Irrevocable Trust Tax Question

Currently funds are in an IRA and minimum distributions are being taken. If I transfer the IRA to an irrevocable trust, can the beneficiaries of the trust take out distributions over the same time period as the person that owned it prior to the transfer? Who pays the taxes, the Trust or the beneficiaries? What rate are they taxed at?
