Old Jameson Distillery
Set in the heart of Dublin, a visit to the Old Jameson Distillery is so much more than just a tour, it is an exciting and engaging experience, guaranteed to enlighten and inspire you. At the distillery, you will relive the story of John Jameson as you drink in the history, the atmosphere and the odd sip of whiskey.
The tour experience occupies a section of the old distillery, which kept Dublin flowing with the ‘water of life’ from 1780 to 1971 until the remaining distillers moved to a new and modern distillery in Midelton Co. Cork. This attraction offers the personal touch through guided tours and whiskey masterclasses, which run every 35 minutes. They start with a short film and then, with the aid of models (not the ones you’re hoping for!) and exhibitions, explain everything you ever wanted to know about Jameson Irish whiskey from grain to glass.
At the end of the tour, all visitors are rewarded with a complimentary dram of whiskey at the Jameson Bar and partake in a comparison whiskey tasting session where you will learn how to tell the differences between Scotch, Irish, and American whiskey. The tour finishes at the exclusive gift store where people may choose to buy a personalised bottle or a memento of their visit. Dublin is a city famous for its whiskey and a visit to the Old Jameson Distillery is essential for any person looking to explore, sightsee or even just enjoy themselves and have a drink.
