Ireland's premier whiskey tasting event, Whiskey Live Dublin is back once again! This year taking place at the RDS Main Arena, Hall 1 on the Merrion Road on Friday 17th of May; Afternoon Session (1.30-5pm, last pour 4.45pm), Friday Evening Session (6.00-9.30pm, last pour 9.15pm) and Saturday 18th of May; Afternoon Session (1.00-4.30pm, last pour 4.15pm) and Evening Session (5.30-9.00pm, last pour 8.45pm). Tickets for masterclasses will also be available closer to the date.

Showcasing both the long-established and new arrivals to the Irish whiskey scene, sample the latest Irish whiskey releases as well as whiskies from across the globe including Scotland, Japan and the U.S.A. Delicious whiskey and food pairings, informative masterclasses (some of the 2023 favourites included a Pappy Van Winkle masterclass & Redbreast Dream Cask Tasting masterclass) and whiskey cocktails from some of Dublin's most esteemed bars and restaurants will all be present at this year's Whiskey Live. As per previous years, the event will also feature the ever-expanding range of other Irish craft spirits and some whiskey barrel-aged craft beers.

The perfect event for anyone who likes whiskey - from the occasional drinker to those heavily involved in the Irish whiskey trade!

Please note that you cannot attend both sessions on the one date & you can only attend a masterclass that is on during your session time. Limited tickets available.


Complimentary water will be available throughout the event. Sampling sizes will be reduced to encourage safe & responsible drinking. Please visit www.drinkaware.ie for more information. 


Available online for €44.00 + booking fee. The session tickets entitle you to access to the event and include the samples from exhibitors as well as food pairings, whilst stocks last. Masterclass tickets will be available online soon which include entrance to the masterclass and samples. Tickets are refundable up to 30 days before the event.



- This event is strictly over-18s and I.D will be required. Visit drinkaware.ie

- Please note, you cannot buy tickets for both Friday or both Saturday sessions - staff and security reserve the right to refuse entry.

- You can only attend a Masterclass which occurs during the session you have a ticket for. E.g., if you have a Saturday afternoon session ticket, you can only attend a Masterclass during the Saturday afternoon session, you cannot attend a masterclass that occurs during either the Friday evening or Saturday evening sessions. If you fail to comply with these rules and attempt to attend a Masterclass for which you don't have a session ticket for, there will be a fee of €20 to attend the masterclass. This fee will gain you entry to the masterclass only - it will not include entry to the session.
