Must see · Specialty Museum · Historic Site
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.

  • I am not a museum person, nor a beer drinker, but this place was so well worth the visit, I was so impressed with the whole set up and then at the end to sit on the top level was amazing, the staff...  more »
  • Lots of lights and music. Like a Disney ride! Husband enjoyed all the machinery. I was a little bored, but its iconic! A must see in Dublin.  more »

  • Excellent value for money. We spent 2 hours there and the time flew by. Really interesting and easy to navigate this self guiding tour. Explains the brewing process in an interesting and visual way. Includes history of the family which was also interesting. Free pint of Guinness included in the price which could either be taken in the Guinness Academy where you can pour your own or the 360┬░ Gravity Bar which has excellent views of Dublin. Would recommend an early tour so you can get the full effect of the bar. It can get crowded later in the day. The myth is true - there's no better pint of Guinness than one poured in Dublin!! No visit is complete without a visit to the gift shop!! On the pricey side but good quality Guinness themed products. Would highly recommend this tour.
  • Tour was equal parts interesting and informative (although you should really love beer in order to get the most out of it). Not a Guinness fan by any stretch but it's true: Guinness does taste better in Ireland. The top floor bar level (for the complimentary pint that comes with tour admission) has great views but limited seating considering the building's capacity. Gift shop is cute but many novelty items can be found in other shops in Dublin.
