Jameson Distillery Bow St, Dublin

4.1
#2 of 22 in Breweries in Ireland
Distillery Food & Drink
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.

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.

  • Visited the Bow St. Distillery last week while vacationing in Ireland from the US. We only participated in the basic Bow Street Experience tour, but couldn't have been more pleased with the experience. Our tour guide (Rachel, I think?) was outgoing, personable, informative, knowledgeable, witty, and energetic. My personal love of Jameson Irish whiskey is rather substantial, though prior to visiting, I hadn't educated myself on what sets Irish whiskey apart from Bourbon or Scotch, or the history of Jameson itself. Suffice it to say I learned a great deal on these topics and more during the brief tour. Also, having the opportunity to purchase a personalized bottle of a blend exclusively available for purchase at the Bow St. Distillery was an added bonus. I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone, and will certainly go return the next time I find myself trying to navigate through the streets of Dublin.
  • This tour is great!!! The guided experience was smooth and the whiskey smoother. I usually don't like harder liquor but learning about the process and being able to taste/smell a lot of different ingredients suddenly made Jameson really interesting to me. I'd recommend this over the Guinness store house tour if I was gonna choose one. The merch was also cool and the new interior was slick.
  • Enjoyed the whiskey the history and the modernness of the facility. I still like Teelings better but this one is better then Guinness. Great tour guide. I was bummed to learn it was not made in Dublin. It's distilled in Cork. So if you are traveling to Cork after Dublin...you might want to wait.
  • Great experience there, we did not take the tour because we're on a budget, but we did enjoy a glass of whiskey! Our bartender was clearly new but he did make us live a good moment, the bartender in chief however was clearly a pro, totally recommend this place. Nice decor and ambiance even in the afternoon! Prices a little bit on the expensive side.
  • If you do any whiskey distillery tour I highly recommend you do this one! No wonder Jameson is the best selling whiskey...even the tour was great!!! (we did the basic bow street tour) Very busy but you have to expect that..
