We had an absolute blast at this Jameson Tour. It was the best part of our Ireland weekend trip! We had originally planned to only go to the Guinness Tour, but honestly, this one was so much better by comparison (we went on the Jameson tour first). The Jameson Tour was guided smoothly, professionally, and entertainingly. It was short, informative, and sweet, and it was very interactive. I never felt lost or overwhelmed. The smaller facility is also better for crowds who don't want to walk as much as in the Guinness Factory. You also learn how to taste test Whisky and can customize a flask at the end for 5 extra euro. Your ticket also comes with a free drink at the end, and the community space could not be cuter or easier to navigate.
Tommy, our bus driver/tour guide, was wonderful! I thought the tour of Galway was a bit short, but it is a small area to be fair. The drive to the cliffs was so beautiful. The cliffs themselves were also gorgeous, of course. It was crucial to my experience to have gone on a day with good weather. It's definitely worth timing your trip to avoid rain. Tommy took us on the Wild Atlantic Way on the way back to Galway. I didn't know that route existed before he took us there but I LOVED it so much. That was actually my favorite part.
It was a holistic approach to seeing all of Ireland in one day. From coast to coast, Dublin to Galway and the Cliffs of Moher, the entire experience was a grand one, and my friend visiting from out of town loved it. We felt we had seen a LOT of Ireland by the end of the program, and it was only a day long. Nor was it too tiring to do, though the Cliffs can be windy and a bit of a hike depending on how far you want to go. Overall, a five star experience I can never praise enough.
The travel was perfect, on-time pick-up, the driver was very friendly, everything goes how it was scheduled on the itinerary. Make sure to bring an umbrella and the right clothes and shoes, the wheater can be unpredictable. If you are lucky you are going to be able to see the cliffs. As a suggestion if you are vegan/vegetarian bring some food with you, it may be a little difficult to find something.
We took the bus from Dublin and ended up staying in Galway at the end of the day. Our guide, Tommy, offered phenomenal stories and facts throughout the bus ride and on the walking tour of Galway. The stops along the way were beautiful; I could not have imagined a better day.
