The tour was very enjoyable and educational. The best parts were when they showed the whiskey in barrels at different ages, 1,3,5,12 & 15 and the different colors and how much evaporated (the angel's share). The tasting, comparing Jameson, Johnny Walker Black and Jack Daniels was very informative. Recommend to all who love whiskey Make sure you book ahead

Good tour of distillery. Great tasting of the whiskey. Worth a visit. Very good tour guide If you do the open top bus tour ( yellow bus €10) bus stops outside the distillery & Guinness storehouse- can combine both on one day.

Book your tour online for a convenient time slot. Our 2 pm tour would've been sold out. If you arrive early, the lobby has a bar and courtyard a small bistro. Tour was relaxed, yet full of knowledge. It included tasting and comparing of Bourbon, Scotch and Jameson. With your drink ticket, you can relax afterwards with either straight Jameson... More

The tour is quite pricey, but it's worth it. Our guide Barry was very friendly and all the information he provided was very interesting. For all whisky lovers this is a must-do in Dublin, and the tasting after the tour is great.

A meal accompanied by Jameson cocktails if you're not up to the ‘neat’ Jameson Whiskey experience. I was quite surprised. A real taste sensation. The Barrelman, for me, was much more of a marketing trick than actual entertainment, but hey, that's how we got interested. Just don't expect too much of him. The food was good - very good, in...

We were hosted by Evan on our visit. He was a great tour guide who really made the visit fun. Ending the tour with a cocktail was just a bonus! After our complimentary cocktail we stopped at the main bar for a couple of fancier mixed drinks. They were a little pricey, but well worth the money after watching them... More

we were a little dissapointed, because no Whisky is produced there in Dublin anymore. So it is more like a museum tour, than visiting a distillery. All was explained quite good, but for a whisky lover not the ideal tour. Sampling was a comparison between Scotch Whisky, Jameson and a Bourbon. It would be better to sample 3 different jameson...

Not sure if the hour long experience was worth it... Very mediocre. 5 minute movie (very well done- like an advertisement), 25 minute tour, tasting + drink. The tour isn't of a working area-- lots of re-creations and some mannequins acting things out. The restaurant and bar area are pretty expensive... But hey, thanks for the free Wifi!

This is a guided Whiskey tour just over an hour or so. The tour is informative and interesting, Full details of the process were explained well by our guide. The layout is good. They cheat a little at the end by comparing their whiskey with a Western Malty Scotch whisky which is not as smooth (as expected) and Bourbon which... More
