    A must do if in Dublin
    This tour was top of my list of things to do in Dublin and it didn’t disappoint. Everyone always said to me before visiting Ireland “the Guinness tastes better over in Ireland ” and I can confirm they weren’t lying. I’ve gone from being a casual drinker of Guinness to obsessed. Fantastic experience, you learn a lot while walking around and you get the chance to have some shots of Guinness, there’s a bar where you can purchase different types of Guinness (Nigerian, West Indian etc) in this bar they have Irish music and Irish dancers. A stoutie is experience (your selfie is out on top of a pint of Guinness) and a gravity bar where you have fantastic views of Dublin. Would 100% recommend to anyone visiting Dublin.
    Hi there, Thanks so much for your lovely review. It sounds like you really enjoyed the tour! We would like to thank you for your kind words, and you are welcome back anytime to dine in our restaurants and enjoy the spectacular views from our Gravity Bar Thank you, from the Guinness Storehouse

    Connoisseur Experience - ABSOLUTELY WORTH IT!!!
    ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! My husband and I decided to splurge and we did the Connoisseur Experience and it was totally worth it! Colm was our "bartender" and he was simply brilliant. Of everything we did over the 11 days in Ireland, the Connoisseur Experience is in our top 3 FOR SURE. The private, intimate setting with only 14 other people, the 6+ varieties of Guinness we got to try (and by "try" I mean a full glass!!!), and the wealth of knowledge from Colm (along with his personality and humor) made this an event to remember. The trip up to the Gravity Bar to round out the adventure was the cherry on the top! Highly highly highly recommend.

    I must start by saying I don't drink beer, but love Irish whiskey. Having said that, please don't miss this experience. My wife and I did the self guided tour and it was perfect. The innovation and forethought put into Gushiness was impressive. The view from the top floor was well worth the walk.

    Must See!
    A truly remarkable experience from start to finish. Everything about this place is great, from the history of Guinness to the making of the beer to the (of course) tasting of the beer. And the mussels at Brewer’s Dining Hall were awesome!

    Very touristy attraction
    It’s like going to a tourist attraction in Las Vegas. Very polished and tourist friendly, but light on content. We wanted to see the distilling process and smell yeast and hops. You know, the manufacturing process. For what it is, it’s well done. And we liked sitting on the 7th floor sipping our. pint and looking out at the city. And we made the acquaintance of a lively Australian young lady named Kate. Really kind of average but I gave it a very good because of our experience at the end.

    Great, slightly long
    The Guinness Storehouse Tour gives a very comprehensive explanation of the brewing process. The storehouse is quite large, and they highlight each and every part of the Guinness journey in full. On entering, they provide each member of your party with a voucher for one beer at the end of the tour. The beer tasting happens at the bar on the top floor of the storehouse, and from there you can see 360° views of the city. Due to the vastness of the storehouse and the many exhibitions, the tour does get slightly boring by the end; however, if I were more of a beer connoisseur, I think I would have been more interested in the entirety of the tour.

    Fun Experience with Lots To See
    My husband and I spent three hours here and it was very fun! We did a self guided tour with drink tickets. There is a giant store on the second floor along with bathrooms and there are about 4-5 more floors above that (with elevators and escalators). There is also a cafe which has a delicious iced coffee with Bailey's. We spent the most time in the Gravity room bar at the top. It has windows with views that overlook the city with plenty of tables and chairs. The beer was good! We had a great time and it was definitely worth going!

    Almost a requirement tour to book for travelling to Dublin
    The tour was not though an actual distillery but though a converted building with several floors of detail about the distilling process and about the cultural impact and history of Guinness not only in the U.K. and Ireland but through the world. It is a multimedia experience that is engaging tp walk through. Almost everyone's highlight is the Gravity Bar where you can enjoy a pint of the Black Stuff. What we did not know is that you can ask the barkeep to add a berry syrup to your pint if you are one to enjoy Guinness straight. The gift shop at the end of the tour is full of Guinness everything from t-shirts to wall signs to bar small wares. Was worth the visit and was a good time.

    Ryan in the Tasting Room 👍🏾
    I’m not the biggest fan or museums or tours because I hate reading while I’m on holidays. However, Ryan in the tasting room was able to summarize and describe the brewing process in such an easy and engaging way. He was very welcoming, friendly and polite. His energy and infectious smile was definitely well-received as his humour made the group laugh and enjoy the experience even more. Ryan was definitely a highlight of the tour, along with the STOUTie experience and the final Guinness at the Gravity Bar.

    Well done tour
    We loved our self guided tour at Guinness. The building is very well done, and there is so much history to see. The drink at the top level is an added bonus. It did get quite crowded while enjoying our free drink at the top, so don't expect a seat but the views of the city were lovely.

A must do if you’re in town and enjoy beer, regardless of if you enjoy Guinness or not! It’s an immersive experience that allows you to see the process of the brewing which is great, and the staff are are wonderful as well! Andrew Morrison was working the bar in the Gravity Bar and was phenomenal. He embodied hospitality in its highest form, and his knowledge of the brewery and its product were remarkable. Cheers!

Having had many a Guinness over the years, I really wanted to know if it tastes different in Dublin. The answer? Yes. Freshness is the key.

What I enjoyed even more than a fresh Guinness, similar to what I have at home but better, was the variety of offers on the tour. Not surprising were those offered in other parts of the world, like the Foreign Export and the West Indies. What was surprising was getting to taste a Guinness Citra IPA.

I very mush enjoyed the experience (took about an hour), the samples, the pints, the mussels in the restaurant - even the gift shop.

We absolutely loved this tour! It was such a special way to spend the morning in Dublin - we did indeed have a Breakfast of Champions. Also great views over the city on the top floor at the end of the tour, even if the weather is quite dreary!

Guinness is 5 floors of experiences all the way up to the Gravity Bar. Guinness, the iconic Irish stout and Harp Beer, was first brewed by Arthur Guinness in 1759. Arthur signed a 9,000-year lease for the St. James’s Gate Brewery in Dublin, Ireland, for an annual rent of £45. By the 1830s, Guinness was the largest brewery in Ireland, and by 1886, it became a public company. Can you split the G?

A lot of effort has gone into making this place interesting! I know more about beer now than I ever have. The advertising section was fun. Very crowded so be prepared for that. Also please don’t take your kids.

The story told in graphics was very interesting. Such a history! The water shower was beautiful and the top floor for a view and pint was well worth the price.

Guinness has turned this into a commercial escalator. Extremely overcrowded which made it difficult to read anything and to enjoy. Screens, screens and a pint at the top. A step too far, a more personal guided brewery experience would be much better.
