Guinness is synonymous with Ireland and no visit to Dublin is complete without a trip to the Guinness Storehouse – the home of Guinness.
Located in the heart of the legendary St. James’s Gate Brewery in Dublin, this production site has been home to the Guinness Brewery since 1759, when Arthur Guinness signed a lease for 9,000 years. It was once the fermentation plant of the brewery and is now a seven-storey visitor experience dedicated to the history of the making of this world-famous beer.
Here you will discover what goes into the making of each and every pint, and learn about this incredible brand’s history stretching more than 250 years. As you make your way through the impressive storehouse, discover the age-old art of brewing that makes Guinness so distinctive; visit the tasting rooms, a multisensory tasting experience designed to help you appreciate the distinctive taste of the iconic stout, from the very first velvet sip to the last lingering drop. You can learn how to pour the perfect pint in the Guinness Academy or upgrade to enjoy samples of the four most popular variants, with an intimate tasting experience with the Connoisseur Experience.
The highlight for many visitors is the Gravity Bar, symbolically the ‘Head of the Pint”, where visitors can enjoy unparalleled panoramic views of Dublin city – views that are all the better with a complimentary pint in hand. Visit https://www.guinness-storehouse.com/en
