Guinness Storehouse, Dublin

4.0
#1 of 3,464 in Things to do in Ireland
Have a pint of Ireland's favorite beer at Guinness Storehouse, which narrates the history of one of the country's major exports. The old storehouse is the only part of a massive brewery open to the public--its signature attraction is a glass atrium designed to resemble a pint of Guinness. Discover the history of both the historical brewery and the popular brand on the ground floor, and then proceed up through seven more floors that demonstrate everything from the selection of barley and hops to the transportation and advertising of the finished product. Once you reach the top, claim your complimentary pint of the black brew at the storehouse's glass-enclosed bar, which offers panoramic views of the city. Put Guinness Storehouse into our Dublin day trip app to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Dublin.

  • Nice place for discovering the Guinness history. You should definitely buy your ticket online in order to benefit from the discounts.  more »
  • One of the most beautiful places to visit in Dublin. A real experience through the centuries-old history of Guinness. Everything takes place inside a building in the shape of a pint, there are several floors each dedicated to specific topics. It begins with the ingredients and cycles through all stages of production and distribution with the help of audio-video and other multimedia material. Closes the trip a lesson on how to properly pour the beer into the glass.

  • Was thoroughly disappointed. I am a big fan of Guinness but found the "tour" to be poor at best. First off, at no point do you actually get to see where the beer is made. Additionally, the building was incredibly crowded and completely devoid of any organization. There were no tour guides taking you through the exhibit and or keeping people moving. Plan to wait an additional hour in lines for the most interesting parts. That said, the view from the top was tremendous... if you don't mind looking over the hundreds of other people between you and said view. The only positive attribute I found was how delicious the Guinness was.
  • I love this place. Truly. It is a tourist spot for sure, but they have made it accessible even with crowds and personal. The tasting experience is awesome, and the self guided tour allows you to flow at your own pace. My only complaint is that if you are the last tour they don't warn you when the tower closes so we could barely finish our pints. I've been twice, and both times are worth it.
  • Correct: this ain't a brewery tour. Its self guided and self paced for the first part. Truth be told, if you don't like the Guinness name, you will be disappointed. We went for the free points and...well...if you come to Dublin and don't go, people will think you're crazy. Because the pints were free, the wife tried a Guinness for the first time. Surprisingly, she liked it. While I wouldn't rate this a five, it's not really a one either. We liked the history and the beer, so it gets four stars. Someone else recommend the Jameson tour for the how-to, and they are right, but the samples there are so much smaller. Heck, do both...
  • I've been there twice, and I enjoyed the second time as much as the first. Definitely one of my favourite places in Dublin. It's a bit pricey to get in but absolutely worth it. At the end of the tour you can get a free pint in the rooftop bar, which is amazing with 360 degree panoramic view of the city. Great experience from the beginning till the end.
  • I am not really a big fan of beer, but I admire their commercial and their those video played in the storehouse tour. I did rent the audio guide, so I feel like I know things more. Audio guide is 1euro per person. With your entree ticket, you get your free cup of drink.

Where to stay in Dublin

Dublin offers everything from luxury hotels to eclectic guesthouses. Explore over 1,000 years of history in the city on foot by staying at one of the hotels or hostels in the city center. The south side of the river has always been a popular place to stay, particularly near Temple University or the tourist nightlife center Temple Bar, but a new crop of attractive options has popped up on the north side as well. For more affordable accommodations, try a hostel or make your way toward St. Stephen's Green for a more comfortable stay at a mid-range hotel. If the artistic spirit of Dublin is what beckoned you, spend your holiday in a guesthouse near the creative Lower Gardiner Street.
