We came to Bushmills as we were already nearby to see the Giants Causeway. We went as a family of three generations, the eldest being my husbands grandfather in his eighties. He's the whiskey fan so the visit was primarily for him, however the rest of us enjoyed it too. Our tour guide was Barry, he was friendly and enthusiastic, ensured we could all hear him and waited for us to catch up as we were the back of the group. The tour lasts around 35mins, it was informative, funny and not tedious in the slightest! I'm pregnant and my husband isn't a big drinker, but for £8 we didn't mind if we didn't sample the complimentary whiskeys, and his grandfather appreciated the extra we passed him!

It has been many years since I took this trip. It was a superb visit. Our guide Shanice was tremendous and full of enthusiasm and made the whole visit very informative and interesting. She was also a fluent Spanish speaker which was of great help to some Spanish people in our group. I consider the visit very good value and would definitely recommend it.

Not being a drinker myself was unsure about this tour, however the tour guide was excellent, really informative. Would recommend to anyone. My 12 and 16 year old also enjoyed the tour.

Wasn't what I expected. Was thinking stuffy tour guide and typical distillery tour. Ended up being a very informative view of a very historically significant place! Highly recommended and the whiskey ain't so bad either!

Loved the tour which gave just enough info to be interesting and not tedious to someone who is not a big whisky drinker. Thought the tasting was excellent! Like the chance to try 3 whiskys with a few notes to help explain the tastes. Kept it relaxed for us to chat over the drinks as well as learning a little something.
