Busy place, guided tour was very good. some well preserved buildings. You get a taste of the whisky on the tour and then a second drink at the end of the tour.

The tour is well organized, informative and the guides are knowledgeable. The tour explains the early history of whiskey-making; you are shown the distilling process; you view the barrel warehouse and end with a 3 jigger sampling of various whiskeys. Their gift shop is interesting and well-stocked.

Finally we had time to visit the Jameson experience, and we were really happy. Great tour, organised distillery and cool story behind it. The warehouse where they store the barrels had great smell of alcohol and the whiskey comparison from 3 various country is brilliant idea to show the difference between them.

Its an informative tour round the facility rich with history of whisky and an informative tour of how the different whiskeys are prepared ending with a tasting session. You can have your dinner at the place, its good and can also buy any of the different whisky offerings before you leave. Pick up a souvenir or two on the way... More

I booked a tour online, and went there to visit (You can also book tours there, the staff is very helpful). The place was amazing! I'm not really a whiskey-fanatic, but it was still one of the best tours I've had. The old buildings are very beautiful, and the tour guides are professionals - I truly recommend! (On the same...

I enjoy information, loads of it on this tour, but it's not too taxing for a relaxing day out, interesting place, and plenty to see, lovely, friendly girl conducted the tour, and she was able to answer questions asked. And of course you get to sample the goods, My only disappointment is that you don't get to see any of... More
