Guinness Storehouse

Every capital city has its iconic buildings and 'must-see' attractions. Guinness is synonymous with Ireland .

To many Dublin is the heart and soul of Ireland, and Guinness is at the heart of the city itself. So a trip to this vibrant capital is not complete without a visit to the home of Guinness and Ireland’s number one visitor attraction – Guinness Storehouse.

Housed in an old fermentation plant, this seven story visitor experience tells the history of the making of this world famous beer. It is a dramatic story that begins over 250 years ago and ends in Gravity Bar where visitors receive a complimentary pint of Guinness while relaxing and enjoying spectacular views over Dublin.

This £30million visitor experience brings to life one of the world's most iconic brands. Located at the heart of St. James’s Gate Brewery, the seven floors are designed around a central glass atrium mirroring the shape of a pint of Guinness. Floor by floor, visitors take a surprising journey through the past, present and future of the world’s greatest beer. They discover the ingredients, the process, the time, the craft and the passion that goes into every pint.

Since opening in November 2000, Guinness Storehouse has attracted over 4 million visitors from every corner of the globe. Its grand design and unique features continue to excite and intrigue as well as ensuring that visitors return time and again. A favourite with every visitor is the Gravity bar - located above the roof (in the head of the pint glass), Gravity® is the highest bar in Dublin. While relaxing with their pint, visitors can sit back and enjoy uninterrupted 360º panoramic views across Dublin City and its hinterland. Up to 100 lucky visitors each week are now actually able to “Start the Brew” of Guinness® themselves by operating a computer that is scheduled on the same timetable as the Brew House.

A state of the art Tasting Laboratory also forms part of the new Brewing Experience where visitors can taste Guinness® from the Keg Line and, with the assistance of the Guinness® Storehouse professional Tasting Team, learn how to savour the beer, just like the real connoisseurs.

Visitors can enjoy Irish cuisine with a Guinness twist in the Brewery Bar or a relaxing pint of Guinness in the Source Bar. And if you'd like a souvenir to remind you of your trip to the home of Guinness, there's plenty to chose from in the Retail Store.

Open All Year 7 days: 9.30am-5pm (last admission 5pm)
