Irish whiskey is world famous and today, you’ll have the opportunity to visit one of Ireland’s most famous distilleries and enjoy an orientation tour of the city of Cork.
Cork, a city of steeples and bridges, is a compact city in size yet diverse in its range of activities. Its quays that stretch all the way from Cork Harbour into the heart of the city welcome ships from the seven seas. The city center is actually a small island between two channels of the river with streets lined with shops, arcades and boutiques. Your panoramic tour introduces you to Cork. You’ll see the spires of St Fin Barre’s Cathedral, the old Courthouse, City Hall and the renowned Bells of Shandon.
A visit to the Jameson Experience in Midleton, takes you right into the heart of the cherished whiskey-making tradition. You’ll enjoy a guided tour of this beautifully restored 18th-century industrial complex, which includes a fully operational water-wheel and a copper still - the largest in the world. An audio-visual presentation breathes life into the Irish whiskey legend.
You are invited to relax in the atmosphere of a traditional Irish pub and sample a glass of Ireland’s finest whiskey. Afterwards, why not visit the craft shop or the coffee shop at the Jameson Experience where you can lose yourself in the charm of another age.
