What a great experience and our tour guide was great! Personable, funny and informative! My husband and son are the whiskey drinkers but for me and my daughters, we found the tour and experience very interesting! Highly recommend this tour. Group was small and manageable, didn't feel like we couldn't hear and we all had an opportunity to ask questions.... More

The tour and tasting itself is pretty good and worth the money. After researching both of Jameson's tour locations (Middleton and Dublin), I picked this one. Although I recognize that Dublin was the original home of the distillers, I didn't want to do another 'Heineken Experience'-- a place that 'used to' make alcohol but is now just a glorified museum....

We had a terrific tour guide - Brian - he was great at his job and we enjoyed the tour so much....he even wished our baby girl a big happy 1st birthday. All other staff were very friendly and welcoming and it was very interesting to hear how whiskey is made - I don't even drink whiskey!

We missed the Jameson Distillery in Dublin but after visiting the Experience in Midleton we found out the Real distillery was here and they just bottle in Dublin. Small group tours make this interesting and informative and for those first few to volunteer there is a tasting at the end of the tour!

this was a very interesting experience well worth the 15 Euro spent. A tour of about 1h515 with good tasting opportunities and a whiskey at the end. Great to hear about how Jameson developed over time

I don't drink scotch or Irish Whiskey, but I love it. I was excited to try the Jameson Experience. It did not disappoint. The guide was excellent. I would highly recommend a stop here if you are in Midleton. It's great fun and very interesting. You get a full size drink at the end, which was quite good.

I went to the Jameson Experience yesterday with my boyfriend. It took about an hour and a half. It was very good, I would highly recommend it. The girl who showed us around was so nice, I can't remember her name though. You get a free drink at the end and we got to taste different types of whiskey too.... More

While traveling across Ireland, well drinking my way across Ireland I should say. We stopped at the Jameson distillery. It is a great stop and a great tour. The history behind the drink and the old buildings is amazing. In the gift shop you can have a bottle made there and a label with your name on it. Only lace... More
