Guinness Storehouse Tours

The Guinness Storehouse, one of Ireland’s top visitor attractions, draws travelers from all corners of the world who want to see the birthplace of the famed dark beer and get a taste straight from the barrel.

The Basics
The seven-story, pint glass-shaped interior of the Guinness brewery and storehouse features a multimedia experience that includes interactive exhibits and demonstrations of the brewing process. The self-guided tour allows guests to learn the history behind the legendary stout and check out vintage ads. Touch the barley, smell the hops, and learn the art of pouring a perfect pint, plus get a peek into the history of Guinness advertising. After getting familiar with the main ingredients in Guinness, head to the next level to learn about the brewing process and the different variations that are on the market. Floors two through six take you back in time to discover the history behind Arthur Guinness, the company, and the Guinness Storehouse itself. Head back to the ground floor to visit the retail store for Guinness-themed souvenirs.

At the top-floor, glass-enclosed Gravity Bar, the culmination of the seven-story visitor experience, line up to claim your free pint of Guinness to enjoy with 360-degree views over the brewery and the city of Dublin. Some tours and tickets offer skip-the-line privileges, allowing you to bypass the (sometimes long) queue.
  • Storehouse admission includes one complimentary pint.
  • Opt for a skip-the-line ticket for fast-track entry.
  • Dublin city tours, beer and spirits-themed tours of Temple Bar, and hop-on, hop-off bus tours typically stop here; the self-guided tour inside is easy to follow on your own.
  • The storehouse is handicap accessible.
  • Book the Connoisseur Experience for an exclusive, 75-minute tasting experience.

How to Get There
The storehouse is located in central Dublin at St. James’s Gate, easily accessible on foot, by taxi, or via public transportation.

When to Get There
If you don’t mind sipping a pint in the morning, it’s advisable to arrive early to beat the crowds. Hours vary seasonally.

History of the Guinness Storehouse
The site of the current storehouse was originally a fermentation plant for the St. James’s Gate Brewery until it closed in 1988. The building was the first multi-story, steel-framed building constructed in the entire country of Ireland, designed in the Chicago School of Architecture style.
