We had free tickets with our hotel booking. It was a good tour and the guide was really pleasant. A lot of the tour is outside but there are rain ponchos provided. Wheelchair and pram accessible. I had a pram and it wasn't a problem.

There were four in our group and we enjoyed the tour very much. We had a very good guide who went through the history of Jameson. The tour ends in the bar where you get to have a whisky included in the price of your visit. There are bottles to buy and our friends bought one. We usually buy our... More

The guide was engaging and funny. I learned about the differences between whisky, scotch, and whiskey. Then after the "book" knowledge we were given samples of each so we could experience the differences ourselves.

We recently embarked on the Jameson Experience in Midleton with a group of our Corporate partners and we were not disappointed. A special thank you to our guide Geoff Gould who really brought the experience to life for all of us and ensured we enjoyed the experience from start to finish. Education and entertainment in one! Certainly worth a visit.

When there with family the visit is nice. The visit is not too long explaining about how the wisky is made all what you expect. The best part is the degustation but where before they were giving you the certificate now you need to give your email and they send it to you so you print it and they pull... More

We went as a family of six and had a great time. My "little" cousin who is over 6ft lol had a great time. Even got to bottle his own whiskey to take home. For 100€ you get a certificate and put your own seal and label on the bottle. Definitely worth every penny. I wasn't a whiskey drinker but... More

This is a great tour which provides the history and shows the process of making Jameson Whiskey. We booked our tour online with a set time, but arrived early and were moved to the next tour time without any problem. The guide was very informative and answered any questions asked. The tour took about an hour and ends with a... More

Very well organized tour. About 75 minutes of so. The tour guides are excellent, very informative and friendly and ready to answer all our questions. The tour takes you from the beginning of the process (as the barley arrives from the farms) all the way through the end when ready for bottling and includes a section of the various wooden... More

We didn't do the tour, but we shopped and ate in the restaurant. Staff was very friendly and helpful! I ordered the Steak sandwich and it was fantastic!! There is only a fee if you do the distillery tour.
