CALLING LAST ORDERS Sorry, but the Old Jameson Distillery will be closed...

CALLING LAST ORDERS Sorry, but the Old Jameson Distillery will be closed from September 1st - March 2017 Apologies for the inconvenience but we are building for the future. No, we're not trying to build a spaceship. Not that kind of future. But we are refurbishing the Jameson Distillery to revolutionize the distillery experience. So, as we close the doors briefly on a beloved and internationally known venue that has hosted millions of visitors and created many millions of memories. We know, what's coming will be the foundry of much more. We highly recommend visiting our second Jameson Experience at the Old Midleton Distillery in Midleton Co.Cork, only 2 hrs from Dublin and well worth a visit.

Best distillery I've been to. Great tour with a great tour guide. Can't miss if you're in Dublin. Provide generous portions of whiskey on the tour and offer great gifts to purchase in their store for any Jameson lover.

Come to this distillery even you are not a fan of wiskey like me. But it is very interesting to learn about production of wiskey and the diffrent kind of wiskeys. I was surprized about the good taste of the Jameson, even i dont drink wiskey at all else.

I went on this tour straight after visiting the Guinness Storehouse and that's the only reason it doesn't get a higher rating. The tour it's self was worth the money, informative and I'm glad I did it. You see the history of the Whiskey, how's its made and get the chance to sample whisky and get an official Jameson whiskey... More

What an excellent tour. I have been on many tours in my years. This was one of the best. Not pretentious, but down to earth. Well worth the time an small charge. Plus you get to do a tasting at the end.

Even though the distillery is closed for renovations you can still get a tasting at the hostel next door. Still worth the trip.

Very sad to learn the facility is closed for renovation. We journeyed here to visit the place and could only observe from the exterior. Quite disappointing for now but hopefully it will be nice on the next visit.

Just what you would expect on a tour of a distillery. This tiny cafe is the ideal spot for a quick cup before you move on into the park or into the city. Very friendly staff, class coffee and expertise on their coffee if you ask for it.

Disappointed that this is closed and no reopening date. Check before you schedule your outing. Out tour guide drove past the building twice before he told us about it, so be sure to confirm if it is open before you go. Products are still available in other outlets that sell whiskey. On our last night in Belfast, I ask for... More
