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.

My husband, toddler and I went through this tour and loved it! Right from the start the staff was very accommodating about the fact that we had a stroller, and we were lead to elevators to make getting tickets, and starting the tour easier. There are 7 floors, each connected by escalator, but if your group has a wheel chair... More

Very informative tour, very good beer (who knew there was more to drinking it that gulping it down??) and the views from the gravity bar were out of this world. An added bonus is you even get to learn to pour the perfect pint!

Not a big fan of beer but went to see since it is a large part of the recent history of Dublin and Guinness from Ireland is famous all over the world. The beer making process is explained very creatively. It was overcrowded when we visited. Is on hop-on hop-off route. The visit itself feels too touristy and commercialised though.

Wow, guiness storehouse was fantastic. We enjoyed the freedom to be able to walk around without a structired tour because the way everything was set out it was easy to follow the correct paths. The pint pouring lesson was great, our guy was really nice and friendly. The only thing I had to deduct a point for was that I... More

Really loved the process of seeing how the Guinness is made. Its very interesting to see and I especially loved pouring my own pint of Guinness (a first for me) absolutely loved it and would definitely recommend. The gift store has a great variety and isn't any more expensive than other gift shops

The Factory is a very comercial one, It is very obvious made with the marketing scope. It is nice And interesting for young people, because you can SEE there interesting information. It is easy to Go there, from Temple bar we spent around 10-15 minutes, walk.

Loved the museum and the fact that they taught us how to serve our own beer! The bus transport is good and easy so no problem with that! And go up the bar to have an amazing view of dublin!

We thought this would be a great stop off point on our bus trip round the city, but in truth, we found it disappointing and very expensive. We wondered round, and the place left you in no doubt what a wonderful man Arthur Guinness was, but we still didnt have a clue how they made " the black stuff "... More

I want to start by saying that I am not a Guinness drinker BUT I have been converted. I wanted to visit the Guinness factory because many people have told me it's great and they're not wrong. Me and my partner went in July. It's a must when visiting Dublin! It's interesting and you get many chances throughout the visit... More

This self guided tour is really informative and the pint at the top is the best I have tasted. We went online that morning and booked so we could get a discount, worth doing as it saved us €4 and we went straight in no queuing.
