|About these ratings|
Did you know that in Irish, whiskey is called uisce beatha and is literally "the water of life?" Chronicling the history of the Jameson family and the "water" they're known for, the Old Jameson Distillery no longer makes the hard stuff (that's done elsewhere) though it does offer tours that provide insight on just how to do it.
One IgoUgo.com user says, "I thought this was a good tour even though I am not normally a whiskey drinker. It is well worth going to and anyone who is not a whiskey fan is still likely to appreciate the distinct flavours of the Irish brew." A TripAdvisor user and self-described avid whiskey drinker also enjoyed his experience, saying, "I have read lots about the production of whisky/whiskey but really enjoyed this tour as it showed all the equipment and processes used."
Open daily, the Old Jameson Distillery charges a pretty hefty admission fee -- about $17 USD (€14) for adults -- though most travelers didn't seem to be too bothered by it. You can find it North of the Liffey on Bow Street. For more information on admission prices and hours of operation, visit the distillery's website.
