Skip the Line: Guinness Connoisseur Taste Experience at the Guinness Storehouse

Guinness- Connoisseur Taste Experience at Dublin's Guinness Storehouse

Step inside Guinness Storehouse in Dublin, and head to the Guinness Connoisseur Experience – a luxurious lounge tucked away on the attraction’s 4th floor. Meet your personal Guinness connoisseur – an expert Guinness guide – and then sit down for your 75-minute tasting session.

As your guide explains Guinness' history, characteristics and quirks, learn how the legendary Irish stout has come to be one of the most successful beer brands around the world. While explaining the different brands and the pouring ‘rituals’ needed to achieve a perfect head, your guide will pour four samples for you to try: Guinness Draft, Guinness Extra Stout, Guinness Foreign Extra and Guinness Black Lager.

Enjoy the creaminess of the draft beer, poured fresh from a tap in the bar, and contrast its smooth flavor with the rich chocolate-like tones of the extra stout. Savor the full-bodied notes of Guinness Foreign Extra and hear how it’s brewed with extra hops and barley to give it a more bitter bite. The fourth sample – black lager – is a cold-brewed version of the classic Irish stout that was only launched in 2012.

At the end of your tasting session, pick your favorite stout and enjoy a pint of it while relaxing with your group. Before leaving the room, your guide will give you a Guinness souvenir to take home, and then point you in the right direction to explore Guinness Storehouse at leisure. The museum is huge, with seven floors of memorabilia and interactive exhibitions that document the brew's history, production and Irish appeal! Finish up with a visit to the Gravity bar, enjoying great views over Dublin as well as another complimentary pint of Guinness draft.

Fantastic. Worth the money. The person doing the taste experience did an excellent job. He knew the product, could answer all questions, was a pro at what he did.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

Great tour- had a wonderful time with this experience. Be prepared - you will drink a lot of beer and it will all be good. I would recommend this to anyone who likes beer, likes Guinness, or who just wants to hear about the history of the beer! Well worth the extra money to get to sit around a private bar with a small group and enjoy a more relaxed atmosphere.

We received this tour as a gift on our honeymoon and thought it was absolutely fabulous! We would highly recommend it to others! It is definitely worth it and we got to sample lots of Guinness and even take some home with us!

Loved it, the food was good, the people were great but the hotels did not have air conditioning.

If you enjoy beer - you HAVE to do the Connoisseur experience. The amount of beer you get to sample alone is worth the money, not to mention the great stories and information you learn during the experience. You get 5-6 samples of different Guinness beer each sample being a half-pint! plus free drink tickets and at the end you get to pour your own Guinness! I love beer and had a great time at this tour. I went with my friend who likes beer enough, but is not necessarily a beer-person, and she agreed that this was an amazing experience. I would highly recommend to anyone wanting more than just a 'basic' Guinness experience.

Much better than a self guided tour, the private tasting bar was a blast
