It was interesting to see how process of whiskey is made. The tour isn't to long. Wish it was still an active distillery instead of a museum. My friend was selected as a taster, he is not a whiskey drinker but said that getting to try the different wiskey was fascinating. The whole experience only lasted about an hour.

Great insightful tour. Our guide, Katrina, was excellent. Just the right length of time and a great whisky tasting at the end.

This was a great spur of the moment thing we did. I am not a whiskey drinker but the tour was made really well and it was really interesting learning the proses of whiskey making. The whiskey tasting was something I had not done before and the whiskey ginger ale drink in the end was actually pretty nice.

...and if you dont like it, come anyway :-) interesting tour through the distillery with an entertaining and really funny guide. At the end they let you taste a jameson, a johnny walker and a jack daniels and get the differences of these three explained. And afterwards you get another jameson-whiskey or a jameson-ginger-ale, its included in the price. Just... More

You will have a great time at Jameson’s old distillery, I definitely had! A great and very funny guided tour that ends in a tasting experience. The tour was not too short and not too long, therefore it will not take all day and if you’re in a hurry you can plan other activities as well. However, take your time... More

We wanted to visit the distillery because we had been recommended it by friends. The tour was interesting but didn't find a lot of atmosphere to the place and the tour guide didnt really help with this either. Probably didn't help that I found in the tasting that whiskey isn't for me however the cocktail at the end was lovely.

After being spoiled by the fabulous Guinness Storehouse in the morning, the Old Jameson Distillery was a bit of a let-down in the afternoon. Despite the ticket being a similar price to Guinness, what you get is a lot less. The museum exhibits are much smaller, and you are rushed through by a tour guide who is going through the... More

I really didn't enjoy this tour. Our tour guide was the absolute worst. She gave off the impression that she had memorized a script and she was repeating it word for word. When we asked her questions about things she had said, she really didn't know how to answer.She didn't seem to be knowledgeable at all about whiskey and was... More

A a toast to health in Gaelic! The tour was well organized & included a free drink as well as a whiskey tasting. Book in advance or you will stand in line for tickets...
