While I'm not really a beer aficionado, I did enjoy the ambiance and environment of the Bushmill's Distillery. Very nice gift shop, terrific photo opportunities.

In business since 1608, the Old Bushmills Distillery is the oldest legal distillery in the world. Unlike Scotch whisky this malt is destilled three times and obtain smoother flawour. Good experience for visit.

Well thought out tour. Nice facilities. Great gift store. Tour guide was involved and very personable. Well worth the stop for a couple of non drinkers. Easy parking right outside the facility.

The tour involves a fair bit of walking and there are several flights of stairs involved at different points. I think the bar/cafe and gift shop are accessible though.
