The tour was about 45 minutes long so it was not to long nor to short. The price was great, and they also have a student discount. You get whiskey comparison and one drink at the end on the ticket, so it´s really great. You also learn a lot on how jameson is made, so if you are a little... More

The Jameson Distillery is a fun excursion on your trip to Dublin. Even if you're not a drinker it's an informative afternoon. You can choose to arrive a little early and have a cocktail in the bar while you wait for your tour to begin. We chose not to do this but the variety of drinks is good, even if... More

I visited Jameson's expecting to be a little underwhelmed after visiting the Guinness Storehouse earlier that day, having read reviews that this was poor in comparison. I could not have been more wrong. The atmosphere is cosy and welcoming as soon as you walk in and all the staff I encountered were very friendly. The tour is extremely interesting; our... More

We took this tour and loved it! Our tour guide, Rob, was the best ever. His tour was informative, interesting, and highly entertaining. He was constantly making sure to include everyone, made jokes, and was very engaging. When you go to Dublin, be sure to take the tour and ask for Rob!

I am not a whiskey drinker, but my fiancée is. We toured the Old Jameson Distillery and I really enjoyed it. They played a short movie that helped show life back when the distillery first opened, which I found interesting. Then we did a small tour and learned how the whiskey was made. Near the end, we were able to... More

Have been here numerous times and it never fails to impress. Now they have an added bonus that everyone gets to do the whiskey tasting. Love the Jameson ginger and lime cocktail

My husband and I are both fans of Jameson whiskey so doing the tour was a must on our honeymoon. Tours are timed so we had approx 15 minutes to wait when we arrived, what better way to fill in some time than with a Jameson cocktail in the bar first - yum! The tour was very interesting and included... More

We checked out both big breweries in town - this one - and the big 'G' down the road. They are both comparable although this one had timed tours so we had to wait awhile before our group was called. You are taken through the old brewery and explained the entire malting process with an obvious biased viewpoint towards Jameson.... More
