Time Out says
An interactive experience at the legendary St. James’s Gate Brewery, which has produced Guinness since the company’s 1759 founding
Arguably the most popular attraction in the city, the Guinness Storehouse offers an interactive, seven-story adventure into everyone’s favorite Irish export. Dating back to 1904 and designed around a pint glass-shaped atrium, the building served as a fermentation plant before opening its doors to visitors. Self-guided tours begin with a visceral introduction to stout ingredients before explaining the brewing process and tracing Guinness family history. The tasting rooms will help you identify each distinctive flavor and the third-floor exhibit invites you to step into some of the brand’s most celebrated advertisements.
Time Out tip: Each tour includes a complimentary pint of Guinness and there are several options for enjoying it. Skip pouring class at the Guinness Academy and flights at the (supplement-required) Connoisseur Experience in favor the circular Gravity Bar on the top floor, which offers panoramic views of the city below.
Container Coffee: For caffeine bursts and baked goods served out of a reclaimed shipping container
Phoenix Park: For a breath of fresh air among a herd of friendly fallow deer
Arthur’s Pub: For Guinness, hearty Irish fare, and live music among Storehouse employees
