Guinness Storehouse, Dublin

4.0
#1 of 4,941 in Things to do in Ireland
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.

  • Let the visit take time, there is always a lot of people. We went around by themselves without headphones it worked good. Nice shop and toppbaren was really cool what a view!!

  • As a Guinness drinker I was really looking forward to our visit but was disappointed with the massive over commercialisation of the storehouse combined with in my opinion the high cost of 18 and a hal...  more »

  • Had a really fun time at the Guinness Storehouse. We spent a good 2-3 hours there traversing the various levels and looking over the exhibits. You get a pint included with the price of your ticket (student entry only 20 euros), and a tasting session. There's a decent 360 viewing point right at the top of the building, and an interesting section on the history of Guinness' branding. The building is situated a little off the main roads of Dublin but isn't much trouble to find. It took us 15-20 minutes to walk following Google maps from the main town centre. Thoroughly recommend.
  • Great place to visit. My first pint of Guinness in Ireland carefully pulled under strict instructions by my loving wife. Not a bad start to a weekend away. The staff were amazing, helpful, entertaining and couldn't do enough for us. The sky bar was a really nice experience and seeing how the drink is made from start to finish was incredibly interesting, even the Mrs, despite the fact that she hates guiness, really enjoyed it. Would recommend it every day of the week. The only down side would be the guide ends at 8pm latest. Would have loved to have stayed later to enjoy the view over the city just a little longer. Great work guys, keep this wonderful drink coming and use every second of that 9000 year lease. A center piece to the history of Dublin and a must do for everyone that visits. Good things come to those who wait. The experience was worth waiting for.
  • For hardcore fans of all things Guinness this is a religious experience. The place is just amazing. Very well put together. Very clean and Modern. This a self guided walk through tour, so u can take your time to view the many presentations. I highly recommend this for anyone visiting Dublin. Buy tickets online with your phone and walk right past the long line up. Always busy and crowded but well worth it.
  • First off, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND booking in advance for the VIP tour, please allow yourself this luxury to fully enjoy this experience. It is truly magical. The tour itself is good and informative, as you walk around the various areas that describe and explain the process on how to make and what it takes to create the perfect pint of Guinness. This can easily take up a good few hours, then you have other levels which include the Guinness Academy where you learn to pull pints, various other exhibits we didn't get a chance to do and the 'gravity bar' where you may get a free pint with your visit and get pretty wasted (the poor cleaners on the staircase, don't worry they do keep it very safe and clean). However the BEST section by far was the VIP tour in the private bar. You are assigned a time slot when you book and this will be the time you move away from the tour or what you're doing to be whisked off with a very small group to a private and hidden bar which is exclusively for you. Here you learn not only the history of Guinness from an expert barman and host of the Guinness factory but sample various foreign, current and discontinued ales from their past. Every little detail in here is perfect and it's a gorgeous experience. You not only have several decent sized samples, but you also get to pour yourself a pint of one of the freshest most delicious kegs from the factory, choice of ales to take home as a gift (both included in the VIP price) AND you receive an additional free gravity bar pint/bottle on top of the one recieved with your regular admission. So overall you get 4 drinks included in the price which isn't even that high for the standard this experience it is at. You also get 2 restaurants alongside the gravity bar in which you can also use your free pint coupon if you fancy a bottle of original or other choices of Guinness products not sold at the gravity bar. In one of these you can get delicious Guinness stew, Guinness burgers and Guinness spicy hot dogs! This place is a dream come true for me and was one of the biggest highlights of our entire Ireland trip and I just cannot wait to return here as soon as we can! I sincerely hope you get the same on your visit, cannot recommend VIP enough, worth everything and more.
  • If your looking at this place online, you've probably made your mind up that it's a must see attraction in the city , and I'm not going to convince you otherwise. Me and my friends had a great time soaking up the culture and rich history of Arthur Guinness and his contribution to Dublin, Ireland and Beer. If you are even remotely interested in the historical significance of Guinness and it's importance to Ireland then you will really enjoy this place. As you enter you can see the original 9000 year lease that Arthur Guinness signed for the land and brewery. Throughout the 7 or so floors you'll experience the science, history , advertisement, transportation and culture that the black stuff has created. The Gravity bar , giving a 360 panoramic view of the city is a highlight , with which you can take in while sipping your included pint of your choice.
