Owner description: GUINNESS STOREHOUSE(R), 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.

At the end of the day this is a brewery trip. They explain how Guinness is brewed, a bit of family history and at the end of the trip a chance to sample a pint. The "experience" itself is well designed at it is easy to spend an hour or two going around. For me the highlight was the chance to pour my own perfect pint of guinness - I am easily pleased.

We paid for the tour and walked in and they said you can follow a tour or just go on your own. Several just went on their own and it was a bit chaotic. We had the free pint and the Guinness and beef stew. Very crowded.... Can't imagine what it's like during the summer months. The bar at the top was so crowded that you couldn't really see outside unless you pushed your way to the windows. Came away with a cute t-shirt and that's about it. Wouldn't do it again.

Booked on line and tickets were collected on arrival. Very easy and walked straight in. You walk round your own and read all the boards plus watch tv screens so it isn’t guided by I quite liked this as you do it at your own pace. The whole centre is set up really well and entices you in with smell, sound, sight and interactive displays and of course the promise of your ‘free’ pint of Guinness at the end. I’d say you need max of 2 hours to do this. We went at 4pm which was a great time as we ended up pulling our own pint (and you get a certificate!) and then you can take it up to the 365 degree rooftop bar. Don’t bother. It was heaving, no seats and we were exhausted after a day walking the Dublin streets so we went back down to the next level and found some seats to enjoy our pints. Great shop as you leave too. All in all an enjoyable €20 well spent and the Guinness..... it was delicious!

Hugely informative and goes on for ages, my only fault is that it was way too busy. If they limited the numbers of people visiting at a time it would be perfect

A great way to spend a few hours in Dublin. Lots to see and learn and even a chance to pull your own pint once instructed on the right way to do it. Friendly staff and a relaxing tour at your own speed.
