Teeling Virtual Tour

Teeling Distillery

Come explore the Teeling Distillery! Located in the heart of the historic Liberties, against the backdrop of a city steeped in whiskey history, the Teeling Whiskey Distillery opened its doors in 2015 as the first new distillery in Dublin for over 125 years. Once home to over 37 distilleries, Dublin is no stranger to the craft of whiskey making and we are proud to have brought the tradition of distilling back into the heart of Dublin city centre with the opening of our distillery.

Guinness Storehouse

It's the final month of the Creatives Against Covid exhibition a the Guinness Storehouse. During the Covid-19 pandemic, the Creatives Against Covid-19 project invited submissions from around the world to explore interpretations of the word ‘SOON’. This word inspired a sense of optimism, unity, hope and patience that struck a chord around the world – and the result was a collection of hundreds of pieces of art that truly captured a moment in time. See a selection of these works in the exhibition Soon is Now.

Yoga Flow with Yoga Kitchen (Live Online) 

Yoga Kitchen Francis Street

11am

Join Sarah for this 60 minute online open level Yoga class and begin your weekend with a sweet connection to breath, body and spirit. Equal parts nourishing & strengthening, this mid-morning class will give you a shining start to your day.
Our online classes take place using Zoom.
Zoom is an interactive meeting space, through which you can take a live class with a Yoga Kitchen teacher. Students with a web camera on will be seen by the teacher while they practice and receive feedback, as if the instructor was right there in their living room. Also, by the class being live, students can interact with the teacher and with each other as though they were all practicing in the same room. We know that a real class is ideal and we will try to make this one feel as close to real as possible.


How it works:

Once enrolled in the online class you will need to setup Zoom on your computer or phone. Zoom is compatible with almost all major devices such as PCs, Macs, iPads, Android devices and more.
You book the class on Mindbody (our booking platform) as normal. 20 minutes ahead of class start time, you’ll be emailed a link to join the class! Booking will close 30 minutes ahead of class start time.
