About the Distillery

We’re calling last orders at the Old Jameson Distillery, closing from September 1st until March 2017 in order to bring you the greatest living whiskey experience - just in time for Saint Patrick’s Day.

Don’t worry, like every good home, you’ll always be welcome back.
Stay tuned here from September to follow our progress.

We appreciate your patience during this time. However, if you are in Dublin during August, drop by Bow St. - we are open and look forward to seeing you!


Discover the Jameson Irish Whiskey story, where the last chapter is drinkable. Visit the original Bow Street distillery in Smithfield Dublin, the place we’ve called home ever since John Jameson first set up shop in 1780. A trip to Bow Street offers guided tours and tasting experiences that will give you a real appreciation for the Jameson story, from our heritage, to our production process which gives us our unique, iconic taste.

Guided Tour

A guided tour, where you will see, taste and smell the Jameson Irish whiskey experience. Our passionate tour guides will walk you through the living history of the Old Jameson Distillery, where the legend of John Jameson began. You’ll get a glimpse into our past, and the craft and traditions that we have lived by, for over two centuries.

You will end the tour by putting theory into practice, with a comparative tasting, giving you an understanding of the key differences between Scotch, American and Jameson Irish Whiskey. Since memories can fade over time, you’ll also be given a refreshing Jameson Ginger and Lime, a coveted Jameson Whiskey Tasting Certificate, and all the bragging rights that come with it.

Tours run approximately every 15 minutes from April – October and every 25 minutes from November to March.

Please note that tours can sell out during peak times and we recommend that you book in advance to avoid thirst and disappointment.
