If you like a smooth, triple distilled Irish Whiskey from time to time then yesterday’s announcement of €1bn in the Irish Whiskey sector is great news.
Currently plans for 15 new distilleries across the country are underfoot; bring the total number of distilleries from 4 a number of years ago to 15 in the next few years.What great news for the Irish drinks industry & tourism in general.Irish Whiskey is so unique in smoothness & flavour & has an undisputable quality.It's historical heritage stretches back centuries, although it went through a bit of a decline in the early part of the last century, the last few decades have seen a rise in popularity of this wonderful tasting drink again.Irish Whiskey to me means tradition, heritage, quality & of course pride!

Here are some Irish Pub Whiskey Ideas to get you in the mood!!
Positioned just of the bustling Grafton Street, this late Victorian, traditional pub offers welcome break from the business of Dublin’s main shopping thoroughfare.
Always comfortable, cosy & welcoming this pub is like a getting a hug from an old friend!
With its traditional red brick exterior, the entrance door is flanked on either side by two cast iron metal arm lanterns, discreetly highlighting the entrance way.Inside lies a lovely traditional pub with warm rich timber tones, marble counter tops, gleaming brass counter top lanterns , chandeliers & wall lights illuminating this cosiest of pubs.Walls are panelled with mirrored insets or wallpapered panels, seating covered in plush velour’s inviting you to sit & relax.
This is a great pub to have a chat in, no blaring music or TV just good old chat.That’s one thing I love about some of the more traditional Irish Pubs.............no music!!Just the musical sound of laughter, merriment & chatter & maybe an odd singsong...sure what more could you want??
