Was wondering if this was going to be worth the time but it most definitely was! Our guide was so very friendly and informative. she answered every question with a happy and helpful attitude. There are some rooms on the tour that are quite warm but you aren't there for very long! Although we did not eat here the food looked good and the whiskey was delicious! Would I go,again? Oh yes!!

Since Bushmills is the oldest licensed distillery in the world they have had time since 1608 to perfect their trade. It is fascinating on the tour to see the whole process of making Irish Whiskey and the even give you an opportunity to taste some of their varieties. It is well worth the stop along the Antrim Coast to take in the tour.

One of the highlights of my time in Northern Ireland! I loved walking through a functioning distillery - be prepared that certain areas are quite warm! I loved seeing the bottling process and sampling different whiskey varieties at the bar. The gift shop is great - you can get a Distillery Reserve bottle of 12 year old Bushmills to bring home - makes a great gift, you can even personalize the bottle! If you want to indulge (and don't need to drive!) do the VIP taste testing - such a treat! Also, the food in the cafeteria is quite nice and priced well!

Went for the trip just on the cusp of the silent season, even with this in mind it was excellent.
The guide was very informative and had a lot of knowledge about the process.
Plus a little dram at the end was a nice ending! Well worth the trip, throughly enjoyable!
