Definitely a good tourist venue, but as a 'local' it was my first time. OK experience overall, if a little pricey for what is essentially a "figure it out yourself" tour. The pint at the top of the house was good, but then I was expecting no less. I can't really give it 4 stars, but it's absolutely worth doing.

We went to the Storehouse using the hop-on, hop-off bus that stops by the door. My wife was not particularly looking forward to the visit, but we both enjoyed it immensely. Although there were plenty of people there, it is so large that it never seemed crowded. We also did not suffer long queues to get in (as others seem... More

Had the tour of the place, had a couple of pints of Guinness, and what else to make it all Irish if not an Irish stew at the source of Guinness. Loved it and want to visit again.

While it is a touristy spot and you don't actually get to see the actual brewery (Although the storehouse is on the actual brewery grounds) this is a must see for anybody visiting Dublin. Book in advance to get a few Euros off (14.50 compared to 18.00.....It's an open ticket, so you can go at anytime) The tour itself is... More

What a fun self guided tour. Got on the Hop on Hop off bus, that takes you right to the front door. Learned to poor a pint the right way and enjoyed the cold pint in the Gravity Bar at the top, with 360 degree views. Great way to spend the afternoon. Plenty of cabs right outside when finished.

This place is a self guided tour. Well that's is fine for some people for me personally it is boring. The gravity bar was a lot of fun with awesome energy. Had is not been for this being included in a week long tour I would have probably not bothered with this attraction due to its price.

This is definitely a tourist destination. This five-story building is designed to accommodate lots of tourists at once. I'm glad we had made a reservations in advance, so we got to bypass the long lines waiting to purchase tickets. Overall, it was simply a self--guided walk up several floors, that demonstrated the whole process of making Guinness. At the end,... More

We visited the Guinness Storehouse in October 2014 and it was definitely one of the best attractions in Dublin. The story is easy to follow and the use of technology to tell the story makes it very interactive and interesting. The view from the galaxy bar on level 7 is a great way to finish with a cold pint of... More

We went on a work 'weekend out' and this place was stunning. What a great tour, you learn the history, you get to see the amazing advertising synonymous with Guinness. You get a pint at the roof after the tour! Wow what a view! Don't think about it, go to this!
