Very detailed tour of the Jameson Distillery in Midleton. John Madden our guide was most insightful and the 1+ hour tour was enjoyable for our entire family (20 years of age and over). The visitors area is also a must see with lots of Jameson products. Loads of fun.

The tour starts off with the History of how the company was started and all of the challenges it went through over the years. This alone was very informative. You then walk through the entire production process and it is very informative as well as entertaining. I highly recommend this tour!

We loved this tour. Came in after a long day at the Cork Gaol and Blarney Castle. It was very well organized and super informative. The fact that the "old factory" was still in operation up until 1975 was amazing. It really drove home the feel for how the farmers delivered their products back at the turn of the last... More

The tour covers the whole process and you walk through the site. The guides are good and have deep knowledge about the distillery and the processes. Volunteer for the blind test for the best experience

Lovely, chatty tour guide... Wheelchair accessible (perhaps a little help needed if using a manual chair)... Staff offered help, and seem very obliging, so I wouldn't let that put you off!... Very informative, and great fun... The 'sampling' afterwards was very enjoyable... My friend had Jameson with Ginger Ale... Says it was delicious... I just had the ginger ale... My... More

The Jameson Experience was fantastic. It began with a short video of the history of the whiskey, and then went in to a guided tour of the grounds of the old distillery (used until 1975). The tour is in depth and informative and most importantly, it's outside, so bring a rain jacket. Towards the end your guide will ask for... More
