“The Jameson Experience is an experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

Loved it!!! The tour was full of interesting little facts, the grounds were very well maintained, the drinks at the end were awesome and the meals amazing. The gift shop was a surprise, it was well priced and we walked away with some precious little trinkets for home. Definitely worth a visit.

“If you do one tour...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

There are many drink-related tours in Ireland. This is the one to do if you want the best...many of the others are very commercial and contrived. This facility is historic and attractive...great guides who are fully versed in the history of whisky. After this, you can pass on the ones in Dublin and elsewhere. Another plus is an excellent cafeteria with home-cooked food at good prices.

“Not many Irish Places Like this Anymore”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

Went for a tour here on 28 Oct 2013 to be greeted by extremely friendly staff. Our tour guide Brian was amazing and his knowledge of the process and the history was exceptional. This tour reminded me of the Ireland of yesteryear where a warm welcome and friendly interactive tour really made our day. Even though we had our baby with us it was very easy to get around. The only problem we had was the beautiful whiskey bar where we had a sample after the tour was not opened all night because we would have stayed there. A true credit to Irish hospitality and long may it continue.

“Well worth the visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Not knowing much about the whisky process, this tour was very informative. Was great to see all the old buildings and history associated with Jameson. Tour guide was delightful and well informed. We are now drinking Jameson whisky!

“Great place to meet the natives”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

We visited the Jameson Experience when we came to Ireland on a holiday this summer. We got the train from Cork city to Midleton. We saw very little Irish people around the city but our tour guide was a bonny red-headed lass. The tour was very informative and she told us all about how whiskey is brewed. We asked her a few questions and she had no problem in answering them. She knew all about the whiskey. We got to taste the different types of whiskey in the bar afterwards. It was very yummy! The tour was well worth our time but our tour guide (Ellen I think her name was) was really the best part. WE LOVE ELLEN!!!!!!!!
