The Irish and Scotts share a lot of things including a passionate love for whiskey known locally as the water of life.

The western Scottish isle of Islay is located 24miles off the Northern Irish coastline and is an absolute haven for whiskey lovers.

The island boosts 8 classic whiskey distilleries all famed for their peaty, smoky blends but each having their own twist and trade secrets. Premier Experiences Northern Ireland offers a package which can be completely tailored to your needs. We can offer a private boat from various ports on the Northern Irish coast, a knowledgeable guide to accompany you on the boat trip, whiskey tasting and tutorials on the boat to set you up for your trip, tours of the main distilleries, dining, accommodation, and other activities offered on the island.

Whether you want to spend a day on the island or fall in love with the place and want to spend a few days, Premier Experiences Northern Ireland have it covered.
