Destinations / Europe

If you’re headed to Dublin, you likely already know about the city’s drinking culture. While you’re in town, make sure you catch a tasting or tour at one of these can’t-miss spots.

 

The Jameson Experience

While Jameson Irish whiskey is no longer distilled within Dublin, you can still visit the previous site of the Jameson distilleries for what is now called The Jameson Experience. There, you can get photos of the historic structures, enjoy a tasty drink in the stylish bar or take an hour-long tour where you learn all about the history of the company. Tours include a whiskey tasting, where you compare Jameson to American and Scottish whiskeys, and a voucher for an additional free drink at the bar.

 

The Guinness Storehouse

Visit the expansive Guinness outpost in Dublin for a fully immersive experience. The Guinness Storehouse is absolutely massive and includes a ton of things to do and see. You can book a guided or self-guided tour and pick up an audio guide if you so wish, but the self-guided tour is nice because it lets you see the plethora of exhibits at your own pace. Learn how Guinness is made, explore the company’s iconic marketing campaigns and enjoy a tasting. Eat at one of several restaurants, all serving delicious Guinness-inspired menu items. Learn how to pour the perfect Guinness. Take your free drink voucher, which comes with your tour ticket, and enjoy a Guinness on the house at one of several bar venues. The best, though, is Gravity Bar, a circular room that provides amazing views of Dublin.

 

The Irish Whiskey Museum

The Irish Whiskey Museum is a quick stop if you’re visiting Trinity College or another nearby site. Tucked into a small building, the museum has a well-stocked bar where you can simply enjoy a drink with the help of the knowledgeable bartenders, or you can book a guided tour that takes you through Ireland’s overall history of whiskey and how Irish culture and history were influenced by whiskey over time. This experience is a nice complement to The Jameson Experience and, at the end, you get to taste a handful of some of Ireland’s best whiskeys.

How to Eat Like a Local with OodyMate

Truly immersing yourself in a foreign culture is one of the main reasons to travel, whether you’re learning a local dance or sipping wine with a vineyard owner in Italy. Traveling outside your comfort zone also involves sampling local cuisine, but if you’re visiting a major city like Rome or Paris, eating like a local usually means stepping far out of the city center, where eateries tend to cater to unadventurous tourists. But finding a worthy eatery can hog hours of your trip time as you pore over listings on TripAdvisor or Yelp.
