17% increase in visitors to Old Jameson Distillery in H1

One of Dublin’s top visitor attractions, The Old Jameson Distillery in Smithfield, has shown a 17 per cent growth in visitors for the first six months over the same period last year, with 107,000 visitors passing through its doors between January 1st and June 31st this year.

The distillery visitor center, famous for its Jameson guided tours and Irish ‘Shindig Nights’, is particularly popular as a tourist destination. The majority of its custom so far this year has come from the US, France, Britain, Germany and Scandinavia.
 
John Callely, Managing Director of the Watercourse Distillery which operates the Old Jameson Distillery in Dublin and the Jameson Experience in Midleton, Co Cork, said, “It’s encouraging to know that despite a very challenging economic environment, we managed to increase our number of visitors.”
 
He added, “The Centre is housed within the original four walls where John Jameson founded the distillery in 1780. It’s rich in history and provides visitors not only with insight into the triple distillation process for Jameson, but also excellent dining at lunch or in the evening at the Jameson Shindig, with music, song and dance.”
