    A Must Visit When In Dublin
    Loved the Jameson tour. Our guide - Colin maybe? - was animated and enthusiastic. I loved how they took us into different area to smell ingredients, hear about the history and then finally the tasting room. Generous tasting and then a choice of Jameson drinks at the end. Loved this tour and highly recommend!!!!

    So fun!
    So impressed with Jameson from the time we entered to when we exited. Classy joint! Signed up in advance for the cocktail class. We learned a lot and had fun at the same time. Great memories made thanks to Jameson.

    Team activity
    We did this as a team activity during a week of offsite meetings in Dublin. Erin was fantastic at educating the group and guiding us through a blending exercise. She was patient, informative and had great wit and humor. We had a phenomenal experience! I highly recommend any tour at Jameson!

    Secret tasting
    I did the secret tasting, I can't remember her name but she was fantastic! Knowledgeable and very entertaining. Gave a great history of Jameson and we were able to taste 4 different whiskeys, including Jameson 18 cask strength.

    Fun and interesting experience
    The tour was fun and interesting. The tour guide did a great job in making us laugh and we could also taste 3 different kinds of whiskey. At the end of the tour you get one more free whiskey.

    Fun Cocktail Class
    Loved the cocktail making class! Though the actual class part really only lasted about 40 minutes (last 20 minutes spent enjoying the last cocktail - which was made by the instructor - downstairs at the bar area). Learned a lot about Jameson, how they make their alcohol, and how to correctly use bar tools. Class had a great energy, and Paul (our instructor) was fantastic! Would recommend for a fun Dublin activity!

    Far exceeded my expectations!
    A great experience! We did the Whiskey Cocktail Making Class with Paul. He was very entertaining and extremely knowledgeable about all things Jameson. The private setting was absolutely amazing and well set up. My family and I had a wonderful time. I would put this class on the top of my list for things to do in Dublin. Definitely not to be missed!

    Cocktail Making Class
    Having done the distillery tour before, I highly recommend the Cocktail Making Class. Our group of 9, most of which had never been to Jameson before, loved it. You get much of the same history interspersed into the class as the tour but it is a much more personal experience and you get to make, and drink, a few cocktails. Win, win! Dan was our guide - he was very funny. He was a big part of why the group liked it so much. You also get a cocktail making book and have an extra hour to sit in a semi-private area of the distillery to finish your cocktails. When asked by vacationers in the future, I will suggest they do this and forgo the tour. Note that Jameson didn’t allow us to sign up for 2 tours in a single day.

    Fun and informative Cocktail Making Class
    My wife and recently visited the distillery on Bow St. We signed up for the cocktail making class. Korin was our host and was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We learned a lot and met some other nice guests during the class. The experience was great and we would do it again!

    Loved it!
    Sorcha was our tour guide and she was amazing! So knowledgeable, SO engaging, and going on a tour with her was just fun. You get to learn about the history of Jameson, understand how it’s made, and then do a tasting. At the end you get a complimentary cocktail or whiskey. We had a great time!

Highly recommend this tour! It's not too long and not too short, both educational and entertaining. We had Nial as a tour guide, he was the best tour guide we've ever had!!! They're very generous with their whiskey too so be prepared.....

Plenty of tastes and a good overview of the history of the whisky and the distillery. The process to distill Jameson is explained well by your tour guide.

Nice tour with history of Jameson and a tasting. There are no production facilities on Bow St., so felt this tour was more about marketing the brand. Nice facility and nice bar area. Also, did the tour in Middleton and it was awesome. Skip Bow St and do Middleton.

This was so much fun and interesting. We did the secret tasting, learnt so much about Jameson’s history and tasted some very expensive whiskey.
Afterwards can have a few whiskeys/cocktails in a very nicely decorated bar.

Will be back for another tour for sure!

In 2002 on our first visit to Dublin we visited a Distillery. This time we visited a show for reasons of mass-tourism understandable but not what we expected.

I took part in the 'Secret Tasting' - this was a great experience, with a solid history of Irish Whiskey and all the things Jameson's offers.

I did get the customized Distillery Bottle, so I could have something a little different when I returned home, with a story to tell.

The tasting guide was knowledgeable, with plenty of stories of course. This did not feel 'touristy' at all, but was informative and fun.
