I enjoyed the information on the self guided tour but it was crowded and a bit repetitive. The... More

I personally was not bothered about doing this visit, but travelling with my 20 something son, was duty bound! However, was so glad I did, really enjoyable day, just didn't manage to drink a whole pint at the end of the visit, though my son had no problem! We got there on one of the "hop on hop off" buses,which... More

A few people in our party had already visited the Guinness Storehouse on a previous trip, but all of our party enjoyed our recent experience. Very interesting and insightful into the making/brewing and history of Guinness. We especially loved the tasting session (even if we didn't all enjoy the actual Guinness) and the highlight was being able to pull your... More

If you love Guinness or beer, this is a must stop. There is also a restaurant inside featuring foods using Guinness. For example, I had Guinness beef stew. You can learn to correctly pour a Guinness or receive a free Guinness at the roof top glass enclosed bar. This offers a panoramic view of Dublin and is not to be... More

We went because we felt like we had to, but I've very glad we did. The exhibits are informative, the free pint is definitely a plus, and the food and views are great. It definitely helps to order your tickets online ahead of time! We spent a lot more time here than expected, easily several hours including lunch.

An interesting insight into Guinness and its background. There's a soft drink for kids and a pint for the adults with a great view over the city. We liked that this was self guided so we could take our own route and time. There is also a good restaurant for lunch.

I am not a beer fan and even less of Guinness, but when one comes to Ireland, it is impossible to leave the country without visiting this place to fully understand the country … I was just expecting to visit a “normal” museum of the Guinness brewery history, but I must say that I was impressed by the way the...

We were surprised how much we enjoyed this attraction. The exhibits were informative and interesting. Loved the tasting area and learning how to pour a real pint. The view from the top was great on a clear day

What are people experiencing here that I missed out on entirely, because I don't understand so many 5 star reviews??! This place was so highly rated and seems such a landmark, we decided to go and wasted an entire morning here. It started off alright. We were with a baby and were pushing a stroller/pram. They pulled us from the... More

Went with another couple. Was very interesting and the Gravity bar was lovely with a great view over Dublin. Nice place to spend a couple of hours. Book your tickets online in advance and save some money.
