Highly recommend this tour, as your get to experience both Guiness and Jameson, with the additional benefits of having a brief walking tour of Dublin between the two. This also allows you to skip the line, which saved a significant amount of time at Guiness.

Had a fantastic tour to both the distillery and the brewery. Our guide John was very knowledgeable and a very welcoming guide. He really made the experience excellent for our group.

Frankie was an excellent guide! Shared his great knowledge of both attractions, as well as stories of the town and history. We’ll worth the price!
