This is a guided tour and our tour guide was awesome. I enjoyed this tour more than the Guinness storehouse. We had a drink at the bar before the tour and you are encouraged to buy a cocktail and bring it on the tour with you. Its a must!!!

No one was brave enough to say otherwise. This was followed by either a generous neats or a long cocktail. interesting it was the cocktail... More

This tour was fine but as we had just visited the guinness factory this was not of the same standard but the prices are on par. However it was informative and interesting, Pat the guide was knowledgeable and took his job seriously. Well done Pat, alas as a non Whisky drinker I didn't participate in the sampling or free drink... More

This is not a working distillery, so you are seeing props. Even so, for those that know little about the production of whiskey it will be informative. For those that might have deeper interests, don't expect much from guide outside of his or her canned presentation. The tasting at the end was a little bit of a farce. There was... More

We arrived at the booking desk to be told the next available tour was over an hour away but we bought our tickets and went and had a late breakfast in the cafe across the courtyard while we waited. You can also wait at the Jameson bar in the museum . we got called up for our guided tour and... More

This tour was very educational and well organized. We went early without a reserved tour spot, which worked out ok (30 minute wait). By the time we left, it appeared there was a 2-3 hour wait for the tour. The included tasting at the end of the tour gave a nice comparison between Jameson and two other whiskeys. In total... More

I took the bus tour and we went past the distillery- as I'm not a beer drinker I decided to try the whiskey distillery instead. It was a very cold morning and I felt quite frozen- tours go by the hour- so I had some time to spare before going on my tour- having a small Irish coffee totally hit... More

This was one of our highlight trips in Dublin. The only way to do the tour is with a guide, and you have to sign up. Please plan accordingly as they can fill up. We arrived around 1145 and only waited an hour for our tour. They go over the history to Jameson and their full process. Our tour guide... More

The tour at the Jameson has changed. Up until 6 weeks ago only a few guest were chosen to sample 3 whiskeys. Now everyone gets to sample 3 whiskeys. An American whiskey, A Scottish peated whisky and Jameson. After the tasting you get Jameson whiskey with tonic water. I was at the Distillery 2 years ago and like the change... More
