  • This was a must on my trip to N.I and I wasn't disappointed. I've been to many distillerys and found Bushmills very well set out. The tour guide was interesting and informative and I loved the smells!...  more »

  • The tour of Bushmill's distillery is well worth the detour if you are in the vicinity, as we were during our visit to the Giants Causway. The guide we had was knowledgeable and friendly. One downside ...  more »

  • The Old Bushmills Distillery is a worthwhile tour. Most visitors to Ireland are bound for Jameson in Dublin. If you go to Northern Ireland, you will get a much better experience at Bushmills. The whiskey is good either way! But the Old Bushmills Distillery is still operating! So you get a much different experience. The tour is great and the staff are friendly. The tasting room is quaint and they had hot toddies available, which was great for a cold rainy Irish day.
  • We did a tour on 14th June and was very impressed especially with our tour guide Amber. Every time I take a sip of my favourite tipple Black Bush I remember the excellent time that we had.
  • this is one of the best distillery tours . Also some of the best whiskies that you can get for free ! At least the sample is free.
  • Great historic tour in the centre. Well priced, the tour itself gets you feeling high from the fumes. Would recommend to everyone.
  • Very reasonable price for a short but sweet tour. Well worth a visit. Loved the drop at the end!
