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 three fully guided experiences: Bow St. Experience, 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 & Whiskey Shakers experiences is a visit to our live Maturation Warehouse, where you'll get to taste Jameson straight from the barrel. The only way to get closer to the source would be to have John Jameson guide you through the distillery himself.

“Corny displays and educational tasting.”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

The old distillery has been transformed into a museum, restaurant, and bar. The tour through the museum depicts parts of the distilling process as it used to be done. Listen closely and you will hear that things are done a little differently in the new location. The museum is mostly dioramas and so/so depictions. The tour ends in the tasting room with an explanation of the differences in taste between American, Irish, and Scotch whiskeys. About eight people were chosen as tasters and asked for their opinions. This was the most interesting part. Early in the tour when they ask for volunteers, be one.

“Something to do”
Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

Took the Jameson tour. Found it to b interesting but not quite asgood as the Guinness tour. The gift shop is expensive but everything looks like good quality. I would reccommend this as something to do in Dublin.

“Great tour”
Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

Our tour was an absolute blast. Also oir tour guide Emer was the best. She knew all about everything. Also the whiskey tasting at the end finishes everything off nicely!

It is not a distillery! It WAS a distillery. don't waste your money, stick to the Guinness!! A real disappointment. I was expecting to see the whiskey being made, an experience not to be missed. instead we were walked around 7 rooms with a unenthusiastic guide, who i think was embarrassed at just how much they charge for such a disappointing experience.

First I would say that booking online is not ideal because you have to provide a date and time and when you are on holiday you do not really know when you are going exactly. The Guinness tour gave you the freedom to go whenever you liked for that remaining year which was more than ideal. The short film was, as the woman explained to us, not going to win any Oscars for sure! The rest of the tour took under half an hour and not everyone had the option to try the whiskey tasting. I still would say that I enjoyed their triple distilled whiskey but unfortunately the tour did not reach my expectations
