Dublin's hottest new tourist attraction - a must-see for fans of Irish whiskey - is the Dublin Liberties Distillery.
Ireland’s most anticipated craft distillery opening happened in February when the Dublin Liberties Distillery finally opened its doors following two years of construction, with a promise to lead the industry’s new wave Irish whiskey movement.
Production of the Dublin Liberties Distillery’s whiskey portfolio – which includes award-winning and international brands, The Dubliner and The Dublin Liberties – has now commenced at the distillery on Mill Street in Dublin 8, under the supervision of renowned Master Distiller, Darryl McNally, who leads a team seeking to push the boundaries of Irish whiskey-making at the distillery.

Boasting an immersive visitor experience and cocktail bar, the Dublin Liberties Distillery offers visitors an experience unlike any other whiskey distillery in Ireland, as they offer an unrivaled, up-close view of modern Irish whiskey-making as it happens, with daily tours around the working distillery. After the tour, visitors can enjoy lunch or a coffee in the café or a whiskey cocktail in the bar upstairs.
The new distillery is minutes from the tourist center of Dublin in the heart of the Liberties district, the historic capital of Irish whiskey and an area with a colorful and fascinating history. The stories of the Liberties are brought to life in the whiskeys made by McNally and his team at the distillery, which is bringing a further boost to the Liberties and Dublin’s thriving tourism scene.
Recognized around the world as one of the most skillful and progressive Irish whiskey distillers in the industry, McNally’s desire to push the boundaries of the Irish whiskey category inspired Quintessential Brands founders, Warren Scott and Enzo Visone, to join with him and build a distillery to match Darryl’s vision. This is now a reality.
Darryl McNally, Master Distiller at The Dublin Liberties Distillery comments; “Making whiskey is my passion, my lifeblood, and to be doing it in the heart of Dublin’s historic distilling district is nothing short of a dream come true for me. I believe the future for Irish whiskey is in innovation and pushing the boundaries – and that’s what I’ll be working with the team here to deliver – the best Irish whiskey you could have the luck of getting on your lips. We’re inspired by the past, but not bound by it, and can’t wait to show the world just how diverse Irish whiskey can be.”
Shane Hoyne, Chief Marketing Officer for Quintessential Brands, majority owner of The Dublin Liberties Distillery, adds; “Irish whiskey’s rise over the last few years has been phenomenal, but with talented visionaries like Darryl emerging, I believe we’re now entering its most exciting era yet. Darryl is a constant source of ideas and combined with his unrivaled distilling skill, there are no limits for Irish whiskey. Right now, we’re taking a moment to celebrate the team’s achievement in building this fantastic distillery but with much more to come from us this year, I believe this is the year the Dublin Liberties Distillery will make its mark on the Irish whiskey category.”
