Booked the tour to celebrate hubby's bday and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. Interesting tour, with a bit of whisky tasting at the end. Hubby loved the whisky and beer combo they do!

This is a fantastic tour to know how whiskey is made and with a mix of Ireland history. This tour is included on the DublinPass card, please go with some free time because the visits are made in groups, so you might have to wait a bit. But this is no problem, there's a bar where you can take a... More

Again slightly overrated and overpriced, but more interesting than the Guinness tour. The tour guide wasn't able to answer many of the questions asked. You do get a tasting of jameson whiskey if that is what you like.

A delightful insight into both the brewing process of whisky in general and the history of Jamesons distillery itself. An excellent tour was topped off by a generoud "whisky tasting session". Not to be missed if you are in Dublin

We had a couple of hours to kill and were in the area so we decided to tour the Jameson Distillery. Beautiful old building and interesting tour guide. Great tastings too. I'm now a lover of Jameson's and had never tried it before.

The distillery was my first attraction in Ireland. The production value of the tour was very high, but (not unexpectedly) it felt like a commercial aimed at convincing me to buy Jameson. The cross-town rival was more comprehensive. The staff was very polite and the bath rooms were clean.

Interesting tour if you like whiskey,not the longest and a good marketing tool for Jameson, although whiskey is no longer produced on this site.

A wonderful tour followed our enjoying the BEST Irish Coffee I have ever had (we had to wait about 30 minutes to get on a tour). Following the tour, of course, they invite you to have... More
