What You Can Expect

Skip the Line: Guinness Storehouse Entrance Ticket

Gravity Bar on the seventh floor

Located in the heart of the legendary St James's Gate brewery in Dublin, this production site has been home to the "Black Stuff" since 1759, when Arthur Guinness signed a lease for 9,000 years. The Storehouse, a former fermentation plant, has now been remodeled into a visitor center dedicated to the history of Guinness. Ireland's number one visitor attraction unfolds its tale across seven floors shaped around a giant pint glass which, if full, would contain 14.3 million pints of Guinness.

The highlight of the visit for many is the Gravity Bar, symbolically the "head of the pint", where one can enjoy 360 degree views across Dublin while savoring a complimentary pint of Guinness.

On the ground floor, where you can also visit the Retail Store, the massive exhibit introduces you to the four ingredients; water, barley, hops and yeast, all of which combine together to make a perfect pint. As you continue your visit, you will meet the fifth vital ingredient, the man himself, Arthur Guinness.

Up to 100 lucky visitors each week will be able to Start the Brew themselves by operating a computer that is scheduled on the same timetable as the brewhouse.

Opened in July 2004 to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Guinness advertising, the exhibition features Gilroy's original sketches, artwork and posters, drawn from the Guinness Archive.

Booking on-line is a must, as the line was huge. This is a must visit attraction, from the moment you enter, you will be amazed. There is new hidden treasure's around each corner/floor. The tasting room, was a must, as everyone say's Guinness taste very different in Ireland, and everyone is right. On the 5th floor there is a bar with live music, absolute great atmosphere, a nice place to relax and get a bite to eat.

Ground floor; you have the Guinness shop and this is where your journey starts.
First floor;Brewing/Copperage/Transport.
Second floor; Taste Experience, be prepared for a wait, but is worth the wait, as you will gain the knowledge of how to truly enjoy your sample of Guinness.
Third floor; Guinness Advertising; Excellent exhibits to view.
Forth floor; The Guinness academy, you can practice the art of pouring, again be prepared to wait, but well worth it, to master the art of the Guinness pint.
Firth floor; Guinness food and experience; Coffee shop/restaurant, and a bar with live music, worth a visit to relax.
Sixth floor; The Gravity bar, what can i say, the views are breathtaking, as you get a panoramic view of Dublin.

Excellent attraction, this will keep you entertained for a few hours. Taxi's and horse drawn carriages are just outside to take you anywhere in Dublin.
