Welcome, back! Since John Jameson's brave first steps into this building in...

Welcome, back! 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 three fully guided experiences: Bow St. Experience, The Whiskey Makers, and The Whiskey Shakers - 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. An exciting part of our Whiskey Makers & Whiskey Shakers experiences is a visit to our live Maturation Warehouse, where you'll get to taste Jameson straight from the barrel. The only way to get closer to the source would be to have John Jameson guide you through the distillery himself.

I think this is a new 'experience' at Jameson and what a fantastic addition! Our guide Mathew was wonderful....told us the history of Whiskey in Ireland and of course the whole Jameson story. We then learned how its made and how the different flavours are derived. This was done by sampling some very fine whiskeys...along with dark chocolate (who would... More

We loved the tour. It was very modernized and Rachel, our tour guide, was exceptionally knowledgeable and friendly. This was my first time in Ireland and as a big fan of Jameson, I was hyping up this experience and I think I got more than I expected. We learned about why Jameson has the taste that it has, it's rich... More

We stopped here with our son and daughter-in-law, took the tour and had a generally great time. The tour itself was very interesting, the bar area was very cool with the glass floor and being able to see the excavated original foundation of the distillery. The gift shop was well stocked, the bartenders were great and the whiskey top notch!... More

On our recent trip to Dublin, my wife and I decided to pay a visit to the Jameson Distillery. It was our first experience at such an establishment and decided to try an Irish Whiskey tasting. Our server, James, patiently explained the differences between the different whiskeys, how they were distilled, and what gave each sample its unique taste. Although... More

The hop on-hop off bus stops in front of the destillery. It's very nice to see how whiskey was made. At the end of the tour you must taste 3 kinds of different kinds of whiskey and of course Jameson is the best. The destillery doesn't work in Dublin. All the activities of the destillery are in a little town... More

€18 per person for a guided tour of the distillery, newly renovated throughout! The guide was fantastic, he came across as very passionate about his role and the history industry. The tour is very visual and easy to follow at every stage. You get to sample and compare the whisky and also a choice of drink at the bar with... More
