The tour featured a lot of history as well as detailed description of the distillation process. Very informative and the guides were knowledgable and pleasant. Of course the highlight was the tasting at the end. There is also a nice gift shop.

Very organized and nice tour! I'm not a whiskey drinker but others with me were. Took quick city bus from Cork and tour lasted about 1 1/2 hours. Almost missed the bus back so just be sure to know when the last bus comes!

Great insight into the making of Jameson whiskey. From history to barrel making to aging and bottling. The tasting section was a nice touch!

There is a cafe in the distillery. They serve Fish and Chips, but I can't say it's the best I've had. From what I could tell, they close the cafe around 3 pm, so if you're tour is later, you might want to eat in town. There... More

I'd agree with all the other answers. I'd also like to point out that bored children on the tour would be a distraction for the rest of the tour group. At another distillery that I toured recently, there were a dozen adults... More
