Full description
Set on 15 acres of lovely grounds, the Jameson Experience is both an education and a cultural experience as soon as you step through its doors. You will discover the largest pot still in the world, the Angels Share and of course, the finest of Irish whiskeys. Day time tours operate 7 days all year round, except selected dates at Christmas. The journey begins with an audiovisual presentation, followed by a guided tour through the original distillery, and culminates in the Jameson Bar with a glass of Jameson, a 3-part comparison whiskey tasting, and the chance to become a "Qualified Irish Whiskey Taster." Located just 15 minutes drive from Cork on the N25 Cork to Waterford road, tours usually last approximately 1-hour, but you can make a day of it and have a delicious lunch in the Malt House Restaurant, or browse the Distillery gift shop, where you will find exclusive Jameson gifts or a special memento of your visit. A great gift to take home is the Jameson Distillery Edition, a superb whiskey exclusively for sale at Midleton. Make it even more special by having your bottle personalized as a great gift or memento of your visit.

    From the minute we walked in the door, we were greeted by a lovely lady who made us feel at home straight away. After been shown to the lovely atmospheric bar , we relaxed and enjoyed a discounted cocktail (old fashioned) before our tour began. Only did the 75 minute tour and the time flew by with our very witty tour guide. A little bit jealous of those who paid that little bit extra for the longer tour. All in all a great tour and I'd highly recommend it. Thank you people of Jameson

    Excellent 1.5 hour tour! Stopped through on our way to Cork after the Blarney Stone. Pre-booking with Get Your Guide got us in with no wait time - very important when you're trying to do many things on little time!! Lots of information and history about Jameson. Loved walking the old distillery grounds. Tasting was great!

    Informative and impressive

    Our guide took a lot of time for us. Explained in detail and interesting details told. Again and again patiently answered all questions and spoken German in between. At the end there was a tasting and a glass of Jameson Whiskey for the entrance fee. I liked it very much.
