The tour was informative on the products history. I bought a bottle of Crested Ten from them which I was very happy with. The staff was very helpful as well.

A must place to see. Book in advance if possible as queues present as it is a guided tour need to get booked on to a tour run frequently though. Lots to see very knowledgeable staff. Best part the taste test makes you realise the different tastes of whiskey. Love Irish Whisky after this visit.

My dad especially was disappointed with this tour as he thought it would show you the actual making/bottleing of the whiskey and it was really quite exspensive for what it was

Not very Irish!! Compared to Teelings distillery which I visited the day before, it is very boring and museum like, instead of a working distillery! Although it has a great story and tasting session!

Having organised a trip to Kilmainham Goal, I realised that the only opening I had was for the early birds, which is OK unless you are one of the 'Chosen'. These rare souls get to taste whiskies at the end of the tour and are given a souvenir to take home afterwards. All great fun and really really fascinating. Even... More

You just have to go see how the famous Jameson is made. Even if you don't like liquor, it is fascinating learning how a distillery works.

Good visit but our tour guide did not seem overly enthousiastic. Going thru his script like a machine, no warmth, flat jokes.

I'd been here two years ago, but it has been revamped since then, so I was happy to repeat. You will probably have to wait for the tour as they only run like 4 per hour. I recommend eating at the restaurant upstairs while you wait if you are hungry. After all the usual explanations about the distilling, you will... More
