    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!

    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.

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.

Aishling was a very fun & informative tour guide. The Jameson distillery tour is state of the art, with great audio, visual, and decor. We truly enjoyed it. The bar at the end is very inviting, open, and our complimentary drink at the end topped off our whiskey tasting shots quite nicely!

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.

Me & my partner had planned to visit the Jameson distillery before we arrived in Dublin and were really looking forward to it - and we had a great afternoon!

Very informative tour guide, great to hear about the history of the Jameson family and how everything began and progressed throughout the years. Throughout the tour we got to learn about how Jameson is produced, the process and of course some fantastic whiskey tasting at the end of the tour. It was something we both really enjoyed doing as a couple and would 100% recommend on your first visit to Dublin. Included in the price was a delicious drink (choice of 3 various drinks) at the grog bar - I chose the whiskey, ginger beer & lime and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Great venue and very nice decor, lots to look at whilst you are in the venue and lots of character. The only thing I would say is that the gift shop is rather on the expensive side which did put us off buying anything, but thoroughly enjoyed our couple of hours there.

Signed up for a whiskey and chocolate tasting experience here. It was quite expensive but we decided to splurge like we were rich people and im happy to say it was well worth the money ! The speciality chocolates made by the local chocolatier to pair specifically with the whiskeys we tasted were delicious. The whiskeys we tried were all so smooth and it was pretty cool trying some of these very expensive/premium whiskeys. I am not a drink hard liquor straight kind of person but I had zero problem finishing off the whiskeys. We also were able to pull whiskey from one of the production barrels which is part of a blend they only release once a year at the storehouse and it was so cool to do and try. Our experience guide was very knowledgable, relaxed and was passionate about what he was doing and the information that he was sharing. I’m so bad with names but a shoutout to him from the 12/9/23 experience at 17:15. Best of all the tasting was held in their barrel production room which was kind of amazing to experience the tasting in. Of course the good whiskey put us all in a good mood and the atmosphere was comfortable enough to laugh and have fun with the 6 other people in our group and our tasting leader kept the atmosphere fun and light. This was definitely a highlight of our trip to Dublin and if you’re feeling high end/bougie and you want to do something that feels special, it’s definitely worth dropping the extra cash for. The whiskey cocktails we had at the decked out Christmas bar were also outstanding. There seems to be quite a few different tour experiences and tasting things here, the one we did was definitely worth it and one of the highlights of our trip.

So, we took this tour first thing in the morning (10am), and it was therefore also the first tour of the morning. The first few minutes we were just wandering around near the starting point when they made sure that all who were coming had arrived and then our guide Beyonce (just kidding! Our guide was Rhianna) collected us together and took us to the first room. The table worked as a video screen - only it did no work and after several tries Rhianna took us to alternative room and after two tries there we got started. She took it all with grace and good humour and our experience was in no way hindered by the initial porblems. The tour lasted about 45 minutes ending with a whiskey tasting. We tried three different whiskeys by Jameson and Rhianna explained them and answered our questions. It was a very enjoyable experience and once the tour was over we could stay in the bar for a spell and enjoy our grog. Now, I must point out that Jameson's is no longer an active distillery, so if that is what you want to see, there are working distilleries in Dublin, too, but this was a good tour, good lesson in history and the lenght was about just right.
