Irish whiskey has a long a fascinating story, one that almost faded into history. Professional Blue Badge tour guide Marty McAuley, owner of, blogger and whiskey reviewer for the Sunday Life newspaper, can guide through the past, present and future of Ireland’s best loved spirit.

Join regular tasting sessions at McHugh's Bar, housed in one of Belfast's oldest buildings.

Ulster Whiskey can also arrange:

  • Chartered boat trips to Campbeltown or Islay from Ballycastle see website for details

Whiskey tastings include basic to more exclusive, premium bottlings. Being fully independent, Ulster Whiskey can let you appreciate the full range of Irish whiskeys as they are not a brand ambassador.
