About Whelehans Wines & Contact


Whelehans Wines was launched in 2014 by David Whelehan in the flagship location of the Silver Tassie in South County Dublin. David has been submerged in the world of wine for over 40 years. Tutored by his father ‘TP’ he learned the rudiments of wine tasting at an early age and continues to fine tune his palate daily.  David has built up a great team of knowledgeable and enthusiastic wine professionals and with their help he has built up one of the most exciting wine offerings in Ireland.

The company ships eighty percent of the wines they offer directly from some of the world’s greatest and most highly awarded wineries. The company developed organically and now encompasses a highly awarded Wine Bar, Wine school, Corporate Gift Division and a fledgling  Wholesale company. The company’s tagline is ‘Great Wines, Great Taste  we take great service as a given and are only too pleased to go the extra mile. We delight in chatting about wine to the most knowledgeable but derive just as much pleasure in welcoming and encouraging the latest recruit to wine.

Best Fine Wine Merchant (Dublin) 2019

“David Whelehan and his highly talented staff are now offering a world class experience, one you will scarcely see matched outside of Berry Brothers and Rudd in London, Lavinia in Paris or Astor Wines in New York. A beyond-worthy continuing winner and a place Irish wine lovers should really cherish”.
