We took the first tour of the day at 11am. You are guided through the old distillery and learn about the distilling process which takes about 45 minutes going through several buildings on the premises.

I really enjoyed our tour! My husband and I also did the Scotch Whiskey Experience in Edinburgh and thought this tour was much better. We learned a lot about how to make whiskey and our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable. It gets really busy so try to book your tickets online before hand. If you didn't book online, you can...

While I'm not the biggest Guinness fan (its better in Ire than in the US though) the tour is fascinating and educational. You can go at own pace or follow a guide. Worth the two hours.

We thoroughly enjoyed the Jameson Distillery tour. The guide fully described the process of making Jameson Whiskey and why they distill it 3 times. He won us over as we were formerly not much for whiskey. Jameson is much smoother than others with less burn. Was nice to participate in a taste test as well

I can't recommend the Jameson Distillery enough! Our guide (Niall) was great, very funny and informative and so enthusiastic. The tour takes you on the journey of how Jameson whiskey is made and you get a free taster at the end. There is a cafe and shop on site. A great day out, would highly recommend.
