You can follow the fascinating craft of whiskey making through the different stages from grain intake to malting, mashing, fermentation, distillation, maturation and bottling. Finally, the tour culminates in the bar for a traditional complimentary Irish whiskey tasting session (Note: not all visitors will participate in the tasting session, but all visitors will receive a glass of Irish whiskey). The Old Jameson Distillery is located in Smithfield village in the heart of Dublin.
The journey begins with an audio visual presentation followed by a guided whiskey tour through the recreated distillery scene and culminates in the Jameson Discovery Bar with a complimentary glass of Jameson and mixer plus a chance for selected volunteers to become a “Qualified Irish Whiskey Taster”. So why not take the Jameson Distillery Dublin Tour Today!

Our guides are keen to make your day interesting and informative, each adding their own humour to the mix ( you’re on holiday as well, after all). We will tell you all about the Irish countryside, history and folklore, while you can just sit back and enjoy the view. No guidebooks needed on this trip! On the way, we visit St. Peter’s Church in Drogheda, famous for the embalmed head of St. Oliver Plunkett , Monasterboice – an early Christian site with some of the country’s best high crosses, as well as the Proleek Dolmen- a megalithic portal tomb, before we even get to Belfast.
In Belfast City, there are a myriad of things to do. You first will have time to do your own thing, and maybe change some money to Pound Stirling, as you are in the United Kingdom now. Then we do a political/ historical guided tour of the city, which includes the Falls and Shankill roads which are traditionally the political hotspots, pay a visit to the moorings dock and site where the Titanic was built, and then finally visit the Republican Museum, before we head back to Dublin. Your tour thus includes the pre-history, Middle Age, and contemporary history periods-Phew!
