Jameson Distillery Bow St, Dublin

4.2
Have some history with your Irish coffee at Jameson Distillery Bow St, which provides guided tours and tutored tastings of its best-selling whiskey. The distillery closed for business in 1971 and the building now houses a visitor center and bar, located right above the original fermentation vats, which you can still see through the glass floor of the atrium. Guided tours explain the history of Irish whiskey through a series of reconstructed scenes from the old distillery, as well as through several exhibit areas displaying all of the main stages of traditional whiskeymaking. If the tour's complimentary glass just doesn't hit the spot, drop by the second-floor restaurant, where you can take the next drink with a gourmet meal. Make Jameson Distillery Bow St a centerpiece of your Dublin vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Dublin online vacation planner .

  • Great tour that fits perfectly into your Dublin day out. It's about 45 minutes which is good when you want to pack a lot in to your day. It was interesting to hear the back story of the Jameson brand with great visual aids and the expert storytelling from the guide. Our guide on the day was Eoghan (or Owen) who added entertainment value to the visit with his pure Irish Charm. The setting, on Bow Street, was really cool and had a good vibe - the free drink in with the price of admission whilst sat in the bar added to the experience. The free drink plus a sampling session at the end was definitely worth the €20 price tag for the 'basic tour'.
  • Very interactive and enjoyable tour! Eoin was our tour guide and he made the tour both entertaining and informative. The distillery is no longer active on Bow Street; it is now a bar (with a multitude of featured Jameson cocktails) and a museum/tour location. They've clearly put thought and care into making this tour worthwhile given that Jameson is no longer distilled on the premises. It's worth the 20 Euro price. This includes a free drink (a choice of three specified cocktails) and a generous Jameson, Scotch, and American whiskey comparison tasting at the end of the tour.
  • Standard tour made better by tour guide! First off - I'm a teetotaler. I don't drink, but love the science behind making whiskey/beer/other drinks, so thought I check this tour out while waiting to head to Guinness Storehouse. I have to admit this tour was FAR BETTER than the Guinness tour. From the opening movie, to the taste taste at the end - this was enjoyable every minute. And I have to say this was all because of Niall, our tour guide. He was awesome! Recommend this over the Guinness Storehouse tour, though both are a must when visiting Dublin. But if you only have time for one - go with The Old Jameson Distillery tour
  • Quite possibly the best €18 I've spent so far. They gave me Johnny walker, Jack Daniels, then if courses Jameson's and that was during the tour, after the tour they let you settle all that down with a tall glass of Jameson and ginger ale to put a spin on your morning. The tour guide was very knowledgeable, friendly, polite, and funny. I'd definitely recommend, even at the regular price of €20. I just happen to get 10% off but I would've paid the €20.
  • Well worth a visit, personally enjoyed it more than the other more obvious tour in the area. The bar area when you first wall in is beautiful particularly the beams that you walk under as you enter. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and all the staff seemed to enjoy their work. The history of Jameson's is interesting and well told. The tasting section is great although I preferred the Scotch. It's a shame the isn't more of the original distillery left but still well worth a visit.
