Owner description: Since John Jameson's brave first steps into this building in 1780, we've been focused on his ambition to create unforgettable experiences (along with great whiskey, of course). The new look Jameson Distillery Bow St. carries on this ambition through five fully guided experiences: Bow St. Experience Distillery Tour, Premium Whiskey Tasting, Whiskey Blending Class, Whiskey Cocktail Making Class, and a Cask Draw Experience in Dublin's only Live Maturation Warehouse - all of which have a firm focus on immersive storytelling. You'll be invited to touch, smell, and most importantly, taste Jameson in the original Bow St. Distillery buildings. The only way to get closer to the source would be to have John Jameson guide you through the distillery himself.

Loved it! The bar as you enter is brilliant, lovely look and feel. The tour was great, you hear the history and science behind Jameson's and come out loving the brand.

At the end you do some tasting then get a free drink at the bar. Despite hating Whiskey I discovered I love Jameson's with Ginger Ale. You also get a Whiskey Taster Certificate!

Worth the 20 Euros and highly recommended.

Enjoyed the tour at Jameson, our tour guide was great and very informative. Worth a visit and food price for the amount of drinks you get.

A very informative tour that tells the story of Irish Whiskey and its ups and downs. This is purely a tourist attraction but is very good. Off season there is no shortage of Whiskey to sample. I hear it is different in the peak times when only a few people get to try the tasting. This consists of sampling Irish, Scottish and Kentucky Whiskey. At the end of the tour you get another shot of Jameson plus a lovely cocktail

Hey Barry G thanks so much for your feedback and we're delighted you enjoyed your tour. All guests at off and on peak seasons get to take part on the comparative tasting and get their measure of Daily Grog at the end of the tour. We're all about inclusion here in Bow St. Thanks, Jameson Distillery Bow St. Team

The Jameson Distillery tour at Bow Street runs like a well oiled machine; they have perfected an interesting way to take you through the whisky making process - it is informative, fun and well done!

Sine Metu, Without Fear, is the family motto that serves as inspiration and it is very much a part of their approach to business and also appears on every bottle of Jameson Whisky!

Book your tour online (to avoid the massive lines) and pre-order a personalized bottle of Jameson as a gift for someone special or just as a memento of your visit! A definite must do when you visit Dublin!

We did this tour after the Guinness tour and found it much more interesting. For one, you actually get a tour guide to show you around, talk you through things and answer any questions you have.

The only issue we had on our tour was some woman from Las Vegas with her husband who were there for his birthday.
She took a call during the presentations that the tour guide was doing and it was hugely distracting for everyone.
Even the baby that was on the tour wasn’t as bad.
