Had a great tour with some friends. I obviously enjoyed the free drink, but also thought it was rather interesting

We visited the Old Jameson Distillery for the Barrelman's Feast. Greeted by our host, the Jameson 'Barrelman,' we were shown into a wonderful dining room upstairs where we chose between a complimentary Jameson, Ginger & Lime drink or simply Jameson straight up. The meal started with a choice of appetizer - soup or salad, followed by a wonderful main course... More

Jameson is my favorite whiskey that is affordable enough to drink regularly, so, I may be biased. That being said, I enjoyed the tour. To paint the picture my friends and I just got off the plane from Boston to Dublin and dropped our bags at the hostel. The obvious step 2 was to go to the Jameson tour. We... More

As is made clear early in the visit to Jameson's, this is the Old Distillery and no longer a working distillery (Jameson's is still distilled in Ireland, but not here in Dublin). As a result, the tour consists of seeing some of the old machinery and distilling equipment, little dioramas of how things were done, and a fairly witty tour... More

I went to Jamesons on the recommendation of a lovely Irish friend of mine. I found the tour both informative and packed with funny cheesy jokes along the way. As well as learning about the production of Whisky we were given a lovely Whisky cocktail at the end the tour guide asked for volunteers for whisky tasters at the end... More

We really enjoyed our tour of the Old Jameson Distillery. The tour begins with a film which is very informative and entertaining. We continue with a tour that explains how Jameson Whiskey is made. The tour is just about the right length of time and ends with a tasting. I also got to participate in a taste test of various... More

The tour guide takes you around the old distillery building which has been set up to show the processes which are followed to make the Whiskey. The guide was very informative. At the end of the tour the chosen few get to compare the tastes of some whiskeys from different countries and everyone gets a sample of the Jamiesons whiskey.
