Bushmills Distillery reviews
Excellent tour of a working distillery. Perfect in length and very informative. Thanks to Jerry from Kenmare. Rewarding dram at the end.

A must do activity if going into the town of Bushmills. A fixture in the town since 1608, the Distillery Tour and Sampling is an experience not to miss.

My favourite distillery in Northern Ireland))) Ok, My favourite Irish whiskey ever! Especially when you get here, to the distillery you completely understand the traditions and greatness of Bushmills whiskey. Unfortunately it is not allowed to take photos inside (like in most of the Scottish distilleries) but the emotions and taste you will remember forever) I wish I could buy more whiskey with me after (. Never be greedy).
So so bloody good. Our tour guide was genuinely and obviously passionate about whiskey and so knowledgable too. You’ll be hard pushed to find a more interesting distillery tour - they’re distilling over 400 years there!
