World Whisky Day invites everyone to try a dram and celebrate the water of life. Events are taking place all over the globe. World Whisky Day is all about making whisky fun and enjoyable. It’s not about being exclusive or prescriptive. You can drink it however you enjoy it (ice, water, mixer – whatever works for you).

With Galway having it’s very own Whisky Trail, it may be the only place to go this weekend. Discover Galway’s rich whiskey heritage in some of the finest whiskey bars along the Wild Atlantic Way. On Eyre Square you’ll find historic O’Connell’s and Garvey’s, you can visit An Púcán, located on the city’s old medieval jousting ground, tuck up beside the fire at The Dáil Bar, raise a toast to Galway hero Sonny Molloy, find out about The King’s Head and how he lost it, hear the story of 15th Century Mayor of Galway at Blake’s, discover the rarest Irish Whiskeys at Garavan’s in a building dating to 1650, settle in at Tigh Neachtain and take your favourite bottle home with you after a visit to McCambridge’s or Freeney’s.
