The BEST thing you can do in Dublin. Private tasting experience in hidden bar. You get to sample different Guinness beer and learn about the history behind the family and the individual beers. Well worth the price.

I have done this twice in less than a year and it is a wonderful experience. The history of Arthur Guinness and his beer journey is something not to be missed. The storehouse is awesome and huge - this experience allows you the chance to remove yourself from the crowds and have a great personal experience in the quiet of the private bar. Even though you have a time restraint you never feel rushed or cheated of an amazing experience. The guides who conduct this are knowledgeable, witty, and fun. Thanks for another great experience and for getting to try the 4 different beers!

This was our first tour hours after landing in Dublin and it was the perfect way to start our trip. The conneisseur experience is SO WORTH the extra money. The ample tastings you get and the variety of Guiness types you drink and learn about make it worth it. The Guiness Storehouse is really busy even in November. This tasting has only 12 poeple and the 'bar tender' was knowledgeable and funny. I found a guiness I like, as there are over 20 types! A wonderful experience.

This is a MUST do experience - the Connoisseur tour at least. the individual approach, how to pour, how to drink, the history and current presence of Guinness in the Marketplace.

Much, much, much better than trying to just self guide through the brewery that's totally chaotic and set up in a non-linear and difficult to follow way. THe Connoisseur experience is fabulous. Small group - 16 people in a private bar area. You taste 4 beers and are guided through the tasting by an expert. Then, you get to learn to pour a draft Guinness the correct way and of course, you get to drink the pint you poured. Really informative and lots of fun.

If you fancy yourself any kind of Guinness consumption expert you should not miss this private bar experience. An affable barkeep will escort you into a private bar within the Guinness complex and regale you with Guinness lore. You can also consume up to six different Guinness stouts and porters in an hour and a half. I poured all the draught I wanted from a keg just opened 15 minutes before. So pony up and do this and get some real Guinness in ya.

This was a great tour and I've already recommended it to a few friends. The Guinness Storehouse is a wonderful museum in itself. Add to that a tasting of Guinness beers in a private bar and lessons on how to pour the perfect Guinness draft - it's a completely wonderful experience! If you are in Dublin for a couple of days you will be happy you added this tour to your itinerary.

The Viator booking was very easy and checking in at the Storehouse was even easier. Skip the lines and you're set up and ready to go in minutes.

This is a great option to beat the lines and get a great sampling of the beers, their history and taste differences. Small groups of 12-15 in a VIP bar setting.
