excellent tour . Although we had to wait as most tours were sold out .It was well worth it. Plus the added bonus of a drink at the end for free.

If you are travelling to Ireland this exhibit is a must see, they take you on a tour of the old distillery with some interesting taste testing at the end and finally a good drink when you are done. Very interesting place to go.

We found this tour more interesting than the Guinness tour, but both are worth doing. The Jameson shop has special Jameson that can't be found anywhere but here. After the tour is a free drink and time to enjoy it.

We had a human being lead the tour! Much more personal than the Guinness storehouse. Very informative and interesting. Good tasting session with a nice certificate as a souvenir and lovely free drink at the end.

I would recomend every visitor of Dublin to visit this museum. You'll learn much interesting not only about the history of whiskey, but also about the history of Ireland. That is very important when you visit a country, learn its traditions and ways. Our guide Jim told us a lot of interesting facts about long life and difficult way of... More

The Old Jameson Whiskey Distillery is a guided tour, showing how Jameson Whiskey is made and what makes Jameson special and different in comparison to other Whiskey. The tour begins with a video in a very nice comfortable small cinema-like room, and follows with the tour itself. At the end of the tour, there was a Whiskey tasting consisting of... More
