I would recommend this tour. We did it for my husbands birthday and he truly loved it. It was a lot of fun. And the beer tasting was great.
The storehouse wouldn't have been the same without getting to experience this connoisseur taste. Plenty of Guinness, a small group of people and all with the same desire to learn how to pour the perfect pint. It was a really fun time!
If you are lucky enough to acquire a voucher/ticket to this experience, you are in for a treat! This is such an unique experience that only 50 people get to do each day out of the 5000 visitors to Guinness each day. You get to try 4 half-pints of various Guinness beer while learning about the origins and history of the various Guinness beers, as well as learn how to pour the Perfect Pint of Guinness! Thanks to this experience I have broadened my Guinness taste, while still loving Draught, and have a higher standard for what I expect from my server when I order a Guinness Draught. We also had an outstanding guide named Alan who made the experience so memorable!
Really a great experience. The lines were wrapped around the building so it was a relief to beat the line and enter a room with only 20 people with an excellent tasting and pouring experience. Our host was entertaining and we all had a good time!
I would highly recommend this Experience!
Fabulous experience - totally worth upgrading from the normal your. The tasting room was an incredible room and the guide was so knowledgeable and friendly. Simply wonderful
The Guinness Connoisseur Taste Experience is well worth the extra above the regular Guinness tour. We had a designated expert which guided us to a private bar room with about 12-14 total people and gave us the history of Guinness along with 4 tasters these were about 1/2 pint tasters, not just a little splash. We all then learned how to pour our own full pint of Guinness which we enjoyed. Upon the completion of the private experience about 90 minutes we were given a choice of which Guinness we would like to take in a bottle with us. This was all in addition to the regular Guinness tour. It was amazing and we would recommend upgrading to the Connoisseur tour. A great value.
the only way to do the Guinness tour...private room a guide to take us thru the history of Guinness taste testing different beers trained to pull the best Guinness beer to consume takeaway bottles of your favourite from the taste test and a voucher to get a drink upstairs overlooking Dublin. A must for beer lovers!
This was a really amazing tour. It is a small group in a private room with a beer connoisseur. It was incredibly informative as well as fun. Plus there was a ton of beer! You learn how to properly pour a Guinness which is a memorable experience. Highly recommended!
Highlight of our trip! The connisseur tasting room was above and beyond our expectations. Darren our host and master connisseur was charming and made the experience very enjoyable. And of course, the best part was the Guinness!!

Great fun! The Connoisseur was very nice and the tasting was absolutely amazing! you try different types of Guinness and learn about the story of Guinness and the Storehouse. Once the Connoisseur experience is finished you take with you a bottle of your favorite Guinness. After that you can go around and explore the Storehouse. We had a great time and had lots of guinnessess!
This is something I would recommend to anyone. It was a great time and they explained everything. They made you feel comfortable the whole time.
This was a wonderful experience! We highly recommend it! Aaron our host was charming and informative and we were able to enjoy a leisurely day without the crowds!
Amazing is all I can say. I've been on the regular Guinness tour before but this time we did the connoisseur experience and were so glad we did. If you love beer, this is a must. Fantastic and knowledgeable staff. I will do it again next time I go to Dublin.
Treat yourself to this! It was an awesome way to start our trip to Dublin after flying all night.
This was a very fun and informative session. I am not a beer drinker but the other 3 members in our group were and all of us had a blast! Alan was a great sport taking pictures, creating a great atmosphere, and answered all questions.
Wonderful unique experience away from the crowd
Bought this experience for my husband but I enjoyed it as much as he did
Only disappointment was the Gravity Bar too full/busy could not find a seat left earlier than wanted to
Fantastic. You get access to a little pub with a private guide inside the storehouse. Great history.
This was SO worth the money! The best way to experience the Guinness Storehouse, would do it again. You learn all the history while sitting in a private room tasting Guinness, we loved it!!
This was a wonderful tour! The young man who led our group through this tasting was fun, vibrant, and knowledgeable. I would absolutely repeat this!

To tell you the truth, I was a virgin to Guinness, before this tour. I had never tried Guinness before, but I thought while in Ireland, why not try new things! I now know how to drink and pour a glass of Guinness, as well as I have a better understanding of the Guinness story. It was a very fun and interactive tour, that I would highly recommend anyone to try.
I wasn't the one who took the tour - my dad did but he said he had a great time and it was worth the extra money to take the Connoisseur Experience over the standard tour as it is more personalized.
