The Jameson Distillery, Dublin

This is a fantastic way to spend an hour or two while you’re in Dublin: take the Jameson whiskey tour which is an absolute must and you’ll even get a wee snifter to keep you warm at the end of it all.

Jameson Distillery

The Jameson Distillery is right in the middle of Dublin and was, until 1971, a major employer in the city. It was established in 1780 and used to be called the Bow Street Distillery.

John Jameson, the then manager, took over and expanded it in 1805. By 1810, it was officially renamed John Jameson & Son’s Bow Street Distillery and covered over five acres by 1886.
