GUINNESS STOREHOUSE(R), Ireland's No. 1 visitor attraction is a "must see" on any visit to Dublin. Housed in an old fermentation plant in the heart of St James's Gate Brewery, the now seven-storey visitor experience tells the story of Ireland's iconic drink and beings to life the heritage of this world famous beer. Your journey begins standing at the bottom of the world's largest pint glass, which rises through the building. It is a dramatic story that begins over 250 years ago and ends in Gravity(R) Bar, Dublin's highest bar where you will receive a complimentary pint of GUINNESS(R) while enjoying spectacular views over Dublin.

Been 4 times before. Self guided tour but watch you don't spend your voucher pouring the perfect pint or you won't get one in the Skybar. Always wish they'd include 2 pints on the tour. Gift shop isn't stupidly overpriced which is refreshing.

We recently toured the Guinness factory. It is a well laid out your. Lots of history of the brewery. The Gravity bar was the highlight. Very interesting that the tallest building in Ireland is the brewery. Even higher than the Churches. How very Irish!

Although this is a big tourist trap and is pricey to enter, it's still fun and it was great for buying chachkis to bring back to the US. We particularly enjoyed learning about the history of Guinness and especially the sensory experience. That was definitely a highlight of the visit. When we were there the top floor with the 360...

Expensive and extremely impersonal. Essentially you walk around reading very generic information about the beer-making process. The components of the tour with audio components were extremely hard to hear. My advice would be to save your money and go buy some Guinness in a Dublin pub!!

If you've been to a brewery tour before, this one will be sorely disappointing. You don't actually get to see the production side of things, simply videos of the production. Basically, you overpay for a beer and a good view of Dublin at the end.

Disappointing. At €18 we expected more than a superficial "tour" squeezed into a marketing exercise. If you do decide to go, be aware that the crowds in the summer season are intense. There are more enjoyable places to quaff your Guinness!

They will show you how they do their famous Guinness beer in Dublin. It's very nice to visit, although it's more designed for you to try their new beers and buy souvenirs..photo booth available to add your photo to one of their historic ads!

Guiness charges 16 euros for a self guided tour, giving you 1 free beer at the end in a horribly overcrowded bar with no where to sit. As far as brewery tours go, this is very generic, not overly interesting, and only mildly informative. The 7th floor lounge has the potential to be lovely, you can see the whole city... More
