If you want to do the tour (I strongly advise it), book the tour as soon as you arrive & then have a look around. Otherwise, you may miss out on the tour. Lots to see, you get to sample various whiskys and learn the secrets to Irish Whisky. Great variety of things to purchase in gift shop.

We went here first thing in the morning before leaving Dublin and expected to be the only ones. not the case! Bought the tickets on arrival, they take maybe 15 people at a time. Interesting tour. They give you whiskey tasting at the end and a glass of Jameson/ginger. Worth the visit

Small but good tour with a whisky tasting session and free drink at the end, the tour guide was very funny and a highlight of the tour. There's a well stocked gift shop in situ too.

Food was good however the vegatarian meal although nice, a chickpea curry, was no wear to the value of the set meals...i felt a bit ripped off. I was expecting traditional irish... More

This was a very well organised and structured tour, with detailed tasting of single, double and triple blend whiskies. We then had a Jameson cocktail which was both refreshing and divine! The distillery has long since relocated to county Cork but this museum is testament to Jameson's contribution to Dublin's past community and history.

It was cool... not amazing or great... got a bottle with my name on it... went on the tour which was interesting but you aren't touring anything but a series of fabricated displays... worth about an hr of your time..

Good for wiskey lovers. But the drawback is that it is open only till 5-6 in the evening. Most of my friends we were late in the conference could not visit it. Also it is not open on weekends. But a guided tour for 30 minutes is good. You can get to tastes some amazing drinks. You have to pay... More

such a good time learning about whiskey making & tasting different flavors of whiskey due to types of barrels used. Jameson and Cranberry is hard to beat.
