Visiting Guinness is a must when in Dublin. The tour takes you through the art of beer making, but what really stands out is how they teach you to drink the ruby red elixir. Previously I've not been fond of Guinness but learning how to drink it properly made me a new fan.

Large building full of everything to do with Guiness from its ingredients to its old advertising ads, lots of good interaction areas. The Gravity bar with a 360 view over Dublin was a really good place to enjoy a Guiness (free with entrance ticket)

we had a lovely tasting on the tour for 16 people in the private bar. hasni was a very knowledgable host. you get to taste 4 of their beers and learn about them. this small tour made it so much more enjoyable than the mass tours that were taking place as we were in our own private bar. you get...

My wife and I visited Dublin last week mainly to see Edd Sheran at Croke Park, as we stayed for two days we did the normal sightseeing tours, one was the Red Bus tour which we would recommend, part of the tour recommended a visit to Guinness Storehouse - we are so pleased that we went. My first advice is... More

I have been on several microbrewery tours and some bigs like Anheuser Busch, but nothing compares to Guinness. It was 7 floors of truly amazing and technology. I love that the tours are self guided and you can stay for as long or little as you like. Yes, it is very crowded, but it isn't unbearable. My favorite part of... More

A must if visiting Ireland, and walking in, down between the towering warehouses sets the scene well. This is a self guided tour and as we went early(early bird ticket on line was cheaper) they were not too many people around, but it did fill up quickly. You wander at your own pace through the brewing process, and then through... More

I'm a big fan of Guinness so I absolutely loved this tour. The complimentary pint of Guinness in the Gravity Bar was one of the best I've ever tasted. A good tour for anyone.

Not quite sure what to expect, we were bowled over by the experience. Yes, at times it has an air of Disney about it, but it is so well done with Irish charm and gives a greater insight into the 250 year history and significance of this iconic Irish brand than any brewery tour I have done before. The views... More

Very imposing building, and a good 10 minute walk from getting off bus. Inside it has 7 floors and it's a museum that you take in at your leisure unlike the Jamisons Distillery, where you have a guided tour. In light of this it can get a bit boring, however the top floor is to die for. A full 360... More

As my title says, this is undoubtedly a gimmicky tour, but they do it very well and it is certainly an impressive operation. My favorite was the floor with the history of their advertising/marketing; there were some quirky displays and creative exhibits with the icons of Guinness (the toucan, fish on a bike, etc.). At the bars/lounges within the storehouse,... More
