In March 2016, Celtic Whiskey Shop in Dublin, decided to open their first bar in Killarney called Celtic Whiskey Bar & Larder. The bar is home to Ireland’s largest private whiskey collection with around 1200 whiskies, most of which are Irish but also a fine selection of Scotch, Bourbon, Canadian, Japanese, French & Welsh whisky can be found. For the non-Whiskey drinker, they offer artisan Irish Gins, craft Beer, an extensive wine list and cocktails, meaning that there is plenty to choose from. The bar also serves bistro style food from 12-9:45pm most of which is locally sourced.
Last year, Celtic Whiskey Bar & Irish Whiskey Experience were awarded the World’s Best Visitor Attraction from Icons of Whisky. Having only been open for less than a year at that point, this was a tremendous achievement for the company.
At the rear of the Celtic Whiskey Bar & Larder is the Irish Whiskey Experience. This experience is a first class destination for whiskey enthusiasts and novices alike. It is a sensory & interactive experience that guides visitors through the history of Irish Whiskey, the distilling process & in-depth tasting of four Irish whiskeys. There are numerous masterclasses to choose from, to suit all occasions & palates. Our in-house whiskey specialists have an abundance of whiskey knowledge & will guide the visitors through an in-depth tasting of the different Irish whiskeys. The classes run seven days a week from 12-7:15pm, most of which last an hour.
International shipping is also offered at the Bar & Experience. Therefore, should you wish to purchase a bottle of whiskey/gin/wine, this can be arranged easily. The bar also has their own whiskey available for purchase called Cill Airne Cask. There are two single casks on offer, which are exclusive to the bar & change every few months. Visitors can fill their own bottle directly from the cask, label &sign their bottle.Celtic Whiskey Bar is a 5 star attraction and a 'must-see' for any Irish whiskey lover!.

- Whiskey classes from in-house whiskey specialists.

Fantastic whiskey selection.
Came across this place by accident. Blown away by the selection they had on offer. The staff were extremely knowledgeable about their Whiskey and offered great recommendations. The prices were very reasonable. It's a perfect location for anyone who wants to try out any Whiskeys or already has their mind set on a particular one. Definitely worth a visit. Siobhan - Dublin
