The old distillery is no longer functional, but... More

The Jameson distillery tour is a fascinating insight into one of Ireland's greatest exports. Whiskey tasting at the end of the session helps you understand the nuances between different types, well worth it!

If you are anywhere near Cork, you must check the Old Distillery at Midleton out. Despite not being a Whisky or Whiskey drinker myself, I found the exhibition and tour fascinating. We took two friends there for a tour and lunch and we all agreed it really is a first class attraction and very well done. In fact, having been... More
