About
Guinness Storehouse, 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.

Cant come to Dublin and not visit
Jul 2020
If you're coming to Dublin you have to visit the Storehouse. Really interesting, fantastic facts and the view of Dublin from the 360 sky bar is worth it.
The Guinness cant taste any better.

Beautiful, many instagram fodder exhibits

Took my wife here for her birthday before dinner. Very informative, and being in advertising and marketing, she loved the vintage ads! Once the sun goes down, the Gravity Bar has probably the best view of the city. Staff was lovely too.

Learn how one of the world's favorite drinks is made.

Guinness Storehouse adjoins the St James's Gate Brewery. Your tour will include an explanation of how Guinness is brewed. You tour will conclude with a tasting at the Gravity Bar, where there is a magnificent view over Dublin. The recipe for this flavorsome stout was perfected by Arthur Guinness in 1759; it is now one of the world's most popular alcoholic beverages.

Engaging for all..even those who don't like Guinness
Feb 2020
A very informative experience that is definitely designed to be engaging for tourists whilst also providing information. I'm not a Guinness fan, but enjoyed the experience, and it's definitely worth a visit. When we went it was very busy so I was glad to have pre-purchased our tickets.

Overwhelmed and satisfied
Feb 2020
I was truly overwhelmed by the scale of this place. The building is huge, has several floors and each is dedicated to Guinness beer. I spent quality time there, learned a lot about the beer brewing process and the history of Guinness. Everything is described in detail; interactive installations constitute a valuable addition. Unique ambiance with the visible industrial inner workings makes the visit even more enjoyable. Although it is a touristic and pricey place, you know what you pay for. Halfway through, there is a tasting bar and the views from the sky bar on the top floor are probably the best in Dublin. Have you ever watched Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory? It is pretty much the equivalent for beer lovers. A must visit in Dublin.

Nice to visit only once
Dec 2020
Not sure if we will visit it again.
We visited the museum and winter village. I would say it's not a museum, there are several floors with information about the beer. There is also a bar, restaurant, and shop.
But we did not like the fact that while visiting part of the interactive items just were not working. I would like to know if the full exposition is working before buying the ticket. Also, the audio guide was not available. I believe it's because of COVID situation, so we just walked.
The winter village was beautiful.

Great city views from the bar
Feb 2020
The trip up the elevator to the second floor is visually stunning. The tour itself only involved a couple of minutes with a speaker, then was self-guided, so it was just OK. Interesting material, but a lot of stuff to read on the walls versus a tour guide speaking, which I always prefer. Definitely go to the bar on the top floor and have a Guinness. It is definitely true that it tastes much better/smoother in Ireland because they don't have to do the shipping process involved for other countries.

Great visit
Dec 2020 • Couples
Great thing to do whether you’re a tourist or from Dublin. You get an in depth tour of how Guinness is produced. Even during these times, the tour goes ahead while considering all safety measures. However, it is quite hard to hear the tour guide due to masks and surrounding noise. Would also be great if you actually got to see the real factory production of Guinness while visiting. The tour is worth the money as you get two free pints included.
