812 Reviews
The Guinness Storehouse, one of Ireland’s top visitor attractions, draws travelers from all corners of the world who want to see the birthplace of the famed dark beer and get a taste straight from the barrel.

The Basics
The 7-story, pint glass-shaped interior of the Guinness brewery and storehouse features a multimedia experience that includes interactive exhibits and demonstrations of the brewing process. On the self-guided tour, learn the history behind the legendary stout and check out vintage ads. Touch the barley, smell the hops, and learn the art of pouring a perfect pint, plus get a peek into the history of Guinness advertising. After getting familiar with the main ingredients in Guinness, learn about the brewing process and the variations that are on the market. Floors two through six take you back in time to discover the history behind Arthur Guinness, the company, and the Guinness Storehouse itself. On the ground floor, visit the retail store for Guinness-themed souvenirs.

At the top-floor, glass-enclosed Gravity Bar, the culmination of the seven-story visitor experience, line up to claim your free pint of Guinness to enjoy with 360-degree views over the brewery and the city of Dublin. Some tours and tickets offer skip-the-line privileges, allowing you to bypass the (sometimes long) queue.
