With Irish whiskey on the upswing, we think it’s time for a trip to the Emerald Isle. Marcus Parmenter of The Whiskey Wash has Dublin covered with this no-nonsense guide. First he steers us to Dingle Whiskey Bar, an offshoot of Dingle Distillery in County Kerry, known for its innovative young whiskies. “For something different, try the Dingle Batch 3 Cask Strength, and then sit back and watch Dublin go by,” Parmenter suggests.

Whiskey, wood—what are you waiting for?

And don’t miss Bowes Lounge, pouring since 1880, which apparently serves most Irish whiskies. Need more motivation? “The wooden interior stretching out in front of you, a snug to your right and sturdy wooden bar perfect to lean against while having a dram and chat.”

Another must-visit: Teeling Whiskey Distillery, whose 24-year-old Vintage Reserve took Best Single Malt at the 2019 World Whiskies Awards. Before Teeling, Dublin didn’t have a working whiskey distillery for more than 50 years, Parmenter notes. It’s never too late.
