You can go on a tour in Dublin, but this is the place with history. Our tour-guide was excellent even though this was only her second day on the job. My wife and I had a great time learning about the process of making Irish Whiskey. The information and drink at the end, makes the price reasonable.

We really enjoyed our visit - Jess was our guide and made the tour both entertaining and informative with useful explanations and little stories along the way. He was very friendly and even chatted to us about where we were staying, and suggested a few other things in our area to try while we were on holiday. The tour is... More

We did the tour with Brian. An extremely informative tour and simple. Not too long. Not too expensive and just what the doctor ordered a whiskey at the end. Visit here if you're staying in cork city or surrounding areas.

I went to the Jameson Experience in Midleton on the 8th of April 2015, it was a lovely place to visit, our guide was very friendly and clear when speaking, and made the tour really fun. The grounds of the centre are very well kept and very clean, a lovely place to take photos. I bought my tickets online at... More

This was great fun. Very interesting; a great learning experience - especially if you are a whiskey lover. Great whiskey tasting at the end; a souvenir shop that has EVERYTHING Jameson; and the best authentic Irish Coffee we had anywhere in Ireland! This was so much more fun than the Guinness tour.

The tour was great but the best part of the experience to me was the helpful and considerate staff. After having an excellent meal at the restaurant (distillery salad, definitely get it), I found myself in the embarrassing position of having both my American credit cards not work at the register. As this was the last day of my trip,... More

We both did the tour last week and it was very enjoyable. You can relax in the shop beforehand or sit in on of the chairs in the bar/lounge area. The tour was very good and answered any questions you might have, and everything was well explained and clear. It was great to see the historical distillery and old buildings.... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the tour yesterday conducted by Bernadette, who did the whole thing without notes. Excellent insight into the distilling process and comparison with Scotch Whisky production. Rounded off with a side by side comparative tasting of Irish, Scotch and American whiskey, and a sample of the excellent Jameson.
