1
Plan ahead to save moneyOn weekdays between 9:30 am and 12:00 pm is the quietest time at the Guinness Storehouse. To avoid large crowds, it is recommended to visit the attraction within these time periods. Depending on the booking time, the price of the tickets will change too.

2
Admire Dublin from aboveThe Guinness Storehouse is also popular with lovers of urban skylines. This is because the Gravity Bar on the top floor offers one of the best views of the Irish capital through its large windows. However, only those who have bought a ticket for the brewery are allowed into the Gravity Bar. .
3
Visit as a familyChildren and teenagers are welcome at the Guinness Storehouse and family tickets are also among its offerings. However, some attractions are not suitable for people under 18. Guests must be of legal age for tastings. Children are allowed to join the tours with the right ticket and get a non-alcoholic drink in the Gravity Bar instead of the beer included in the ticket for adults.
4
Try some attractionsThe Guinness Storehouse is not just a simple brewery. The tourist magnet offers a wide variety of attractions. In the following editorial, we have taken a closer look at the most important stations for you.
5
Save with a combo ticketThe Dublin Pass from Go City is a combi ticket for the top sights of Dublin, which is only online available in two variants. The All-Inclusive Pass is valid for three to seven days and allows unlimited access to all sights offered. In contrast, with the Explorer Pass, you have to decide in advance whether you want to visit 3, 4, 5 or 7 sights, but it is valid for 60 days. Even though local transportation is not included in the Go City Pass, you can choose from a variety of tours and sightseeing buses.

The main attractions at the Guinness Storehouse

The old brewhouse is more than just a gimmick for beer lovers. With varied attractions for connoisseurs of all kinds, it is not by accident the most popular tourist magnet in Dublin.

The historical exhibitions

Those who want to immerse themselves in the history of the iconic dark beer will get their money's worth at the Guinness Storehouse. Several floors offer a look at the company’s long history. The first floor welcomes visitors with facts about the beer, but also about company founder Arthur Guinness, who acquired the brewery in 1759. For the third floor, retro adverts and commercials have been collected from all over the world, from posters and cardboard displays to old TV commercials. If that's not enough for you, you can even book an appointment in the Company Archive from Monday to Friday.

Tasting beer and tapping it yourself

Of course, tastings of the Irish barley juice are also part of every visit to the Storehouse. The Tasting Experience on the second floor provides a remedy: Those who book tickets for this so-called Connoisseur Experience also receive expert information during the tasting of various beers. In addition, in the so-called Guinness Academy on the fourth floor, you can learn how to tap beer properly from experts. On top of that, the Academy offers a special goodie: the Guinness Stoutie, which puts your selfie on the beer foam.

Restaurants and bars

The right meal should not be missing with the beer. Accordingly, the Storehouse offers various eateries. In addition to bar food at Arthur's Bar and the 1837 Bar & Brasserie on the fifth floor, the Brewers' Dining Hall offers an open kitchen with seafood. Smaller dishes, such as coffee and snacks, are offered at the beginning of each tour by the Cooperage Café.

Viewing platform over Dublin

The Gravity Bar on the seventh floor is worth a visit not only for the drinks. Rather, the attraction on the top floor should be visited because of the grandiose view of all of Dublin. Through the large glass windows, you get a 360-degree panorama of the Irish capital. Since a renovation and doubling of the space in 2020, the Gravity Bar with 7760 ft² (721 m²) now offers more space than ever for beer- and Dublin fans.

St. Patrick's Day and seasonal events

The Irish national holiday St. Patrick's Day has become world-famous - especially for its festive mood during the usually green-colored events. It goes without saying that the Guinness Storehouse also brings festivities on March 17. For five days, the brewery offers events with Irish music and dance performances, plus special delicacies. Also at Christmas and in midsummer, special decorations, performances and seasonal attractions are offered.

The restaurants in the Guinness Storehouse can all be rented for events, even the entire building if you invite more than 650 people, though only in the evenings. The capacities in the restaurants range from up to 100 people and up to 600 people. For smaller circles, a booking of the Connoisseur Bar with up to 16 people is the most suitable option.
