Butlers Jameson Irish whiskey truffle
This is a good truffle with Jameson Whiskey. Nevertheless, I prefer the jameson irish coffee dark chocolate (see next post).

The old jameson distillery bar
Bow street, smithfield, Dublin
I tasted hot chocolate with Jameson. Unfortunatey, it was not the kind of chocolate that I was expecting. It was a kind of "cola-cao". Next time I will taste the irish coffee...

The old Jameson distillery whiskey tasting
The regular tour includes a sample of Jameson. In addition, they ask for 8 volunteers. Fortunately, I was among them. If you are not selected, you can take part in this tasting paying and additional fee of 8.5 EUR (or something like this).
For this price you taste three different whiskeys:
- Johny walker 12 years (Scotish)
- Jameson (Irish)
- Jack Daniels (American)
this is the best way to compare, the kind of tastings that I enjoy: several glasses in parallel :-)
Nevertheless, I prefer brandy/cognac/armagnac to whiskey

The old Jameson distillery
Bow street, smithfield, Dublin
This is a nice touristic attraction in Dublin. In my opinion, the guided visit is more interesting than the guiness one. If you do not plan to visit Dublin, you can follow the virtual tour. For instance, you will learn that irish whiskey is distilled three times, amerian bourbon two, and scotish whiskey is a single distillation one. Worth to visit!

34-35 south william street, Dublin
This is an indian cuisine restaurant. It offers reasonable quality if you like indian restaurants. Nevertheless, the place was fully crowded and this was really annoying. We drank some wine from Chile.

Dark chocolate flavoured with guiness
This is much better than the previous product post. Nevetheless I think that it is not possible to feel that it contains guiness. This is not surprising considering that the amount of guiness is 0.1%
thus, it is only a commercial strategy.

Guiness adIt is said now that guiness is good for you, but I remember that in the past it was a stronger assertion: "guiness is good for health". Unfortunately, I couldn't find and ad with this orginal lemma. Nevertheless I found a great dedicated poster by Mike Oldfield.

this is an outstanding 360º sightseeing point of Dublin, just at the end of the touristic visit to Guiness. A pint of guiness is included with the regular entrance fee.

St. Jame's Gate, Dublin
This is a hughe fabric of the well-known beer with a visitor center. A must for beer lovers. Although the visit is not as great as I expected, at the end you reach the gravity bar (see next post), which really worths the visit.

33/34 Upper O'Connell Street, Dublin
it seems that this place is great for football. They have a large amount of screens in the second floor. Nevertheless, for lunch time, the second floor is closed.
About the meal this is another history. Although reasonable price, this is just a meal to feed you.

Cathedral Street, Dublin
If you go to Dublin and you try to follow the recommendations provided here you will realize that, at least, it is impossible to find three of the recommended places. The motivation is that they have changed the name.
- John M Keating -> The Churh
- The Goalpost -> Brannigan's
- Frasiers -> Murrays
