I had such a great time and I'm not that big of a beer drinker. After the tour, I had a chance to sit down with a great pint, listen to live Irish music and see some Irish dance. Fantastic!

The $18 admission includes a self-guided tour and a free pint of Guinness. Just to set expectations up front, the tour is NOT of an actual brewery. It's more of a museum that takes you chronologically through the process of making a pint of Guinness. Having been on actual brewery tours before, I know the basic process, but I did... More

The admission tax is high (€16.20 adult). It includes a "free" pint at the end, but if you are a teetotaler, the admission is the same. Even students under 18 pay €12. The Gravity Bar on the top floor has a 360º view of Dublin through it's glass walls, but it was so crowded, we couldn't move at all. No... More

I know this is a must do in Dublin. After doing the tour at Smithwick's, there was no need to do the Guinness tour. It was an expensive pint. Go to the seventh floor for the view. I wonder if the Guinness plant in Nigeria is such a commercial cash cow?!

This is the best beer museum I have been to and I have been to few. My girlfriend hates beer and she loved this place. The tour gives you and insight int history of beer and of course Guinness, history of their marketing, advertising and so much more.

A great tour showing you how this wonderful beverage is brewed is followed by a chance to learn how to pour your own Guinness! Then, you get to take that beer up to the Gravity Bar atop the Storehouse. A 360 degree view of the city of Dublin and the Wicklow Mountains in the distance makes for a great experience.... More

If you visit Dublin you just have to go here, its a must do and my partner and I loved it! Firstly, the price for the tickets are really reasonable, it's so interesting learning about the history of Guinness and the staff are really friendly. It is a self guided tour so you can do it at your own pace... More

I didn't rate this as tours go. The displays were ok without being anything world class. I would have loved to know more about what the Guinness family did for ireland

Always worth a visit. Within 29 minutes walk from city. It's changed as once you saw the ale being made but now it's more of a modern exhibition. The sampling & the pouring was great. Food looked lovely and was reasonable.
