Old Jameson Distillery

The Old Jameson Distillery, tucked away in a quaint cobbled alley that opens into a small courtyard, has managed to maintain the charm of its heyday in the early 1800s. Though most of the operation has since moved to Cork, Ireland, the old distillery is one of Dublin's top attractions and a must-see for whiskey fans as well as those curious about this Irish landmark.

Tours run daily and cover the history of John Jameson and the family business he created in addition to the whiskey making process. After learning about malting, milling, mashing, fermenting, distilling and maturing, visitors are invited to take part in the final step--tasting!

For those who feel that the tour sample has not quenched their thirst, they have the option to pull up a stool at the Jameson Bar or take their next drink with a meal at The 3rd Still restaurant. On the way out, a stop at the gift shop is a must to pick up souvenir bottles, glasses and everything else emblazoned with the signature Jameson seal.

Practical Info

Jameson Whiskey was one of the six main Dublin Whiskeys when it entered the market back in the late 1700s. The brand quickly rose to the top and since the early 19th century has been the best selling Irish whiskey in the world. While the company's regular brand is most widely used, Jameson also distills a select few whiskeys under special labels. The Red Breast and Midleton are amongst the few that can only be purchased from the Old Distillery's gift shop, so be sure to stock up!
