What to do on a rainy Dublin day? This was a great solution for a couple of hours...others had the same idea and it was busy but very well organised. We purchased tour tickets with a 1 hour 45 minute wait which passed fairly quickly with a couple of Jamesons hot drinks to warm us through...the hot chocolate and toasted... More

Well organized, moderately priced, and very informative tour. They have this down to a fine art. You tour and learn about the distillery process and follow it up with a whiskey sample.

My wife brought me there after I finished exams to get a break away knowing I'm a huge Jameson fan. I wasn't disappointed I was lucky 🍀 enough to be chosen to do the whiskey tasting at the end of the tour which made it more memorable. You get a personalised certificate to say your a official jameson whiskey which... More

A definite contrast to the Disney-type sound and lights Guinness Storehouse experience. Enjoyable tour with friendly staff. Tasting session fun with the added bonus of a drink afterwards. Not sure about "Value for money".

My wife and I arrived at the Old Jameson Distillery around 1 pm on a Saturday. The building itself is lovely; it includes a nice looking bar and a courtyard outside with several restaurants. These establishments are necessary, as we found out, as we had to wait 2 hours for the next available tour. It ended up being a good... More

A trip to Dublin would not be complete without a visit here. It is very busy, but very well organised. Our tour guide Rob was brilliant, very friendly and funny. The tour is accessible to those with limited mobility as there is a lift to access the upstairs. The Whiskey tasting was obviously a big plus and good fun and... More

A pleasant tour. Seemed a bit rushed, not giving much time to ask questions. Even the tasting session seemed a bit rapid. Perhaps I take too long to savour my whiskey!? Not great value for money relative to the other tours/attractions we visited. The Irish coffee from the bar was though very enjoyable indeed...

Book the tour in advance online otherwise you might have to wait on the spot for a tour through the Distillery. I already booked my tickets in advance and could easily enter the tour. It is really enjoyable and not too long...you hear all about the history of Jameson, how they produce it and get to taste 3 different whiskeys.... More

We enjoyed this fun and informative tour. The fact that the whiskey is no longer made there really didn't matter.Our guide Kevin was great.Enjoyed the comparison of 3 whiskey tastings. I am not a big whiskey drinker so appreciated the option that the complimentary drink could have ginger ale and lime mixed in.
