Jameson Distillery Bow St., Dublin

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 .

  • Cute and small tour. However felt its pretty expensive for what you get. The guide was fantastic and told the story really nicely alongside the interactive board. You then continue to a hands on experience and try different whiskeys. The staff was great, but it gets busy quickly of course. Better to visit during the week in the off season.
  • This is a great tour, if you like the whiskey then this is the perfect tour for you. You learn about the history of Jameson and the way they make their whiskey. It was about 45 minutes for the whole tour and it had 3 different stages to the tour. The first stage was the talking about how it all got started and when they expanded and all the history behind it. The second stage was talking us all through the brewery process and what goes into it all. The third and final stage was the tasting which we got to taste the famous Jameson along side other whiskeys and compared them. Overall a great tour which I enjoyed a lot
  • Interesting tour, with a tasting at the end - and your choice of a neat whisky or cocktail too. The tour was slightly different to last time we did it - it only takes part in 2 rooms (so not a distillery tour as much), it's more like a talk through the process and ingredients. Our guide Matthew was very knowledgeable. Would recommend to anyone visiting Dublin.
  • I'm going to start off by saying that I am not the biggest Jameson fan (sorry). I did enjoy the tour of the distillery and feel like I need to give it a second chance though. The amount of technology in the tour was amazing. Our guide was helped by interactive screens that showed the history and processes involving Jameson. It was a fun time and the free drink at the end was a nice touch.
  • Fun little tour with an entertaining guide. Jameson really outdid themselves with the high-quality, interactive visual presentation as well as the hands-on “lab” experience to get an intimate look at the ingredients. I found the whiskey comparisons to be eye-opening and the best part, of course, is the generous tasting size at the end of the tour. We took advantage of the opportunity to pour our own whiskey from the barrel and affix our own label to the bottle. Absolute blast and a fun way to enhance the Jameson experience.
