There are almost 40 events and promotions running in distilleries and venues across Dublin over the course of the weekend, all to celebrate Irish whiskey.
Launching earlier today, the full schedule of events was unveiled by TD Andrew Doyle. Part of Fáilte Ireland’s Taste the Island campaign, it’s a very valid excuse to enjoy a glass or two of the nation’s favourite tipple.
Events will kick off tomorrow with Taste Dublin’s Golden Triangle, an evening of whiskey tasting happening at Arthur’s Bar on Thomas Street.

All proceeds on the night go to a good cause and will be donated to the Solas Project, a local charity based in The Liberties in Dublin 8.
Celebrating the culture and rich heritage of Irish Whiskey, the festival offers locals and visitors alike the chance to experience all that’s involved in the whiskey-making process.
As part of the Festival of Irish Whiskey, Dublin's newest distillery, Roe & Co are offering free tours at 3pm on each day Thursday - Sunday 10-13th October.
