We didn't know what to do that day, and were recommended by our Irish friend to go there. It would have been cheaper and quicker if we had booked online, but we didn't bother. So we had to wait in a around 20-25min. queue. The place is enormous. Lots to see. Lots to do. Lots of places to drink and... More

For full disclosure, I'm not a huge beer fan and am actually allergic. Having said that, THIS PLACE IS SO COOL! I've been to breweries that walk you though how the product is made and here's where we bottle it, etc. but this place is really an experience. There's a waterfall, how Guinness has been transporter through history, how the... More

Believe me, if you like Guinness, just drink it..loads of it. You don't need to come to this museum, which portrays pretty nothing in particular. The queues, and the crowd lead you around and around this "gigantic glass" in the middle of this restructured building, till you reach the top for a view over Dublin and a pint of "free"... More

At first you think the 17euro entry fee is a bit steep, but it does include a voucher for a pint of Guinness so its actually not that bad. From the moment you walk in you can tell that it is going to be a good experience, everything is very, very slick and brilliantly presented... there is the obligatory shop,... More

Visited the Guinness storehouse on a Friday afternoon. We had the hop off bus tickets, so got off here, there was no queue, we walked straight in. Also got 2 euros off the ticket price with our bus tickets. The tour was really good, learnt all of the history of the factory and guinness creator and the brewing process. Then... More

A big empty old store house with a few tv screens and information boards on the wall followed by a pint with admittedly good views from a tap not a hand pull in an extremely over crowded bar. Save yourself time and money by getting the authentic Guinness experience - go to a Dublin pub. Far far better was the... More

This is not a tour of a brewery but a history of the making of the Guinness empire. Was a fabulous visit and was far more than watching bottles go round a conveyer belt. Recommend this to anyone

Such a modern museum! Not boring facts, but really interactive including proper beer tasting on sensual journey, crafting the perfect pint and gravity bar where you can see almost whole Dublin.
