Owner description: 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.

“Very well set up tour”
Reviewed 30 April 2012

Guinness have done a very good job with their visitors centre. It is very well organised and nothing tastes quite like the Guinness on the top floor in the bar with the 360 degree views !

“A must, even if you don't like stouts”
Reviewed 29 April 2012

If you enjoy beer, even if it's not a stout, you MUST visit the Guinness Storehouse. The Guinness Storehouse hosts a tour that will begin by showing you Arthur Guiness's 9,000 year lease on the brewery. Tip: look down before you start the actual tour as the copy(?) is sealed in the floor.
The tour, in itself, will show you what ingredients are used to make beer, how the barley is cooked in order to make a stout (what makes it different from say, a lager or an ale), the fermentation process, and so on. The whole thing is interesting and you may walk and see at your own pace. I would recommend you wait and watch each clip, as there is a short video for each step of the brewing process.
At the end of the tour, you will walk into a small tasting room. Do not be afraid and think that the small glass is your free sample, no... that is just a tasting sample. Once you are out of there you may go get your actual pint on the last floor, also known as the Gravity Bar. There you will enjoy a full view of the Dublin skyline, get a chance to drink a Guinness or two and take some pictures.
Now, here's a very important recommendation. Even if you don't like stouts or beer in general, TRY THE GUINNESS. I have tried Guinness in bottles and cans in the Americas, I have tried Guinness draught all over Europe, but the Guinness draught you try at the factory is exponentially better than the rest and this includes draughts elsewhere in Dublin. It seems you cannot beat the freshness of the factory. I have friends who hate "dark beers" as they call them, but they loved Guinness at the Storehouse.
Finally, fear not. If you enjoyed your free pint (and I can guarantee you will), you may purchase more at the restaurants, cafeterias and bars that are installed on other floors. Oh, and be ready to spend on souvenirs as the gift shop offers a vast quantity of products which are all very nice if, at times, a tad tacky.

Thank you so much for the above detailed review. It’s great to hear that you had an enjoyable visit and that you rate us favourably. As you mentioned there are lots of great exhibits where you can experience the story of Guinness from the Ingredients, to the brewing and right up to the most enjoyable part the tasting. We have plans to add even more cool stuff over the next few years so watch the space.
Once again thank you for taking the time to share your feedback Sláinte!

“Great experience”
Reviewed 29 April 2012

Loved this tour. It takes you on a journey of the making of guinness, from the growing of the barley, through to the pulling of the pint. Also huge sections on the coopers who made the barrells & the transportation methods. Lots of brilliant audio-visual presentations. Plenty of archive footage of how it used to be. Lots of people there, but also lots of space for everyone.
Free tasting is included and much as I tried, I still don't like the stuff but was fascinated to see it's history & how it's made.
Well worth a visit
