Excellent experience. My husband and I enjoyed the secret pub room, the host's narrative and the tastings. Best was pulling our own pint behind the bar.

Tip: go early so you can tour the building and hit the Gravity Bar for a pint and view before your Connoisseur Experience starts.

This was a great tour! It was very informative and you get to try beers you wouldn't normally even lnow about. Our guide/teacher was awesome!He was very knowledgeable. Spend the extra money and try this special tour. It has all the benefits of the regular tour but you also get the private tasting.

This VIP Connoisseur Taste Experience tour was absolutely fantastic! Found out I really do like Guinness and actually found another brew, FSB that I like too. The guide or bar person, Beth was wonderful. She was very knowledgeable and great fun. Also a big shout out to the folks in the Guinness Storehouse office for working with John at Wild Wicklow Tours as I confused the length of that tour and had to switch days and Guinness was willing to let me switch my tour day.

Absolutely the best. Our host was very knowledgeable making it really interesting. Tasting all the beers in a quiet private bar was more than expected.

We had a fabulous time on this tour! The Connoisseur experience was special and Beth made it both fun and informative. We had time to tour the exhibits before and after the tasting and also enjoyed one final pint in the Gravity Bar. A great afternoon!

I went this weekend with my 4 mates for the Taste Experience tour. First of all the fast track to enter the storehouse is worth its weight alone, saved at least an hour plus walking to the front of the queue. Second this tour has 3 parts 1. skip the queue, 2 guided walking tour of the storehouse (incl free pint in the 7th floor Gravity bar), 3rd the tasting session (including free samples). We were booked on the taste tour for 4 PM and turned up in time to take this, however what we didn't realise is that the gravity bar shuts about 6/6.30 so you are in a bit of a rush (as the tasting session takes 1 1/2 to 2 hours) to get there for you last free pint and no time to take the walking tour. (if you can still walk by then). So recommend going early enough to take the walking tour first ( leave at least an hour for this) then leave the free pint associated with this tour until the end so that you can take in the full connoisseur taste experience. Enjoy, well worth the money.

This is the absolute best way to enjoy the Guinness experience. I enjoyed this personalized tour immensely and our guide was awesome! I learned so much about the history, how to pour, how to taste and how vast the Guinness empire extends. Will definitely do it again next time I'm in Dublin.

The best way to experience Guiness. A great hidden gem. Skip the line and skip the crowd and really learn the histiory of Guiness and the Guiness Family in a wonderful high end pub setting.

You enjoy a private tasting with fewer than 20 people, walking back in time in Guiiness history.

Not going to work for the quick in and quick out tourist - -but is perfect for the person that is serious about their beer!

It seemed a little expensive when we first booked it but our entire party agreed that it was so worth every penny. We had a blast!

VIP tour! We'll worth it. The private tasting room was wonderful. We skipped the line. Our "bartender"??, not sure of the correct tittle was informative, professional and witty! Thanks again

Our pour guide Dan was a great host. Providing the history of Guiness. Of course the four tastes of different Guiness are worth it but learning the history behind the beer was a bonus. A great tour, great host. Well worth the small cost.

A very unique and personal experience. Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave a great presentation. Plus the 3-4 pints of Guinness you get during the whole experience is fun too!

This is the best way to experience a Guinness tasting. It is in a private bar setting only accessible by the tour lead and the group (behind a sealed door). If you love Guinness, or beer in general, this is a must do, as you get to learn and sample various types of Guinness and even get a bottle to take home with you!

I definitely recommend this tour. It is worth the money. A great introduction to Guinness and the four flavors of the beer. Don't miss it.

It may have been because 7 of the 11 of our group didn't show but this was by far the best way to do the Guinness Tour. The bar they have put aside for this is cozy and the Connoisseur was informative and funny. All in all a great experience!
