    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!

    Niall was an excellent tour guide and kept the entire experience engaging. The guided tour began with an explanation of the process of producing the whiskey and culminated in a wonderful comparative whiskey tasting. Great value.

So the weather may have played a part in our enjoyment.

Picture the scene:
We have prebooked a valentines weekend away in Dublin and we end up in the middle of storm Dennis. We didn't prebookany tours as we just wanted to see where the weekend would lead.

After being battered by stormes we decided to find the jameson Distillery on foot, we arrived to a small court yard that had a family of 4 having some photos taken outside of the doors, it's eemed very dark, very wet and very quiet. The family snappers a picture of us and left. At this point of the weekend I was pretty down beat, the weather was ruining out child free Weekend.

As we opened the doors it was like stepping into an advert, the place was busy, happy, cheerful, the decor was beautiful, enormous jameson bottle chandilliers hung from the ceiling with golden wood bars and large tables of people enjoying a whisky, chatting and just getting to know each other.

We went on a tasting tour that we has to wait 15mins to attend (very reasonable for not pre booking) but that's was OK as we enjoyed a little drink with the rest of the people enjoying what was on offer at the Distillery.

Having done the tour on a previous visit to the fair city of Dublin we decided we just had to return for one of their amazing irish coffees which we tried last time and they were, as before, absolutely fantastic and most welcoming on a January afternoon after walking round the zoo.
The place itself is a bit difficult to find but is clearly very popular and busy with people on the tours and visiting the bar for a drink.
Will be back for another one next time too.

The Jameson Distillery is a MUST for anyone with some time in Dublin. Its a favorite of mine because you can either take the tour, or just come in for a drink at their (super cool) bar! The drinks are big, strong & not outrageously priced. The tour itself wasn't your typical distillery tour which was refreshing! We both felt like we came away with a better knowledge of Jameson and whiskey all together. It was neat to compare Jameson to other whiskeys we drink all the time and see how they are alike and different. We felt we were getting good value for our money for both the tour, gift shop and drinks. We spent hours in the booth there drinking with friends and never once felt rushed by staff. 10/10 recommend - 100% worth it!

Had a guided tour with whiskey tasting as a family. Our tour guide Brian was wonderfully quick-witted and entertaining and made the learning even more fun. We felt as if we got a lot from the tour, despite the relatively short duration. We definitely wish it could have lasted longer, however it was an excellent tour for the price! A nice activity for the family (for those who are over 18 of course... but even children could enjoy this!). The whiskey tasting was especially educating, and left us liking Jameson whiskey more than ever. Thank you!

Worst experience ever!!!! Don’t go here! They charged tickets to our group of 25 people, and then literaly kicked us out because we asked our tour guide just to put at least a smile when talking to us. Totally unexplainable, none of us used a single impolite word. Chery on top was that they refused to give us the money back for the tickets. I assume this happened because we are Slavic???? Shame on you Jameson Distillery Bow St.

Went to the cocktail making class with my daughter, who bought this for me for Christmas, from start to finish it was a blast. The distillery is worth a visit on it's own merit. all the staff we dealt with were great and knew their stuff. There's a whiskey bar and a great buzz.
The cocktail making course was just great fun. Our teacher and host Ciarán was brilliant, he knows not just how to make a great cocktail but also how to make a disparate group of strangers gel and have fun together. Jameson, cocktails and new friends, what can possibly go wrong? A great fun experience.

Jameson distillery is a really cool, open plan building, with a large bar area in the wooden craft style. Obviously, with ongoing covid restrictions, it can't be enjoyed in the same way, but it is a great space.

We visited last autumn to do a cocktail making class, which at the time was half price. That was incredible value for what we got for it. We learned to make whiskey sours, old fashioneds and a punch in a small and safe group.

Our instructor Kieran was a good sport and really knowledgeable, and just made the whole thing great fun. I'd love to go back in the future and try a different tour experience, or just enjoy the bar.

My father and I did the secret tastings tour and really enjoyed our visit. Our guide was quite passionate about whisky and did a great job walking us through the barrel process. It was professionally done and we thought the tour was worth the money (even though we didn’t care for all of the whiskys on offer). Just be careful when arriving at the facility - we were hassled by a drug addict outside of the complex who would not leave us alone, and our taxi driver also warned us about the neighborhood.

Jameson's whiskey is triple distilled, it is smooth as silk. When you visit the distilery, you will do a comparison tasting with whiskey from othe countries, see what you prefer. Irish whiskey is going through a boom, but it is still good value. You can visit the site of the old distilery in Dublin, but the actual distilery iss now in County Cork.
