Allow around 1-2 hours for the tour of the Storehouse. You get to learn about the brewing process, how barrels used to store Guinness were made and you get to taste test a small sample. The tour is across 5 floors with some excellent interactive videos explaining the history of Guinness. There is also a store selling a multitude of... More

We walked to the Storehouse from our hotel in the central tourist district. It was a about a thirty minute walk but easy to find following the signs. At about 15 Euro to get in we hoped we wouldn't be wasting our money. Definitively not! Thank goodness we had plenty of time left in our day. We don't advise you... More

Visited the storehouse (paid Eur 18), and took a tour to see how the Guinness beer is made. Fascinating to see the process, pouring a pint and learning the right way to do that was very interesting. The bar on top floor offered excellent views of city but was totally packed with people

We took the self-guided tour yesterday. Not a huge beer or Guinness fan but when in Dublin...! This place is a well-thought out, commercial outfit designed to show you the history behind the Guiness brand, the family and the beer making process. The tour is self-guided which we didn't mind as it allowed is to speed through areas we weren't... More

Enjoyed my visit. Learned a bit about the brewing process, but my favorite was the Gravity Bar on the top floor. 360 degree view of Dublin! Get your free pint there. You are not able to buy an additional pint at the Gravity Bar, but you can on the next floor down at Arthur's Bar which has craic. I also... More

This is a bit pricey but well worth it. There was SO much to see and learn about Guinness. You get two tastes – one in the middle of the tour and one at the end. The pint at the end was the best tasting Guinness I have ever had. It was very busy with lots of people but I... More

Visited this attraction, on Saturday. It was very busy, but a great atmosphere. Pre-booked on line. Very interesting, even if you don't like Guinness. History, how it's made, pull a pint youself, bonus a pint of Guinness, in the Sky bar. Lovely and cold, wonderful taste. . . . Wonderful views across the City, whilst enjoying your pint. Gift store,... More
