Create an itinerary including Guinness Storehouse
Have a pint of Ireland's favorite beer at Guinness Storehouse, which narrates the history of one of the country's major exports. The old storehouse is the only part of a massive brewery open to the public--its signature attraction is a glass atrium designed to resemble a pint of Guinness. Discover the history of both the historical brewery and the popular brand on the ground floor, and then proceed up through seven more floors that demonstrate everything from the selection of barley and hops to the transportation and advertising of the finished product. Once you reach the top, claim your complimentary pint of the black brew at the storehouse's glass-enclosed bar, which offers panoramic views of the city. Put Guinness Storehouse into our Dublin day trip app to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Dublin.

  • Meh. Self-guided tour and not an organized tour. A little disappointing. Would think they’d let you go see the beer being brewed. The bar at the top was nice and it was fun to have a beer up there.....  more

  • Wonderful, wonderful time spent in the Guinness building! History with fun, good organization and excellent set up. The pint of Guinness in the gravity bar is so worth it! The view is phenomenal and the beer is so fresh and smooth! They have a parking that is only for Guinness guests and it is only a block from the building - so convenient! Highly recommend getting tickets in advance and getting there at least 10 mins before the tour start as there are lines forming. We had fun!
  • An absolute must-do when visiting Dublin. Every part of this adventure is worthwhile and memorable. The building itself is on such a massive scale that it is awe inspiring. The design is also incredible; from the shape and sight lines of the central tower, to the layout of the visitor walkways. There is so much to see and the experience covers multiple angles of inquiry. You will learn about the ingredients and the economic scale of the product, the history of the Guinness family’s impact on Dublin and the world, the industries of producing, packaging, and transporting the black stuff, and honestly so much more. The tour is highly interactive and there is a fantastic level dedicated to old advertising that I particularly loved. You will also get the chance to enjoy a perfect pint in one of the many great bars. This is one of the best tours to take in Dublin and is loved by locals ad well as visitors. I spent about four hours here so do plan to get there early and take the time to enjoy it.
