We arrived on a rainy day at Bushmills. Our scheduled tour was a 20 min. wait. A dozen of us walked through the various areas of the distillery (no photos allows) some outside, so bring an umbrella if rainy. Our guide was informative and friendly....More

We didn't do the tour as it was a stop for tasting as we were on a private tour to mainly see the surrounding countryside. Our guide knew one of the guys at Bushmill's to inform us about the different whiskey's they make and we...More

We had the best tour guide ever, Berry! He was such a spirit to listen to while touring and learning of Bushmills and it’s history. I think all ages would appreciate this tour, and who wouldn’t like samples at the end!!

The distillery tour is very well thought out. The guides are friendly and knowledgeable. Great souvenirs from the shop. I especially loved the bottle you can print your own label on.

This tour is nice but you can't take photos anywhere. They fail to say that they buy some of their stuff from jameson. This tour is nice but I think everyone would prefer the real Jameson tour in Middleton..

We had toured other distilleries so we just wanted to taste different whiskies. It was a seated tasting with 8 other people and an expert who explained the difference whiskies. Fun to visit with other people and to pick your favorite whiskey.

On a long Weekend to NI, visited here as part of our trip along the Antrim Coast. Our guide was knowledgeable and answered all our questions. The tasting samples were generous, mind out if you are driving! Well done Bushmills 👍
