About Whelehans Wines
Whelehans Wines is the culmination of three generations experience of working and of promoting wines in Ireland where the philosophy from day one has been to unreservedly focus on seeking out producers who are unequivocally terroir focused.
Whelehans Wines opened its doors in December 2014 and from day one has showcased some of the world's most thrilling wines shipping them directly from the wineries on an exclusive basis. Alongside a unique offering of very carefully sourced wines we offer a wide offering of craft beers and ciders with a particular focus on those locally-produced. Needless to say we have a really eclectic spirit offering so if you are chasing a trendy gin or an up and coming whiskey we are very likely to have it!
The store has been designed to be fun and engaging with all wines being supported with notes on why the wine has been selected by the team and what makes it special. The background music is jazz, all the team are knowledgeable and really enjoy recommending wines which they feel the customer will thoroughly enjoy and want to return for, suffice to say a memorable shopping environment for the right reasons!
Every day we pull a few corks from wines at different price points so if you are passing by drop in as there is always a sense of buzz and excitement. If the wines on tasting don't quite tick the box for you we always have the enomatic wine system to fall back on with a further sixteen wines on standby to taste.
We guarantee we can offer some of the most exciting terroir focused wines in the world carefully crafted by some of the world's greatest winemakers. We were particularly honoured to be voted winner of "Creative Retail Start Up Award 2016, Bank of Ireland Start Up Awards" and "Best Fine wine Merchant" 2017&2018 by Tomás Clancy in the Sunday Business Post. More recently we've also won won "Best for Wine Lovers 2017, Food & Wine Awards."
