When you visit the Jameson's distillery, make sure to volunteer to become a certified Jameson Irish Whiskey expert. The whole tour is a fascinating historical look at the magic of distilling, of Irish history and of the art of tasting. Start with a guided walk through various buildings that tell the story of grain and the valor and sweat of men who labored to perfect the methods and flavors of one of the worlds great brands. Witness the giant copper stills and marvel at the mannequins who depict life and work from 200 years ago. Although tours are not permitted in the top secret new facility, you will learn a lot and be amused with the old buildings and semi obsolete equipment. The storage facility where aging whiskey is kept is a memorable experience and the smell is incredible. Towards the tours end when the guide asks for volunteers RAISE YOUR HAND! If picked (go ahead and really really want it) you will get to taste various whiskey labels including Jack Daniels to compare with the 12 year old Jameson. There is no comparison! You can register for your certificate via email and print it out on the way home! You will feel warm and fuzzy as you exit through the gift shop where you'll be tempted to purchase the 12 year old, and many other items, before your bus ride back to the cruise port.
