Owner description: Welcome, back! Since John Jameson's brave first steps into this building in 1780, we've been focused on his ambition to create unforgettable experiences (along with great whiskey, of course). The new look Jameson Distillery Bow St. carries on this ambition through four fully guided experiences: Bow St. Experience, The Whiskey Tasters, The Whiskey Makers, and The Whiskey Shakers - all of which have a firm focus on immersive storytelling. You'll be invited to touch, smell, and most importantly, taste Jameson in the original Bow St. Distillery buildings. An exciting part of our Whiskey Makers experience is a visit to our live Maturation Warehouse, where you'll get to taste Jameson straight from the cask. The only way to get closer to the source would be to have John Jameson guide you through the distillery himself.

Staff- outstanding even while queing to get in, very chatty and friendly. Tour wonderful, funny and very interesting. A lovely cocktail bar with yummy Irish coffee and and a delicious Jamesons and ginger at the end. I'd certainly go back and I'm not even a whiskey drinker. Great afternoon's entertainment.

This is a must do - located on Bow St. Takes about 45 minutes for the whole tour and you get a Jameson drink at the end.
Make sure you volunteer for the challenge at the end which is basically comparing Jameson with JD (sweet) and Black Label (smoky). If you choose 'correctly' you'll be awarded a certificate as a whiskey connoisseur!

Although the set up was very good, I was rather dissappointed with our visit to Jamesons. It was €13 entry on a guided tour. You start off in a cinema room where they play a short film. You are then guided through various rooms and told about the process of making Jamesons. Our guide was very good (great personality) however the tour was very rushed and you felt as if you couldn't look around and that if you did you missed the start of the commentary in the next room. The tour is also a display of the processes not actually the original factory itself (you don't get a feel for the scales).
At the end of the tour you then get a sample of Jamesons and there is a taste test for some volunteers.
Worth a visit but don't expect too much
