Cork: Jameson Experience Whiskey Tour

1. Cork: Jameson Experience Whiskey Tour

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. Daytime tours operate 7 days all year round, except selected dates at Christmas. The journey begins with an audiovisual presentation, followed by a 1-hour guided tour through the original distillery. Your experience ends at the Jameson Bar with a glass of Jameson, a 3-part comparison whiskey tasting, and the chance to become a "Qualified Irish Whiskey Taster." After your tour, feel free to browse the Distillery gift shop, where you will find exclusive Jameson gifts to take home, such as 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.

This was my first time spending quality time in cork, and my first time to do a walking tour in cork. I must say it was the best experience I have had and how lucky to meet Noel Welch. What a treasure you have with Noel, a man who was born and reared in Cork. He loves this city, and knows so much about it. The way he imparts the words in wisdom and experience in cork was memorable. We’ll be back Margarita and Peadar

The tour was great. Unlike Lisbon (that was our last tour) the focus here was on great restaurants and locations. We were able to get to know great places and try delicious specialties.

The tour was great and very interesting. It wasn't just about years. My daughter is 20 years old and was also enthusiastic about the tour.

Wonderful and informative, very interesting. Your was lively and interactive, especially the whiskey tasting! Highly recommend this tour.

Really informative, super helpful staff and excellent gift shop!
