Skip the Line Guinness Storehouse Signature Package and Gift Box
, Nov 2019
My husband was more into this than me (he's a Guinness fan; I don't drink beer) but we both had a great time. The building you tour is more of a museum than a brewery but it's fun and informative. And at the top is a 360 degree view of the city that you can enjoy with your "free" (included) glass of Guinness.
It was an interesting tour showing how Guiness is made, but you don't actually see the real thing. It's a multi media show. The Gravity bar had a fabulous view of the city, and I think the free pint is why most people go on this tour. The gift shop is huge and they will ship your purchases back to the US.
