My husband and I have a love for Jameson, so much so that we have a special bottle that we only have a drink out of on our wedding anniversary (we had the first shot a year before our wedding and guests at our rehearsal dinner signed the bottle). The tour was part of the reason we started our initial... More

On this tour you get to see behind the scenes on how whiskey is made. They explain it very nicely and understandable for people who have no experience at all in this area. At the end of the tour you get to choose a whiskey drink (tip for the ladies: get the cocktail - it is pretty good!). The tour... More

Me and my girlfriend did the behind the scenes tour with Tom and it was a delightful experiences. Our guide really knew his stuff and you get to see many of the things you would miss on the regular tour. The whiskies we sampled were awesome, well worth it.

I brought my boyfriend to Ireland because he loves Guinness and Jameson. We visited the Guinness storehouse while in Dublin, but we saved the Jameson tour for the last leg of our trip in Cork. It was a little tricky to find the distillery, it was well marked on signs on the highway, but once you get into Midleton it's... More

Went to Jameson distillery on our way to Cork. It is easy to find. Straight road from Cork. We had lunch there as well as had arrangements to meet up with friends. Recommend the warm chicken salad and the chicken skewer. Both dishes to die for. You should take the tour and try the whiskeys. All lovely. Highly recommend this... More

Great tour lead by knowledgeable guide, and a good mix of info about the historic and new practices in whiskey making. A lot more to see than their Dublin location. The tasting at the end is a good bonus!

Pretty great tour of the old distillery. You walk through the past seeing what would have been done and the old equipment. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and very pleasant. The drink at the end was a perfect way to end!

I had no idea why Irish and Scotch whiskey was so different, much less why American Bourbon differed at all, until I did this tour. I will leave the' Aha' moment to you all until you do the tour. It comes early and I suggest when they ask for 'tasters' at the end you stick your hand up. It is... More

We enjoyed our time at the Jameson Experience. The guide was interesting and made the tour very enjoyable! The price was 16euro, this included whiskey tasting and a whiskey cocktail! We loved it! It's really easy to get to too, from Cork City it's about 30 minutes on a local bus.
