New Irish Whiskey Museum Gets Green Light to Build €2m Project

After two years in the making the Irish Whiskey Museum has finally been given a green light to start construction works on a €2m museum.   With investment secured and all planning applications granted this new visitor attraction will occupy the beautiful Gothic Revival style building across from the main entrance of Trinity College on College Green.  

It will be a first ever Irish Whiskey Museum.  A new concept, that brings the intriguing tale of Irish whiskey and its impact on the global whiskey market to life.  Bringing all of the Irish whiskey brands together, both old and new, its vision is to reclaim Ireland as the original home of whiskey.  This interactive, ultra modern experience will depict the rise and fall and current renaissance of Irish whiskey.   With a contemporary bar and guided tour this project will provide employment for full team of construction workers and 25 full time jobs when its doors open. 

CEO Keith McDonnell says ‘…we are delighted to be progressing with this project.  We saw an opportunity to bring a vacant building in the heart of the city centre back to life.  Our tour concept is unique, unlike the current whiskey tours, we differ by focusing on the wider intriguing history of Irish whiskey, incorporating all Irish whiskey brands, both new and old.’ 

Construction works are due to commence this month and it is due to launch towards the latter end of the summer season.  The Irish Whiskey Museum will be Dublin’s newest and most centrally located visitor attraction.  Situated at the start of the new Dubline, which stretches from Trinity College to Thomas Street, Failte Ireland have welcomed this new development.  Whiskey distillers such as Diageo, Pernod Ricard, Bushmills, Tullamore Dew and Teeling have also endorsed the project. 

What was once a vacant building in the heart of the city centre will now welcome domestic and international visitors as well as true whiskey connoisseurs through its doors.
