  • This was such a fantastic tour! Not one time did I feel overwhelmed with other tourists walking around aimlessly. The staff here does such a great job keeping each group on it's own tour! It was very easy to get pictures and we even had time to ask questions.
  • Probably could have been timed better as we were the first guided tour of the day at 10am. Bright and early so no crowds. Claire did well to enthuse her group from all round the world. She engaged people well to participate and gave her own perspectives as well. Definitely not a dry historical talk. Not the best time for whisky tasting though in the AM - but as I was still in a different time zone, I managed OK. Beware that the staff obviously work in a distillery that has a considerable output, and the pours can be rather generous (not a complaint). Towards mid-day the crowds definitely picked up and there were people everywhere. It depends on whether you like the atmosphere, or want to see the exhibits unmolested.
  • Very interesting tour. The guides even try to make jokes and get people to participate. They really know their stuff. You get to taste some whiskey at the end of the tour in the bar where you can stay a little while if you like. The only downfall is the gift shop is so expensive. Otherwise we loved it. Great experience over all.
  • Amazing experience for any whiskey lover. The experience tour itself takes you through the incredible history of the brand as well as the various distillation processes. It really is an experience. The premium whiskey tasting is amazing, and really showcases the variety that whiskey can offer through the varying levels of distillation and maturation. I left with a grin from ear to ear :)
  • Great visitor attraction. Learned a great deal here about Irish whiskey and the Jameson brand. Friendly staff and our tour guide was very interactive and knowledgeable. Would recommend this to anyone who is staying in the area, including Cork City. 10 minute walk from Midleton station, but enjoyable to see the town en route.
