Always wanted to visit Guinness, and finally got the chance. Had a couple of people advise that the lines are terrific, and it's just another brewery tour. So I did some research and found the Connoisseur Tasting. It's a little over 54 per person, but well worth it.
First, there's no line. You purchase the tix ahead of time, and go right up after checking in. Next, you're in a group of only about 16 people. After waiting in a private area in the Academy, you're taken to a private tasting room.
The atmosphere there is excellent, and inviting. It's like an old-school gentleman's club. You're taken through a tasting of 4 different Guinness selections, then taught how to draw the perfect glass of Guinness.
Afterwards, you can wander around the Storehouse at your leisure. Visit restaurants, the gift shop, the Gravity Bar a must see, and then take in the regular brewery tour included when you're ready. It's a great way to spend an afternoon, and the ONLY way to see Guinness. Otherwise you'll wind up standing in line, for what is really just another brewery tour.
Loved this tour! Didn't realize when I booked it, that I had purchased such a swanky tour, but I was so glad I did! This tour takes you into a special tasting room and allows you to taste and learn the history of several Guinness varieties. Well worth the price for what you get in both beer and experience!
Now that we have done the tour we realise what an experience it really was we loved every minute of it and to top it all we had a great crowd of young people to share the experience with loved it
This was one of the best tours that we have ever taken. We skipped all of the lines and were treated wonderfully. We really enjoyed the personal service and small group experience. The beers were so fresh that there wasn't a single variety we didn't like!
Definitely worth the cost. A private tasting with 15 other people in a beautiful room. Interesting facts given as well.

Absolutelt fantastic, would highly reccommend!
This is the best way to sample all the Guinness factory has to offer. Loved it!
Super fun, make sure to eat before : I was stuffing my face with a sandwich 2 min before due to a late flight.
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.
