century-old fermentation plant. Today it comprises seven floors surrounding a pint-shaped atrium. Visitors are treated to a look into to the making of the delicious dark brown beer, the history of the Guinness brand and the life of its founder, Arthur Guinness. For many, the best part of the tour is the complimentary pint of Guinness available at the Gravity Bar on the Storehouse's 7th floor.

Guinness was my gateway stout, which is why I have always had a special place for it in my heart and in my belly. So, how could I not pay homage to this beautiful brew without a visit to the Guinness storehouse where it all began? I was blown away by its history and the storehouse itself was just really well done with how they displayed the brew’s history as well as its brewing process. I definitely recommend choosing to use your ticket on learning how to properly pour yourself a glass of the black stuff. And then go on and explore the gravity bar where you can take in a 360 view of the city.

Drinking beer has never been more interesting.
As someone who doesn't really drink beer I thoroughly enjoyed this experience.

The Guinness Storehouse its a self guided tour that gifts you with a complementary pint of Guinness at the end of the tour. (YAY!) Or a soft drink for those abstaining from the drink.

The Self Guided aspect means you can take your time or breeze through at speed. The 7 floored Museum has something of interest for everyone from a photo both, to an area surrounding science and on to the ever favourite tasting booth.

I decided that for my complimentary pint I would head to the pouring station to learn how to pour the perfect pint of Guinness. This activity was by far my favourite. I learnt how to pour my own Guinness, got a certificate to prove it and then made my way up to the top level for 360 degree views of Dublin City.
Definitely worth the trip for all.

One of Dublin’s biggest tourist attractions but well worth a stop. Museum portion is huge and well laid out and pouring your own pint is fun too.

I'm not a beer drinker, but this museum is a must visit while in Dublin. First you learn the beer making process, then you take the escalator up to the top for more additional activities. Make sure you book the ticket in advance, you can choice to pour your own Guinness or have someone pour for you at Gravity bar.

This tour isn't a brewery tour, but more of a museum tour of the history of Guinness. Certain parts of the tour were interesting, but the self-guided part just didn't seem like it was worth it. The Gravity Bar at the top was cool and a great place to have a pint, as was the original lease that Arthur Guinness signed.

The Guinness Storehouse is a great place to go if you want to learn and experience how the brew is made. It also has a really cool walkthrough and set up that is worth taking your time to explore. You get a free drink with the ticket and there is the option of adding a Guinness making class to it as well!

Somewhat of a cliché tourist thing to do in Dublin, but that doesn’t diminish the experience! Yes, it’s a little over the top in design and there’s only so much information they can come up with about the beer, process, and history but it’s all interesting and they do a great job of keeping everything exciting and drawing out the experience. The design is really well done and engaging. The best part is definitely the bar at the top. It can be crowded and hard to find a good spot but the views are worth it and if you wait around long enough something will open up! The gift store is also awesome and a great place to get people christmas/birthday gifts or just a little souvenir. They have everything! The area around the Guinness factory doesn’t have that much else to offer in terms of tourism but if you’re looking for a good place to eat around there, LEGIT cafe has great coffee, good breakfast, and pretty good other food options if you want something healthy-ish and pretty trendy.

It’s the Willy Wonka of the beer world without the orange dudes. Tasting and gravity room were an amazing experience.

Although very touristy and they know it, the Guinness Storehouse does hold a wealth of info if you're interested in learning about the process of making Guinness and the history surrounding it, the culture, and the geography. Plus, free beer. :) I do wish that there were at least some parts of the tour that were led by a real person rather than it being self-led. That being said, the whole place is designed smartly and impeccably. Also, Guinness is finally fully vegan as of earlier this year (2017)!

Cool tour with tons of retro Guinness stuff definitely worth the trip and tasting the most fresh Guinness is an experience that I won't be able to mimic

Bypass the lines to get in by purchasing your ticket with a credit card from one of the kiosks. You can go at your own pace to work your way to the top floor where you can enjoy the view with your complementary glass of Guinness. It definitely tastes better in Ireland! Really enjoyed the display with all of the advertisements, especially the fish on the bike.

Located in the heart of the St. James's Gate Brewery, the Guinness Storehouse® is Ireland's most popular tourist attraction. It's the home of the Black Stuff, the heart of Dublin and an unforgettable start to your Irish adventure.

The journey begins at the bottom of the world's largest pint glass and continues up through seven floors filled with interactive experiences that fuse our long brewing heritage with Ireland's rich history. At the top, you'll be rewarded with a pint of perfection in our world-famous rooftop Gravity Bar. Now that's our kind of higher education.

The place is very touristy no denying, but it was a fun experience nonetheless. It is no longer a brewery tour but more of an interactive experience and learning about the brewing process and Guinness history through videos and displays. The bar on the top floor offered an amazing view of the city!

Honestly, I know the storehouse is a huge Dublin spot, but I didn't think it was all that. Tickets are pretty expensive, and while I really enjoyed learning about the history and a lot of other cool stuff, it has a very Disneyland vibe and is full of tourists. I really did enjoy the tasting rooms and would highly advise doing that. View from gravity bar is incredible but nearly impossible to get a seat.

Guinness is synonymous with Ireland and no visit to Dublin is complete without a trip to the Guinness Storehouse – the Home of Guinness.

Located in the heart of the legendary St. James’s Gate Brewery in Dublin, this production site has been home to the Guinness Brewery since 1759, when Arthur Guinness signed a lease for 9,000 years. The Guinness Storehouse building dates back to 1904 and is built in the style of the Chicago School of Architecture. It was once the fermentation plant of the brewery and is now a seven-storey visitor experience dedicated to the history of the making of this world famous beer.
