Is there parking at the Jameson Distillery?
Car parking wouldn’t have been too popular in 1780 Dublin, when we first opened our doors to Jameson Distillery Bow St., but thankfully there are plenty of car parks nearby today. The nearest car park is on Queens Street/Smithfield Square. Fortunately, Midleton Distillery Co. Cork has ample car and coach parking on the grounds.

Jameson Distillery Bow St. Tours

How often do your tours run?
Don’t worry, our tours happen a lot quicker than the time it takes to make our whiskey. In fact, the Bow St. Experience starts approximately every 15 minutes and as we hold the title for the World’s Leading Distillery Tour, it can get quite busy so it’s best to arrive early or book online at You’ll also find the times of all other experiences available here too.

How long are the tours?
Our experiences differ in length. The Bow St. Experience is 40 minutes, the Secret Whiskey Tasting is 40 minutes, the Whiskey Blending Class is 90 minutes, the Cocktail Making Class is 60 minutes and finally, the Cask Draw Experience is 20 minutes. Time well spent with friends old and new.

Should I pre-book my experience online?
Pre-booking is advised, especially for our Cocktail Making class, Whiskey Blending class, Cask Draw Experience and Secret Whiskey Tasting experience as they are space limited. Our flagship, the Bow St. Experience offers additional availability, so if you arrive without a booking, our aim will be to get you placed onto the next available tour (where possible), they start approximately every 15 minutes. However, to guarantee a specific time slot, please book online ahead of time.

Are kids allowed on Jameson Distillery Bow St. experiences?
In the spirit of inclusivity, anyone under 18 can take part in our flagship Bow St. Experience and learn about our story and process, but when it comes to our whiskey tasting, the kids will have to take a rain check. A soft drink will be provided for their enjoyment instead. Unfortunately, we can’t allow anyone under 18 on the Secret Whiskey Tasting, the Cocktail Making class, the Whiskey Blending class or the Cask Draw Experience. Luckily, patience is a virtue (and trust us great things can happen over time), so be sure to come back to us a few years down the line to enjoy one of these experiences.

Is Jameson Distillery Bow St. wheelchair accessible?
Our distillery is inclusive and accessible to all. In fact, all our experiences are wheelchair friendly. If you have any questions or if you’d like to make a booking please email our reservations team at

What are the ingredients used to make Jameson Irish whiskey?

John Jameson established our way of making whiskey in 1780 and we've been proudly sticking to it ever since. It might not be the easiest way, but insisting on the finest ingredients (unmalted and malted barley), triple distillation, and aging our whiskey in seasoned oak barrels has been the secret behind our signature smoothness.
