Get here early to avoid the queues. Each tour takes about 45 minutes (Tour guide Niall was wonderful) The tour takes you through all the steps of producing this triple distilled whiskey. A short video starts the tour & 8 volunteers are requested to do a tasting session towards the end of the tour. Everyone is given a free glass... More

A really interesting tour that wasn't dragged out or boring. Rob was our tour guide and he was funny, knowledgeable, and it didn't hurt that he was pretty hot!! Would definitely recommend people to go - I've always been a whiskey fan and feel I learned a lot.

I am a native to Dublin, and live here and thought the Jameson Distillery was just something that tourists should see. So when a friend from Ireland recommended it to me I went along with my other half to see what all the fuss was about. We had one guide between about 20-25 people, who brought us around the various... More

Excellent tour! Much better than the self-guided Guinness tour. There is a nice bar at the beginning, and you definitely need to volunteer to be a taster. Gift shop was decently priced. Try the Jameson & Ginger.

Quite busy on a Saturday and you have to take the next available tour - ours was an hours wait so wandered over to Christophe's Cafe and it's a great bit of people watching! There's also a bar and shop you can wander round in whilst waiting for... More

We had an enjoyable visit, very informative with a very enthusiastic, amusing guide. The tour starts off with a short film followed by a tour and explanation of the whiskey making process. At the end you can enjoy a lovely glass of Jamesons, you also have the opportunity to take part in whiskey tasting and receive a certificate for this.

I like whisky so while in Dublin we have to go and have a look. There is a bit of a wait to get in but during your wait there is a Bar that sells everything Jameson, from Irish Coffee (which was really nice) to Cocktails. The tour was very interesting and enjoyable but the tour guys does like to... More

Be aware before you go that you are not actually going to see any Jameson being made. You are taken, with a guide, room to room and each room is a different step in the process. At the end of the tour, you get a free shot of Jameson and 8 people get to do a whiskey taste test. It... More

We thorough enjoyed our trip to the Jameson Distillery. We got there early so we took the opportunity to try out the whiskey hot chocolate and a spiced apple whiskey cocktail. The prices were reasonable and killed half an hour whilst we waited for our tour to begin. The tour of the distillery was educating and interesting but it was... More

Interesting and now I have a taste for whiskey! Not a bad tour. More facts then humour. I was lucky enough to be part of the tasting sessions and I learnt a lot. Worth a visit.
