Checked out the museum as part of our trip to see England play rugby. Really informative and well set out. We ate lunch on the 5th floor, which was delicious and well presented. Would recommend a visit

After a long wait in the queue outside in the cold we went through the doors to find another long queue inside. Probably queued an hour. I'd suggest a morning visit to avoid queuing. The storehouse tour is in the old brewing factory and has a lot of old machinery and advertisements. It's an ok tour but you do it... More

Firstly pre-book tickets on Guinness Storehouse website, recieve a discount but more importantly avoid a queue to buy tickets on entry. As noted by another reviewer, the tour is very digitised, authentic videos of making casks were fascinating but the others were ok & could have been a lot better. A guided tour of the actual working factory would have... More

So you are in Dublin for the first time and Guinness Storehouse is a must. But would the teenagers do there as they too young for beer. With these doubts in mind we headed to Guinness Storehouse. Next thing we all realized is we have just spend more than 4 hours, enjoying every single attraction offered. And this includes even... More

Due to bad weather we changed our plans at the last moment and decided to visit the Storehouse early one Sunday morning. This turned out to be a great time to visit as there were no queues or crowds and we could wander around at leisure. Sad that the Advertisement section was closed as this was the part of the...

Whilst over in Dublin visiting my best mate Paul, we decided to visit here again, as it had been 5 or so years since our last visit. The tour has changed since we were last here, but is still very enjoyable. Dublin's view from the top of the factory is amazing, and sipping your Guinness while the world passes you... More

Tour is all digital - you don't actually get shown round by anyone, there are just screen and bits of text around the building. The advertisement section was closed for renovation which is one v important part of the Guinness brand. The free pint in the Gravity Bar was brilliant and the guy who lead our group at the Academy... More

I live in Dublin and I've visited the storehouse several times over more than a decade (I was even on the old tour in the premises next-door before it moved to their current premises). I visited most-recently on 21st Feb 2015. The section given over to their advertising campaigns is closed for renovation at the moment. This is a shame... More
