Cork No.1

Cork No 1.

The Irish Whiskey Society has a regular schedule now in Cork since 2013.


The tastings are usually run the last Wednesday of the month. This is in addition to the Dublin Chapter on the last Thursday of the month. The aim is to introduce the world of whisk(e)y to a whole new audience of members (while still allowing the possibility to attend both for the brave!)

Membership to the Irish Whiskey Society entitles all paid up members, discounted tastings in all our chapters!

- First Chapter formed outside of the Society home town of Dublin –

The inaugural meeting of Cork Chapter No.1 was held July 3rd, 2013 at the Porterhouse Cork and confirmed what was always suspected, we love Whiskey and learning more about Whiskey! A few more tastings in 2013 prompted the regularising of the Irish Whiskey Society in Cork.
Please check back regularly for updates and if you require any further information or would like to be kept abreast of developments please email us
