A new Summer season of Shindigs has opened at the Jameeson Distillery in Smithfield. One of the city’s most authentic visitor attractions, the
Old Distillery Tour involves a walk through the history of Jameson and the triple distillation process of Irish whiskey. Equipment, effigies, photographs, sounds, smells and a commentary by friendly anmd knowledgeable guides create an experience which is evocative, informative and entertaining.
Tours take place daily but on Shindig Nights they are preceded by cocktails based on Jameson and followed by a dinner show and whiskey tasting in a modern, comfortable cabaret room. The four course meeal ends with an Irish coffee and the diners, drawn from many countries, invariably join in the world-renowned Irish ballads with some even attempting a little Irish dancing.
It is all great fun and excellent value at at €60.
