. However, we've managed to get our hands on two pairs of wristbands as well as two pairs of passes to the Whiskey Museum to give away to our readers. Simply comment below saying 'Dublin Whiskey Fest' and you will be entered into the draw - winner will be announced at 5pm on Friday, so get commenting!
