The Jameson Experience was fantastic. It began with a short video of the history of the whiskey, and then went in to a guided tour of the grounds of the old distillery (used until 1975). The tour is in depth and informative and most importantly, it's outside, so bring a rain jacket. Towards the end your guide will ask for... More

I am so glad we found this place while touring Ireland. We were disappointed that we could not visit the Jameson facility in Dublin due to being closed for remodeling. When we read about this place we decided we need to check it out. It turns out that this is the place that they make the whiskey and not Dublin,... More

This one was a major bucket list check. The tour was very informative and the guide was very knowledgeable. We did some sampling at the end and now my wife likes whiskey.

Really enjoyed the tour and experience. As some have said, quite a generic tour without deeply knowledgeable guide (at least on the day I did it) but was completely sufficient for me and my party. Some good opportunities to taste / drink / smell. Well worth it while in the area.

Took a US relative here albeit I have been here a few times. This is a first class experience in terms of how whiskey is (properly) distilled!. The tour winds its way through the older part of the distillery and charts the history and production of this wonderful elixir. I would encourage anybody who is in the locality either local... More

We toured and loved it. Also the restaurant was very good. Turkey and ham along with soup. The tour was informative and tasting is amazing. Whiskey was totally worth it.

We started off with a light lunch in the cafe which was delicious. The tour takes around an hour and you walk around the old distillery in addition to seeing a working micro innovation distillery which has been recently opened to the public. Informative and interesting guide and we finished with a whiskey tasting and hot toddy which makes the... More
