Drink driving is a traffic offence, which is different from something like a drug or violence conviction, and disclosure will not be needed for those countries. Some countries like Canada do require disclosure of drink driving offences, but generally this means you would need to apply for a visa and explain the conviction. But for your trip this will not be necessary
