A very popular tourist attraction. Must see, if you like Irish whisky. You can learn a lot about production process and, of course, taste its result. You have to pay for the tasting, but why not?
This was our second visit to Bushmills Distillery. This time with my partner's parents. From the minute we arrived the staff were super friendly. We were on the last tour and had a really wonderful and engaging tour guide (Sonia). My father-in-law is particularly interested in whiskey and Sonia answered all his questions. She was knowledgeable and professional and made the tour. In total it lasted about one hour and you get a chance to see a working distillery. Afterwards we enjoyed our two complementary whiskeys and brought home a personalized bottle from the well stocked gift shop. Would definitely recommend for a fun afternoon!
