Ah... Irish people always do it better they say...
Whiskey... The lifeblood of many a Irish person in the 1800s and early 1900s until it was taken away from everyone while the Irish government prohibited export of the drop. Interestingly they say if it wasn't for this Scotch would not be in the dominant position it is in terms of sales.
Now it is upto everyone to return Irish Whiskey to number one drop of the world.
Do your share. Visit the Jamisons Distilery. Drink Jamesons over and over again.
When doing the tour take the offer to try extra whiskey when given the opportunity after the video.

Jamieson Whiskey gets the thumbs up from us
The Jamieson brewery is also worth going to, the actual tour being quite different to the one at the Jamieson Brewery in Cork, which I visited in the mid-90's. You can sample the different types of whiskey, and also get a complimentary drink.
The Old Jameson Distillery
Besides the Guinness brewery, the Old Jameson Whiskey Distillery is also one of the top attractions of Dublin.
The price for the guided tour is 7,95 euro/person, so a lot cheaper than the Guinness Brewery, which costs 13,50 euro!
You cannot visit the distillery by yourself, only with a guided tour. The tour is well done, the process is explained in a clear, brief way and at the end you get of course a glass of whiskey for free. They also take 4 volunteers to try out different brands, but at 11 o'clock, this was too much to ask of me ;-)
Jameson distillery: history tour 1
The Old Jameson Distillery in Smithfield village is in the heart of Dublin. Irish wihiskey can trace its history back to the 6th century
The tour begins with a short movie of introduction and summary, then the guide walks you through all the rooms and the phases of the alcohol making. You will smell barley really strong and see some old tools, as an old stone which has become so smooth for the worning out of the press, and tradition want if you touch it it gives you 1 year of good luck. Recommendation : touch it a few times....:)
Jameson distillery: decide which is your fav
At the end of the tour the guide will ask if there are volountaries for a taste, so do raise your hand. You will taste a range of different whiskeys and be asked which is your fav (don`t worry about not choosing Jameson, you will just be the object of fun from the tourist guide;) and you will get a certificate as prooved taster. All the other people from the group can anyway enjoy a sip of Jameson from the bar. It`s very funny and an original experience, worthy the price of the ticket. (7 Euro about)
Touring and Tasting Tutorials
The tour begins with an audio visual presentation of the history of Jamesons. But what really made this an experience is the "whiskey tasting tutorial" that occurs after the tour. If you are lucky, you can take a sampling of 6 different whiskeys (4 Irish whiskeys, a Scottish whisky and an American bourbon) with explanations on what the differences are. You can actually have a free shot (without using your free drink ticket).
My brother had a chance to be a whiskey taster and they provided a "certificate" at the end of the session.

The Old Jameson Distillery
I'm saving this for my next trip to Dublin, but I did walk by on my way to the Guinness Storehouse. I learned that it takes about 45 minutes to tour the facility, which was once one of the finest distilleries in the world, but is now a visitor's attraction. At the end of the tour, there is a whisky tasting.
May not actually be a distillary, but go to Smithfield and have a look at how they make "Whiskey" thats with an "e". In my opinion the Irish version is far superior to that produced either by the Scots or the Yanks, but thats just my uneducated opinion. Anyway see what you think yourself!! Also is a great place for lunch - can highly recommend the food!
Old Jameson Distillery
If you like Whiskey this is a good place to go. Take a tour around the distillery for €7 to include a glass of Irish whiskey. The tours takes about 45 minutes. You can also have a carvery lunch and if you don't fancy that a bar downstairs provides soup and sandwiches etc. The gift shop of couse is very expensive.

Jameson's Old Distillery
Any trip to the Guinness brewery wouldn't be complete without a stop in Jameson's Old Whiskey Distillery. The tour will show you all the steps of the whiskey-making process, and, should you be lucky enough to take part in a tasting, will make you discover the wide array of Irish whiskies.
Taste a bit of heritage
What else do you do at Jamerson's ... you taste whisky. but comparing it to Jack Daniels...hmm I'm not certain about that one, but it was on the table to compare.
