This tour was one of the best that I have been on in the many "Whiskey Tours" that I have undertaken. I was selected during the visit to be one of the "tasters"! Our guide was brilliant and very professional and informative. The length of the tour was good. Not too long so as to be boring, and not too... More

We went on the Saturday afternoon. It was busy but we were not sardined in. The staff were attentive to individuals. Our tour was ace; interactive, informative and funny. The drinks available at the bar were wide ranging - even if you're not a whiskey fan you'll find something you like.

Went as a group of hens on a weekender, our bride to be loves whiskey so I went along. The building itself is beautiful with a heavy industrial feel remaining amongst the shiny lights and chandeliers made of upcycled jamesons bottles. The bar offered a wonderful selection of hot cocktails which were just the thing needed after an afternoon in... More

We did enjoy the tour, but it felt like more of a touristy thing to do. The building is interesting and the guide was informative. If you are really interested in whiskey and how it is made, I would recommend going to an actual distillery to see things in action. If you just want a brief overview and history in... More

Doesn't matter of you drink whiskey or not, this was a fun tour. This site is no longer their main distillery, so they've done a great job in making it an interesting attraction. Tour guide was informative and funny. Group was given a taste test near the end of the tour, and then a coupon for a full drink of... More

This was a fascinating tour lead by very knowledgable guides. The history of Jameson was fascinating, and my husband loved being selected as one of the testers of the Jameson whiskey -- even got a certificate at the end of the testing. Most enjoyable tour. And their Gift Shop had a wonderful selection of glassware, clothing, and novelties, reasonably priced.
