Enjoyed the scenery and the walking path out to the ocean. They have a small cafe inside which was very busy and seemed to be favored by a lot of people. We took the tour and it was nice.

Did the tour with Katie B. Great tour guide with a great sense of humour. Whisky is fabulous and well worth the visit. I would go back again and again (it's a long way from Australia though)

We didn't do any of the tours at Ardbeg but did do the Whisky Taster with lunch. The whisky was fantastic. The distillery grounds are also enjoyable to walk around and relax. There are nice views of the distillery from near the water.

Visited for the standard 3pm tour (£7) which was led by a very knowledgable young woman who led us through each step of the whisky making process. It was great to get the opportunity to get a taste of the wash straight from the wash...More

We had lunch and had to wait 20 minutes. Staff were very friendly and took great care of us. There was a mix up with our order however they quickly sorted it. Food was excellent. Stopped in for lunch.

Prices are not so different from shop prices but there may be some whiskies only available from the distillery.
