The cabs were lined up and the tour buses kept this attraction full the entire time we visited. I thought it was interesting and well-planned out. We ate lunch in the cafe, and the dish of steak and Guinness stew was enormous. Two of us shared and it was very filling. The gravity bar at the top was fun, and... More

Big, loud and to expensive. Admission is €18 and all you get is a walk up the stairs to a great glasslounge with a wiew of the city. Really nice but you can't stay after you drink your €18 'free' pint.... If you know how beer is made go to the pub instead and you can have 4 pints instead... More

We enjoyed seeing the building renovation, the recreated factory tour showing how Guinness is made and we loved the free beer in the Gravity Lounge. If you like beer this is a must for your trip. If you aren't a big beer aficionado, there are just too many other things to see that are one of a kind to include... More

On vacation in Dublin Sept 2014 we went for a tour of the famous Guiness Beer factory. It was the best tour, of this kind, that we have ever been to. After the tour you go upstairs to a 360 degree views of all of Dublin in a glass enclosed bar with free Guiness beer, on the negative it is... More

Lovely view from the Glasshouse. We had a pint of Guinness each & we took photos of the lovely surrounds.

This tour and experience was wonderful. The visit to the storehouse is incredibly well done, laid out in a way that perfectly tells the story of the family and business, and interactive with lots of opportunity for participation. Learning to taste and pour our own Guinness was a highlight. A wonderful place!

We have loved the Kentucky Bourbon tours, which most are free, and learned a lot about distilling. The Guinness tour was very expensive for just shuffling a lot of people around in a huge building where you have to stop and read about the process and educate yourself. At the end you do get a pint of Guinness, which I... More

Great place to visit as a local. Gives you a good exposure to the history of Guinness in Dublin and the success enjoyed around the world. Gravity bar gives the best view of Dublin on a clear day. One thing I'd like to see is some of the actual brewing process first hand. Everything you see is a museum, it... More

This was a great experience. Not only did I get to enjoy a Guinness right there in the plant, I was taught how craft it perfectly. This is an experience that I truly enjoyed both drug and after the class.

It goes without saying that visiting the Guinness Storehouse is a fantastic experience... One piece of advise, though. If you plan to hit the gift shop or engrave a pint glass for yourselves, do it at the beginning of your tour. It will only get better from there. We enjoyed an amazing tour of the storehouse, and decided to buy... More
