First of all, the buildings were amazing. Many old buildings were still used today buy adding, refurbishing, and remodeling. You could feel the old days, how it was like. They kept the original production plant and turned it into the museum. Imagine how much planningshould went to design the flow of the tour. What impressed me was that not only... More

This is one of the places you have to visit when in Dublin. Lots of things to keep you interested from the ground floor up and there are lots of Guinness souvenirs that are quite reasonable. Enjoyed the experience but would recommend two visits to take in all there is to see.

Just one of the many places you can visit while on one of the city tour hop on-hop of buses. This is a must though it is a bit expensive especially if you do not drink guiness. After entering you visit the gift shop and have a look around the exhibitions then make your own way up to the roof... More

Very entertaining and informative. Reasonable value. Visited with my Dad and two teenage children (15 and 19) we all enjoyed the Guinness experience.

For us this was a must-see attraction. How could we go to the home of Guinness without seeing where it all started. It was fascinating from start to finish and we truly learned lots about the technicalities of brewing and storing Guinness in an entertaining way. I'm sure there is something for everyone to enjoy about this attraction.

This was good, but not great! Entry was speedy, and then you're into a self guided tour which explains the brewing process, a few exhibitions etc, then up to the bar for a pint. Personally, I think more could be made of the tour, perhaps more interaction/quizzes etc, but I guess its one you can't miss when in Dublin!

My friends and I took a trip to Ireland late summer early fall and stopped by this brewery and had some amazing times. Learn how to properly pour a Guinness. This was a very long tour and extremely educational. Can't wait to go back to this beautiful country.

While the ticket is quite expensive, it does include a tasting session and a free pint on the 6th floor, where a 360 bar is. This is just a museum, you don't get to see any of the actual factory, which was a bit of a let-down. Tour takes about 1.5h. Recommend for a rainy day in dublin

Few people appreciate the brewing process, regardless if you are a beer consumer or not. Our beer consumption is during international travel, circumventing potential poor water qualities, so this was a must see. This Guinness production Storehouse is the largest Independent beer producer in the world, and We were very impressed with their precise process for ultimate quality, and consistency.... More
