Jameson Distillery Bow St, Dublin

(4.1/5 based on 5,500+ reviews on the web)
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. Jameson Distillery Bow St is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Dublin Edition.

  • A very interesting and entertaining tour. Bronagh was an amazing tour guide and she clearly did her best to make us enjoy it.  more »
  • Really worth a visit a place, you might want to participate in the presentation round, where you hear the history of the distillery, as well as to become familiar with the secrets of whisky making. In the round, you can sample different whiskeys and keep you guessing what character is all about. Finally, the "dachshund" will be offered. As well as the bar you can taste a variety of whiskey already on drinksuja or simply manufactured by whiskey distillery.

  • I'm not even that fond of whiskey, but I thoroughly enjoyed this. The guides are so good at what they do! The whiskey tasting was interesting, and the history even more so. A must-see!  more »

  • Amazing experience. I'd never had whiskey before this visit but it was so interesting to get to know how its made and see everything behind the scenes. The tasting at the end was so much fun, we got to try the whiskey combined with so many different drinks, it was very good!
  • The newly refurbished distillery looks great and there is a much larger area for tastings and drinking. The new Maker's Tour is well worth the price of admission. You can also draw your own bottle straight from a cask in the gift shop.
  • Fantastic tour in the newly refurbished centre. The guide we had was witty and informative. The tour was a good length. Topped off with a tasting session and a daily grog at the end. Well worth a visit!
  • Fantastic experience. Hilarious deadpan tour guide kept the education interesting and I have an entire new appreciation of triple distilled whiskey and how to taste it! Amazing Irish coffees available.
  • Had the Whiskey Maker experience with Christopher and enjoyed it immensely. Learned a lot about Jameson and Irish whiskey and Christopher's passion for the craft made it memorable. Will go again next time we are here!
