“Awesome tour, awesome whiskey”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

We caught the last tour of the day and were met with friendly staff everywhere we turned. The tour itself was really informative and was much better than the tourist-centric ones that you might experience at Guinness and Jameson. Obviously there's some items specifically geared toward tourists (the side by side comparisons of the ages of whiskey, the different flavour and aroma profiles, etc). but the 100 degree heat that you feel when you walk through one of the rooms reminds you that this place is for real. Plus there's free whiskey at the end!

“Bushmills at it's best!”
Reviewed June 20, 2014

Haven't been back to the Bushmills Distillery in over 7 years, so it was a delight to pay another visit with friends from the USA. We were greeted by very welcoming staff and taken on an excellent your by Con. The tour was very informative and enjoyable.

“whiskey tour”
Reviewed June 19, 2014

Did the Bushmills tour which was very interesting and had a free taster at the end of tour. Our tour was at 4 pm and lasted about 40 mins. After the tour you go and get a free taster of whiskey and sit there drinking it when you are told if you.want to buy anything from the shop they shut at 5 pm.The shop is well stocked.We brought a bottle of bushmills thinking we had got it at a 'good' price only to .find at the airport it's nearly £7 cheaper!

“Worthwhile”
Reviewed June 19, 2014 via mobile

Had a lovely guide who had only just started, she was to do french tours also, but cannot remember her name. Added humour into the tour, job very well done. Tour itself was approx 40 mind, informative but not boring. I would highly recommend visiting!!

“We can always learn”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

On a tour of N Ireland and stopped in for the tour. The guide was good with a nice sense of humor . Some of the people enjoyed the food in the cafe. We took a short walk to see the area.
