    Animation at the top! dynamic and well organized. A little hyper too calibrated .... to the chain .. on the other hand if you do not understand English quickly complicated. Everything is in Irish spoken very quickly. the audio-guides do not work well and this takes away from the playful and lively performance of the guide. Very good tasting. Very friendly professionals.

    Very very good and inspiring guide

    Interesting, easy to follow what she said for a person where english is the second language. 1 hour was good. Don't remember the name of the guide but a female, fairly young, less than 25, grown up on the country side. Have a name I can not recognise, Cath... or similar.

    Just great! A super clear guide. The epochs of whiskey production are explained to you in different rooms. The old facilities are more than interesting. The super nice guide involves the participants. The explanations were informative but also humorous. The tasting was simply great and very good. You really get a very high quality whisky
