Making the journey from Dublin to the Cliffs of Moher can be quite the challenge without shelling out the cash to rent a car. This guided tour makes it easy to affordably travel to the cliffs, as well as other hot spots in Country Clare, including Doolin, Burren National Park, and Galway. Plus, this experience comes with round-trip transport in a comfortable coach and your admission ticket to the main attraction.

My husband (Irish) and I (American) had the opportunity to tour the Pearse Lyons Whiskey Distillery which is located in a beautifully restored church. It's just gorgeous. Bernard explained the history of the area, church and distillery while James explained the distillation process and gave us the run down on the different whiskies and gin we sampled. We thoroughly enjoyed every part of the tour and sampling. They were lovely! When we do have outside visitors we will have to come back!

We did the legacy tour yesterday as part of our staycation and we were blown away by the history and background to the distillery. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and was brilliant at explaining the different types of whiskies and gins. Highly recommend it for the history and the whiskey of course ! Thanks for a great time ??

My husband and I love whiskey and gin distillery tours on the rare times we can get an afternoon to ourselves. We have done quite a few in Dublin over past few years and must say that even though Pearse Lyons is one of the smaller distilleries in the Liberties area of Dublin, it is very impressive and stands tall amongst its titan competitors. We were booked on the legacy tour, booked by customer care rep Laura who gave us a warm welcome and a brief overview of how the tour will run while complying with covid health and safety guidelines. We felt very safe and social distancing / hand sanitising was observed throughout the experience without being overwhelming. Tour had 6 people which was nice. Our guide Sheila was really friendly and really knew her stuff. We learned about the history of the company and the grounds its built on, all really interesting. The graveyard on the site has many fasincating stories of the people buried there and the transformarion of the church into the distillery/museum/shop was very impressive. We had 5 tasting drinks and they made a lovely fuss over the fact it was our 10th wedding anniversary. It really is little things like that that really makes me want to return in the future with more people. We bought a bottle of their 7 year batch brand to mark the occasion, it was de-lish! Tour was just over an hour long. Make sure to add this to your list of things to do next time your in Dublin city! :-)
