Jameson Distillery Bow St, Dublin

4.1
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 .

  • Despite not liking the whisky is a visit that I have enjoyed as a dwarf. David was the person who made us the tour and explained to us how everything. It fascinated me and charm, and I have to say that he would return. Still I like whiskey but yesterday I started to appreciate a little more.

  • Visited the old Jameson distillery on a tour around Dublin. The tour was well thought out and underlaid with great multimedia effects. All in all though it seemed like a big Jameson advertisment (whic...  more »

  • A fantastic tour. One can’t help but compare it to the more popular tour of the Guinness Storehouse - this one tends to be more interactive and a lot less crowded, which was nice. Whiskey is just not going to agree with everyone though like beer does. I thought there was a chance that I might be a little bit more interested in drinking whiskey after taking this tour, but I guess its just not for me. Make sure that you buy your tickets online as the tours go every 15 minutes. The tour guide that we had was absolutely great!
  • My boyfriend and I did the whiskey makers premium tour and it was totally worth the 60€. We had Chris as our "tour guide" on the matter and he was AWESOME. You got to taste 4 different types of Jameson, blend your own whiskey, and take a taste directly from a barrel....all while hearing the background behind Jameson. I definitely recommend doing this version of the tour when going to the distillery. Ask for Chris!!!!
  • Really great tour. Overall experience was better than expected. Did the Guinness tour earlier in the day and this was the better tour. The tasting was great. You get a few small tastes of whiskey and scotch followed by a full drink included in the price of the €20 tour. It’s a good one.
  • If you're not a big fan of Jameson, you will be after the tour! You get an amazing free drink while you wait, the tour guide was a real pro who had a lot of fun doing his job. Afterwards we had another cocktail made by one of the barman, also people who know what they're doing and that love their job.
  • A brand experience like the Guinness Storehouse rather than a tour of a production facility, better though than the Guinness experience as guide led rather than self guided and somewhat cheaper. A fairly interesting history of Irish whiskey in general and Jameson in particular with regular emphasis about why they they think their whiskey is better than others, especially blended scotch. Especially enjoyed the guide's tangent on the subject of "My Lovely Horse"

Where to stay in Dublin

Dublin offers everything from luxury hotels to eclectic guesthouses. Explore over 1,000 years of history in the city on foot by staying at one of the hotels or hostels in the city center. The south side of the river has always been a popular place to stay, particularly near Temple University or the tourist nightlife center Temple Bar, but a new crop of attractive options has popped up on the north side as well. For more affordable accommodations, try a hostel or make your way toward St. Stephen's Green for a more comfortable stay at a mid-range hotel. If the artistic spirit of Dublin is what beckoned you, spend your holiday in a guesthouse near the creative Lower Gardiner Street.
