Guinness Storehouse Tour

Tour Overview

A visit to the magical home of GUINNESS is a must on any tour of Dublin. Guinness Storehouse is Ireland’s top visitor attraction located in the heart of the Guinness Brewery at St James’s Gate. Housed in an old fermentation plant, now the seven-storey visitor experience tells the story of this world famous drink. It is a dramatic story that begins over 250 years ago and ends in Gravity Bar, where visitors will receive a complimentary pint of Guinness while relaxing and enjoying spectacular views over Dublin.

The adventure begins the moment you walk through the door and into the building’s giant, pint-shaped heart of glass. As you wander through Guinness Storehouse, you’ll discover what goes into making the “Black Stuff” – the ingredients, the process, the passion.
