A unique guided tour lets you see how the famous Guinness is made, as well as tasting it in its original home
A must-see for beer lovers
Any brewing enthusiasts coming to Dublin should not miss the tour of the birthplace of Guinness, which is now converted into an empire and has its own museum, the Guinness Storehouse. At its humble beginning, around the year 1902, it was a simple brewery in which water, barley, hops and yeast were mixed before shipping the barrels of beer to places all over the world. Nowadays it is one of the city’s tourist attractions with its merchandise gift shop and an interactive tour which tells you all about the processes of growing, fermenting, bottling, transportation, and marketing campaigns: in short, the story of Guinness with no secrets. The entrance fee includes a Guinness tasting session, as well as other entertainment such as “learn to pull the perfect pint” (Guinness certificate included), enjoying the exquisite catering with beer-based dishes in the Brewers Dining Gall, or just continuing to drink while enjoying the extraordinary 360º view from the Gravity Bar on the seventh floor of the Guinness Storehouse.
