    It's definitely a MUST see! I was not able to catch a tour because they were all sold out around St. Patrick's Day BUT I just sat at the bar, did the tasting and enjoyed a few whiskey cocktails. GREAT

    The tour covers the basics of whiskey distilling. Tip: stand near the front of the group and act quickly when the guide asks for volunteers -- you’ll be treated to an extended tasting at the end. Read more

    Take the tour and volunteer to taste and compare Jameson to a Scotch and an American whiskey. Definitely try the Jameson whiskey flight and grab a bottle of the distillery reserve while you're here.

    One of the "must to do" when you are in Dublin! The best part of this attraction is testing part! Don't be shy you can volunteer to be whiskey taster and you'll get great price!

    I expected less from this ended up quite nicely surprised. Great tour, cool history lesson and some sampling! Book in advance over internet if you can to avoid not getting the ticket.

    Book tickets for the tour online in advance, or expect to kill several hours in the Jameson pubs waiting. Though admittedly, the three Jameson pubs onsite had excellent drinks.
  • Melissa D.
    Buy a bottle of the distillery reserve (you can't get it anywhere else in the world!) and if you want, get your name added to the label! 😊

    A good insight into the Jameson whiskey making process. Make sure you ask to be a taster straight after the video presentation. Food is also very good and reasonably priced if you're hungry.

    If you're a fan of Jameson, it's worth going in for seeing the production process and buying some selected varieties, but if you're not a fan, you might wanna consider other options

    The tour is really nice, but the whiskey tasting is the best part. There's an amazing whiskey chocolate on the store that is worth buying.

    Volunteer at the VERY BEGINNING! Totally worth it at the end, trust me:) Also, don't blow off the gift shop as any other money-sucker. They have really cool merchandise reasonably priced!

    Great place. You will learn everything about the Jameson whisky and get a certificate at the end. Well worth the entrance.

    The tour was just ok. Good tip though is to raise your hand at the beginning of the tour you'll be selected to be a whiskey taster. Also buy the Jameson Distillery Reserve. It can only be found there.
  • David M.
    Kevin was a great host. Really enjoyed the tour and tasting at the end. Also good cocktail options at the bar. Didn't try the restaurant but maybe worth exploring.

    The tour is questionable. Feel free to enter in the foyer for some nice hot whiskey or some proper Irish coffee.

    The tour was very well rehearsed and a bit stilted, when I would have preferred more free form. Still quite informative.

    They show Jameson's history and let you taste and compare their best whiskey with other famous brands. Really good

    Although they may tell you it's a 45-minute wait for the next tour, you can buy your tickets then just wait in the bar drinking a cocktail or three.

    Good ol' Jameson... For a real distillery experience just visit Scotland. This place is unique with its pub atmosphere and various Jamison variants

    A very basic, but informative, tour with a fun guide. And then comes the whiskey tasting!
  • Knut-Olav H.
    Nice guide, but the tasting was a but too commercial. Hoped to taste the other Jamesons whiskeys, but the other tastings were Johnny Walker Black Label and Jack Daniels no7

    Lame tour, especially for €18 or whatever it was. Skip it in favor of just drinking at the bar, which is delightful.

    Definitely raise your hand to be a volunteer at the beginning of the tour. You'll get to sample three different whiskeys at the end.

    Been here 5+ times
    A tour of the Old Jameson Distillery can tell all you need to know about everything else. You can explore the history and find out about the legend that is John Jameson.

    TRAVEL TIP: Skip the tour and head straight to the bar! The whiskey tasting is the best part.

    The cocktails at the end are alright, but you're better going to the Irish Whiskey Museum for background and tasting the differences.

    Get here early. The tickets are always sold out which says that they should offer more tickets up.

    The tickets are pretty, but that's about all I can say. The tour was lacklustre, and the guide was clearly just punching his card.

    Irish coffees are unreal here. Get it into you. Also get the distillery reserve bottle which can be customised to have your name on it. Very cool
