Why we included this experience:

Learn how two of Ireland’s most famous exports, Jameson Whiskey, and the legendary Guinness are produced, with these involving and fun tours.

Experience description

John Jameson took over the distillery in Bow Street, Dublin, in 1780 and turned it into the world’s number-one whiskey by the early nineteenth century. Although the drink is now distilled in Cork, the old Dublin factory now serves as an excellent museum, detailing the elaborate seven-step process involved in creating this renowned spirit. Following your tour, you’ll be invited to a glass of their Signature drink, with a mixer of your choice, and the opportunity to take part in a special tasting session. There’s also excellent dining options available in the 3rd Still Restaurant on-site.

Next you’ll visit one of Dublin’s most popular attractions, the Guinness Storehouse in the heart of the brewery at St James’s Gate. Walk through the door carved in the shape of a familiar Guinness pint-glass, and discover the story behind this world-famous stout, plus the ingredients and passion that go into every pint. The informative self-guided audio tour finishes at the bar of course, where you’ll enjoy a complimentary pint of the Black Stuff and unsurpassed views of Dublin. And if the friendly atmosphere here compels, you’re welcome to stay around until closing.

Karisa

Guinness was definitely the tourist attraction. I found the exhibits to be interesting, but also felt like I was stuck in one big marketing pitch. The views from the gravity bar of the city were fantastic. I really enjoyed the Jameson tour - more intimate in a smaller group setting.

Guinness beer is not really something that I enjoy drinking but reading about its history and learning about how it is made, was very interesting. If in Dublin, you must go to the Storehouse.

Rodrigo

Our guide had a great Irish sense of humor, "as smooth as the whiskey" and made our time in Jameson awesome. We were lucky to be selected to do the final whiskey tasting and that was the cherry on top of everything. Got to know a lot better how the production process works, what gives different whiskeys their unique properties and what makes or breaks a great Irish blend. Great value for money and a good fun.
