Went for a day out in Dublin with the family and for me this tour was the highlight of our entire week in Ireland. We took advantage of the Luas park & ride on the outskirts of the city and the distillery is just a couple of minutes walk from one of the first stops on the tram (Smithfield) heading... More

Not a very engaging tour of the facility. The best part was the tasting and comparison to less filtered whiskies.

The staff were friendly, funny and its great to see the passion in the staff when delivering the tour, it made the tour exciting to learn about the history of Jameson Whisky. And of course the free whisky tasting and drink - thumbs up!! :D

If you love whisky you'll love this tour. You learn how whisky is made and get to try some samples at the end. The staff are really knowledgeable and can answer pretty much any question thrown at them!

Our guide was great! Very entertaining and funny. They no longer make Jameson in this location so the tour is just a bit lack luster, but it made for a nice history lesson.

A must do when in Dublin. Not only do you get to learn the process, you also get a very generous serving of the finished product. Hic! Hic! Personally we went for the afternoon tour, it then gave us the opportunity to have a nap once back at our hotel, before evening dinner!

We loved this place! We had lunch, and a few drinks here. Took the hop on and hop off bus here and was picked up. Well worth the tour, and the tasting. Had a Very good time, and the food was outstanding.

Went on the tour with my husband. I don't really drink whiskey but when in Dublin we decided it's one of the places you must visit. The tour lasts about up to an hour and there's a comparison tasting. The tour guide was great and quite funny. Really enjoyed the tour glad we went. You get to know how the... More
