“Great day at Jameson.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013 via mobile

I am a solo traveler staying in Cork, and one of my day trips was to the Jameson distillery in Midleton. When I got there it was fairly quiet and there was a half hour til the next tour. About 15 minutes later, a huge tour group showed up and it was basically 50 people who spoke another language.... and me. I was worried about this, feeling a bit "fish out of water", but my tour guide really made me feel included and she picked me as one of the 8 volunteers at the end to do a whiskey tasting, which was very enjoyable and a great memory to take away... also a good souvenir as they give you an "official whiskey taster" certificate if you're one of the chosen volunteers. They had shown the video to the group earlier in another language, I believe, so I got to watch the video on my own at the end of my tour, while enjoying a whiskey and ginger. It could have been disastrous but the extraordinarily nice people at Jameson made it a really nice day for me!

“my birthday trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

went here with friends for my 65th birthday treat,we all had a very interesting tour and our guide made the tour enjoyable with all her knowledge of the history of the factory.If you enjoy a whisky you will appreciate it all the more knowing how it is made.A special treat at the end of the tour is a taste of Jameson whisky if you want it.My special treat was my friends bought me a 12 year old bottle of whisky with my name on it for my birthday.so it was a memorable visit.

“Better than Dublin”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013 via mobile

This is about a 25 minute drive outside cork where we stayed. Much more to see than the one in Dublin. It's an inside /outside tour so bring a jacket.
