  • We took the tour and tasting here with our 4 year old. The tour moved us around all the different old buildings where the whiskey was distilled at one time. It was quick so as not to bore my daughter....  more

  • Tour guide didn’t engage with the group, she just recited her speech. Never asked if anyone had a question. The group was caught in a deluge. The guide couldn’t wait 5 minutes for the rain to ease...

  • This place is brilliant if you have any sort of interest in Whiskey. The tours here are great we where luck enough to do the two hour one and what you get from the price it's well worth it. The time flies when doing the tour they have so much to show you and tell you about the iconic Distillery. The gift shop and bar is definitely worth taking a look too they have a fantastic selection of stuff to try and take home with you. I've done both Distillery locations Cork and Dublin and Cork is great if you ever get the opportunity to visit. If you are in Dublin the Teelings tour I found better it is a wonderful working Distillery you really get the feel for how the Whiskey is made. The tour with did in Cork isn't even in a working Distillery but you get to see the History of Whiskey.
  • Great place to visit. Tour was very interesting and informative. Amazing look at old machinery still in working condition. Premium tasting experience worth the extra cost. Very popular so parking is at a premium while renovations are taking place so get there early.
  • I've been to the distillery in Dublin and they are very different but both amazing experiences. The tour guide was knowledgeable and passionate ( shout out to Bart!) He also helped us hire a taxi. I would recommend the tour plus tasting package. It costs around 48 euro per person and you most certainly get your monies worth. Make sure you have a ride home because you most likely will be drunk leaving. The gift store has redbreast, green spot, midleton very rare, and jameson. They have different varieties of each of those brands. They have a food truck on the premises for a quick bite and it was pretty tasty. My fiance and I had such a nice time and would love to go back with some family members soon.
  • Don't waste your time. There are friendlier people and better distilleries in Ireland. We drove almost 2 hours and arrived 20+ minutes before the 11 am tour. When we arrived their system was down and they couldn't schedule or add anyone to the tour. Not a problem, technology fails at times. Surely they could work around it? WRONG! We asked if we could pay cash and they said, "No, we can't even open our tills." So, no offer of "Hey, it is $25/person and you can pay us $50 now and if the system is working when you get out we'll add the taxes!" Nope, they simply told us to wait around until 12 pm and MAYBE their system would be up and they could get us on that tour. We looked around the store and my wife asked one of the workers about a whisky that wasn't smoky/peaty. The worker mouthed off "That is scotch!" and walked away. For some reason the CC machine in the bar worked and we were able to purchase a flight. That was the most expensive 3 samples ever. I have never received a stingier pour than what they offered. We had flights in several locations in Ireland (not to mention flights in other places) and never were they as tiny as what Jameson's provided. We had planned on buying a couple of bottles, but after this we just left. BTW, there shop prices are higher than the local stores, so if you go and find one you like just remember the name and buy it elsewhere. Again, they don't seem to care about the customer and the time we wasted. You would think a 'tourist' location would understand people are on schedules and waiting around for their system to 'possibly' come back on line is not an option. Just skip Jameson's and tour the numerous other distilleries in Ireland. Pictures are just to prove we were there.
  • Wonderful experience with the tour around the old distil, the tour guide was very nice and the final tasting packed a strong punch 😁, in the free drink I've tried the coktail with Jameson, ginger ale and lime, definitely recommend it 😉. Overall a very good experience 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
