    My wife is travelling out to Dublin for a finance conference this week.

    What should I have her pick up for me while there?

    Is it worth buying any Irish whiskey while there or is everything basically imported anyway?

    What about tweed fabrics, etc?

    Ho ho! :embar:

    The Celtic Whiskey Shop on Dawson St just off St Stephen's Green in the centre of the city is a great shop for Irish Whiskey, they'll advise based on taste and budget.

    At the bottom of Dawson Street is the side entrance to Trinity College on Nassau Street where all the tweed, Aran sweater and gift shops are.

    I am no expert in Irish Whiskey - any suggestions in what is the best domestic-only (or at least non-US available) choice?

    I'm no expert either but here's what a mate sent me when I asked him the same question a while ago (not sure which are domestic only/not available in US) -


    Jameson 12 year old and Jameson Crested 10 are the tastiest Irish Whiskies in their price range - €43 and €28 respectively.

    Bushmills Black Bush - €28

    Bushmills 10 Year Old - €40

    For something special: Redbreast 12 Year Old - €52 Irish Whiskey of the Year 2010 - Jim Murray's Whisky Bible

    Powers 12 Year Old is well nice too but closer to €60.

    All of the above can be purchased in places like Tesco and Airports for less.

    I sent my wife this list - although I think a lot of it is available here.

    Tyrconnell 17
    Connemara 17
    Locke’s Grand Crew (probably out of it)
    Midleton Barry Crockett

    We'll see what happens.

    Your list is slightly more baller than mine! Some of them will definitely be available in the Airport duty free as well as downtown.
