Whiskey Business

An Irish tour Company

Ireland's premier whiskey tour experience. We design bespoke whiskey tours for clients who wish to experience and learn about the magical elixir of life, whiskey

The word 'whiskey' (or whisky) comes from the Irish (or 'Gaelic') uisce beatha, meaning water of life. Whiskey has been produced in Ireland for over 1000 years. Long before the British Empire invested in 'Scotch' whisky, Irish whiskey was being shipped around the world and smuggled into America during prohibition. 

Ireland boasts the worlds finest distilleries and all within a short drive of each other. We give you unparalleled behind the scenes access to Ireland's most ancient distilleries, Jameson, Redbreast, Middleton, Green Spot, Kilbeggan, Tullamore Dew, and Powers to name but a few.

We specialise in dealing with international clientele. 

So, let us design you a custom tour that takes in Ireland's rich whiskey heritage, matures your palate, trains your nose and leaves you salivating for more. 







Whiskey Business  - An Irish Tour Company.

Ireland has all the ingredients for an amazing whiskey tour, but no one had put it all together, until now.  Consumers were crying out for a complete tour package that highlights the unique Irish whiskey heritage and the unique flavour of Irish whiskey. We have captured the quintessential Irish spirit (not just the alcoholic type) and we have distilled it  into a joyous experience which lets you explore an authentic and time honoured tradition of Ireland, the craft and consumption of whiskey. 

Whiskey Business Tours is a premium product service provider who caters to corporate and private clients. We want to share Ireland's whiskey history and beautiful scenery with everybody and we're not going to let a little thing like "price" get in the way! We build tours for all budgets, whether that be corporate retreats in need of sophisticated hospitality or a small group of friends looking to travel and experience the world. 

We especially love dealing with our Irish diaspora. Irish-Americans and Irish-Canadians, ex-patriots and second generation immigrants. Come home to mother Ireland, we've been waiting for you with open arms. We have the fire on and a hot whiskey at the ready. Let us show you the real Ireland. Authentic and breathtaking.

  • If you're looking for a local guide, Jamie's your guy! He was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and always went above and beyond to ensure that our experience in Ireland was exciting and unique.

  • I went on a tour with Jamie and would highly recommend him to anyone! He’s super knowledgeable, professional and easy to get along with. Next time I’m in Ireland I’d definitely go on his tour again!
    — Jaimee, B.C., Canada
  • On my first trip out of the US I toured Ireland with Jamie. Between the amazing country and lucking into such an awesome guide I could not have been happier. The trip definitely awoke the 'travel bug' in me and I hope to both see more of Ireland and use Jamie as a guide again!
    — Jacob, United States
  • Having Jamie as my tour guide while going through Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland made the entire trip. He was more than just a guide, he was our friend. Time with him was never a dull moment. I can’t image going back without him. And best of all, he showed us the real Irish nightlife through the many pubs!
    — Nick, United States
  • I had a fantastic time in Ireland! I saw all the must sees, but also a lot of more hidden places. The small group size makes travelling easy and helps to meet wonderful people. Jamie is a sensational and enthusiastic guide. He takes care of all the details so I can relax and have fun. Generous in time and knowledge, he made my trip a time to remember for a lifetime!
    — Marianne, Quebec, Canada
  • In June 2017 I had the pleasure of being part of one of Jamie’s tours, and it was the best tour experience I’ve ever had! Jamie’s knowledge and passion for his home country is second to none. His individual attention and natural organizational skills made the trip feel like a group of friends experiencing the Irish culture, rather than a group of strangers being shown the sights. It is because of Jamie and his passion towards his tours, that my Irish adventure won’t soon be forgotten!
