Guinness Storehouse, Dublin

4.0
Have a pint of Ireland's favorite beer at Guinness Storehouse, which narrates the history of one of the country's major exports. The old storehouse is the only part of a massive brewery open to the public--its signature attraction is a glass atrium designed to resemble a pint of Guinness. Discover the history of both the historical brewery and the popular brand on the ground floor, and then proceed up through seven more floors that demonstrate everything from the selection of barley and hops to the transportation and advertising of the finished product. Once you reach the top, claim your complimentary pint of the black brew at the storehouse's glass-enclosed bar, which offers panoramic views of the city. Put Guinness Storehouse into our Dublin day trip app to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Dublin.

  • Nice place for discovering the Guinness history. You should definitely buy your ticket online in order to benefit from the discounts.  more »
  • One of the most beautiful places to visit in Dublin. A real experience through the centuries-old history of Guinness. Everything takes place inside a building in the shape of a pint, there are several floors each dedicated to specific topics. It begins with the ingredients and cycles through all stages of production and distribution with the help of audio-video and other multimedia material. Closes the trip a lesson on how to properly pour the beer into the glass.

  • If you enjoy beer, this place is mandatory in Dublin. I had a good time learning a little bit more about the brewery history. The exhibitions are interactive what makes you want spend a lot of time listening and reading the information. I suggest to buy the audio guides, it's only 1 euro and makes you understand everything clearer. They offer an opportunity to pour your own free pint at the end of the visit. There's a magnificent view of Dublin at the higher level. There's also restaurants if you need to lunch or brunch, it's a bit expansive but I won't take one star out for it once the price they practice is related to the experience they offer. I appreciate so much being part of this. Lastly the Guiness shop, almost impossible to get out without buying anything.
  • I love this place. I attended a private event hosted by Google. We were met off the coach by a single drummer who then led us through the gates where we were entertained by The Hit Machine Drummers. They were amazing. The whole welcome made me feel like royalty! Inside there is a massive souvenir shop and then we walked through the museum to the bar upstairs. Loads of fantastic displays, I wish I had more time to take it all in. The food was fantastic, and I really enjoyed my first ever taste of Guinness. The Gravity Bar had superb views of Dublin, but was too noisy to hang around. The bar one floor down was much more comfortable. I really hope I get the chance to visit again one day.
  • This was one of the first stops on our trip to Ireland. A must-visit for anyone interested in brewing or the history behind the Guinness brand. We took a self-guided tour which included the opportunity to visit a number of interactive displays and a short course in the art and science behind the brew. We also had a hands-on demonstration that aimed to teach the correct way to pour a Guinness. After the tour, we went to the top floor to enjoy a Guinness alongside the spectacular view of Dublin. In all, we spent about four hours touring and enjoying the view.
  • This is not a working brewery tour. I would characterize this as a historical tour of Guinness in one of the original facilities where it was made. The tour and the attention to it's detail is outstanding. It is a grand old stone building. I enjoyed the tour but took one star off because this is not a true brewery tour. There is a heavy emphasis in the main lobby on buying something with a Guinness logo on it. The pint of Guinness at the overcrowded rooftop bar was the best part of this experience. There is a free parking lot on the next block which was nice.
  • The atmosphere is fantastic. One can truly experience the feeling of Guinness spirit and tradition. Very well arranged museum. Tasty beer. Excellent views. Fun entertainment.I visited as part of Google Program closing event.

Where to stay in Dublin

Dublin offers everything from luxury hotels to eclectic guesthouses. Explore over 1,000 years of history in the city on foot by staying at one of the hotels or hostels in the city center. The south side of the river has always been a popular place to stay, particularly near Temple University or the tourist nightlife center Temple Bar, but a new crop of attractive options has popped up on the north side as well. For more affordable accommodations, try a hostel or make your way toward St. Stephen's Green for a more comfortable stay at a mid-range hotel. If the artistic spirit of Dublin is what beckoned you, spend your holiday in a guesthouse near the creative Lower Gardiner Street.
