This place is a must-see if you like Irish Whiskey and are visiting the area. You get a very comprehensive tour for the price, the tour guide we got was very knowledgable and wryly funny. She kept everything on track, even interrupting people that were not paying attention so their conversation did not interfere with what she was trying to tell the group. Now when my wife and I have a Bushmills we'll always think of this place. The food at the cafe was very good also, affordable and hearty.

I was passing through Bushmills village many times, but last week i thought I will stop and take a distillery tour. That was great decision. Tour guide was very informative. It took us about 45 minutes. We went through all production levels finishing in a whiskey bar for Bushmills tasting. Nice treat for the end of the tour.

Tickets were 7,50 Pounds. Well worth of it. Bushmills Distillery is also only one place in the world where you can buy 12 years old Bushmills Whiskey. You can also personalize the bottle to make it more special. A must visit place when passing by.

Have to say that I have been to Guinness and Heineken Brewery and maybe not as interactive but Bushmills tour is far more informative. I learned a lot about Whiskey. Just perfect!

The tour was very informative, unlike some tours you actually see the real thing. The tour takes you through the process from start to finish. The tour lasts approximately 40 mins, and at the end you finish in the bar to taste the whiskey ( note the spelling different than the Scottish whisky) food is available at a cost. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable.

The distillery tour was great. The complete process and history of single Malt Irish Whiskey was shown and discussed. The distillery was in full operation when the tour occured. At the end of the tour samples were available and there was a nice gift shop including some offerings not available elsewhere.
