Dr Pepper equipment.

Dr Pepper Museum

The Dr Pepper tour takes about an hour, with free samples of all their flavors! The equipment is no longer bottling, but they still show how the machines work. They hope to start bottling again in the future. Interesting to hear the history of Dr Pepper and see the private collection of the owner. Small gift shop with food. Check out Groupon for a coupon.

Bottling line.

Last Place That Made Original Formula Dr Pepper

Went to Dr Pepper Bottling Company during the St Patrick's Day Celebration. Our tour guide was great. Well worth the $5 admission, and included unlimited samples. Had a great time in Dublin and at the festival. Well worth a road trip.

Dr Pepper sign in Dublin.

Dublin Dr. Pepper

Officially, as of 1/11/2012, the legal battling between Plano, TX-based Dr Pepper Snapple Group and Dr Pepper Bottling of Dublin ended. "Dublin Dr. Pepper" is no more. The signs have come down. All vestiges of the former cane-sugar-sweetened Dublin Dr Pepper are gone. The last of the sought-after soda was sold out as of 1/11/2012.

The bottling plant will continue to operate for Dr Pepper Snapple Group as the "Dublin Bottling Works, Inc." but will not be producing the former soft drink.

Oldest Dr Pepper Bottling Company

Established in 1891 and never ceased production. Still makes Dr Pepper and other flavors in returnable 10 oz. bottles on 1940's equipment. Largest Dr pepper memorabilia collection in the world. Visit the soda shop and gift shop, tour the museum and bottling plant seven days a week. Open 9-5 Mon-Fri, 10-5 Sat., 1-5 Sunday
