About
Guinness Storehouse, Ireland's No. 1 visitor attraction is a "must see" on any visit to Dublin. Housed in an old fermentation plant in the heart of St James's Gate Brewery, the now seven-storey visitor experience tells the story of Ireland's iconic drink and beings to life the heritage of this world famous beer. Your journey begins standing at the bottom of the world's largest pint glass, which rises through the building. It is a dramatic story that begins over 250 years ago and ends in Gravity(R) Bar, Dublin's highest bar where you will receive a complimentary pint of GUINNESS(R) while enjoying spectacular views over Dublin.

Tour is very well laid out to show how the beer is created, with a final tasting stop and panoramic view of Dublin at the top. We enjoyed our time here.

We visited and did a tour and learned how to pour a Guinness. Very enjoyable day with friends. Gift shop had some of the best deals we have seen in Ireland for candy, gifts and Guinness memorabilia.

I am not a huge beer drinker, but tis museum is superb and even my teetotal companions enjoyed this and found it educational. Probably one of the highlights of our visit to Dublin.

Book your reservation online, in advance. We walked there & back from the Grafton Street area and it was a bit of a trek. We don't mind walking, but it's a maze of streets through the Liberties Quarter. You might be better off taking a taxi.
This is a well done attraction. Not being particularly a beer drinker, it became somewhat tiresome, with floor after floor of information. It would undoubtedly be most appealing to Guinness fans. Having said that, I have to admit, I enjoyed the Guinness pint (on top) more than I would have imagined.
For us, the highlight was the 360 degree view from the very top. It's packed with people, but our experience was that after hanging around for ~ 20 minutes, and enjoying the views in every direction (while sipping a pint), we were able to snag a table for two. So, if you get bored with the displays, just go to the top and skip the information, or take a break from it, and then return where you left off. If you go with a large group, I think you'd have difficulty getting a table.
In summary, this is not a "must do" in my opinion, but I'm certainly not sorry we did it. If you like "museum shops", this one has LOTS to choose from, especially if you're looking for gifts.

Enjoyed learning more about guinness history and the process of making their beers. getting to top of warehouse for beer was difficult for those with bad knees. Elevators were slow to arrive.

The tour is go at your own pace. Unfortunately since we were interested in everything the restaurants were closed by the time we finished. That would have been nice to know.

I'll preface by saying that I'm not a Guinness drinker and was with a group of friends that were more into this than I was. The "experience" is very Disney/EPCOT-like which I mean as neither a criticism or compliment, just a description. It's very modern, with lots of videos and lights. There's good information provided about the history and process of making Guinness, and it's kind of cool how you learn the story as you go up the different flights of the building, leading you to the top observatory bar where you get to have a pint of Guinness. The Gravity Bar is really cool with 360 views of Dublin. It's very crowded (at least on a Sunday afternoon in May), and we weren't able to get a seat. They're quick to pour a Guinness, though, and it's easy enough to stand at the bar with your drink. It's not something I'd spend 22 Euros for if you're not into Guinness. I didn't even drink the pint and gave it to a friend!

While in Dublin, we did a self directed tour of the Guinness Storehouse. It was very informative learning the history of the beer. We had our free beer at the top level which has great views of Dublin. It was a good way to spend a couple of hours.
