The Guiness Connoisseur Tasting is the only way to visit and experience the Storehouse. It is a personal, intimate way to learn the history of Guiness, but an even better way to learn about and taste the past and present of the beers. Sitting in a private bar with a small group, the beers were individually poured out, or straight from a fresh keg of Guiness. We were instructed how to pour a perfect pint of beer and then did it ourself.
It was one of the highlights of our trip to Ireland and worth every penny.
This was an excellent experience. Great fun to learn about the history and get to taste some of the not so common brews. Then to get to learn to pour a perfect pint. Very enjoyable.
This was the best tour ever. You go to a private VIP bar with a Connoisseur who spends an hour and a half educating you on the different beers that they make. You get to sample beers, pour a beer and get a free beer voucher for the awesome sky bar. Don't hesitate and purchase ASAP, you won't regret it.
Many people online recommended skipping the Guinness Storehouse tour, but we decided to take the Connoisseur Taste Experience and we're glad we did. While it was a little more expensive than the regular tours it turned out to be a much more personable experience. Just a group of 12 tourists with a Guinness connoisseur in the private tasting room. I think we got much more out of it than just getting to taste the beer. We really learned about the history and how this beveridge shaped Ireland. We highly recommend it.
I highly recommend this tour for everyone! The connoisseur experience is the way to experience the Guinesss Storehouse!
If you love Guinness it is a must. If you do not love Guinness it is still a must. The history along with the tastings are great. It is well worth the extra money compared to the normal tour.
Would not have missed it for the world. The lady bartender was very interesting and informative.
This was a great experience. We had a private tasting/information session of about 2 hours with 16 others in a private bar. It was informative, fun and well worth the cost.
This was the highlight of our trip. We had a learning experience as well as fun learning how to make the perfect pour of Guinness draft. The host was provided us with much information about the beers brewed by Guinness, including the history and how they rated in total sales. The comparative tasting of each beer was educational. We were given a bottle of our favorite to take with us and our perfect pour draft. This experience was OUTSTANDING and it gave us the chance to seat in comfortable quiet surroundings rather than having to push and shove through the masses to reach the bar at the top of the Storehouse. If we return to Dublin, we would repeat this experience.
Best way to experience Guinness at the storehouse. We were in a private bar with only 15 people other people and had a dedicated guide that discussed the history of Guinness, poured tastings of Guinness not usually available and you learned to pour your own pint. It was great fun. If you book the last 2 tours, go a few hours early to tour the actual facility. otherwise, you are limited in time and the restaurants are closed afterwards.
unfortunately, there was a rude and noisy group included with us.
Kevin was so informative and the experience was once in a life time. If you love Guinness this is a must do!!!
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.
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
Loved the tour. If you are interested in how Guinness is made you will love it. Our instructor was excellent. He truly loves his job. He was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable regarding the details of the Guinness brand.
