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
