Very basic tour. If you get a chance to travel around Ireland and experience some of the other brewery/distillery tours, you'll understand what I mean. It felt like a child exhibit without much to it. You just walk into different rooms and take a look at the non-interactive displays. You tour guide will explain the history and how it is... More

The Old Jameson's provides a fantastic and interesting insight into the beginnings of the famous Jameson's Distillery. Chris, our tour guide was just amazing - informative and comical, which kept us amused throughrthe tour. The tour was then followed by whiskey tasting and once that was completed you were presented withan official whiskey tasting certificate. Well worth doing while in... More

I really enjoyed my visit to Jameson. We had a Saturday 10:00am tour. We booked two days ahead online, which I highly recommend to save money and time. The tour was 50 minutes and quite entertaining due to our tour guide. I really like that you were able to see the history of it all. It wasn't crowded either. Maybe... More

Jameson was the first thing we took in on our visit to Dublin and it set the tone for a fantastic visit we are not likely to forget. A little removed from many of the city’s popular attractions, it is still easily accessible by foot or the hop-on, hop-off bus (we walked) and given the fame of Irish whiskey, it... More

We were unable to enter because even though we arrived a few hours before closing, they were booked for the day. I would strongly recommend going early in the day and booking the tour you want, and then come back.
