Directions to Guinness Storehouse
Seven floors of Guinness heritage await in this historical building which has been 'continually updated to create a blend of fascinating industrial tradition with a contemporary edge'. The story began in 1759 when Arthur Guinness signed a lease for a disused brewery at St James's Gate. Only 250-some-odd years into that 9000-year lease, Guinness is still going strong and is positioned well for its journey into the next several millennia.
You start the Guinness Storehouse tour in the Atrium, standing at the base of the world's largest 'pint' glass; move on to learn about the art and craft of the brewing process; then see how Guinness grew from making local deliveries by horse-drawn cart into a worldwide operation.
Take in some iconic imagery in the Advertising Gallery, and finally - having drunk in all this knowledge - it's time for a taster via The Guinness Taste Experience. To delve even further, the Guinness Connoisseur Bar offers the first and most exclusive Guinness beer tasting experience in the world (Connoisseur Experience sessions run daily for the additional cost of €25). Visitors will try the four most popular variants of Guinness - Draught, Original, Foreign Extra Stout and Black Lager. Or perhaps you'd just like to pop to the top of the building and marvel at the amazing bird's eye view from The Gravity Bar - a fantastic way to get the 'lay of the land' and pinpoint all of Dublin's landmarks (made easier by the leaflet provided and information posted at strategic points on the windows).
Hungry? You have plenty of choices. Arthur's Bar, a traditional Irish pub serves a short menu of basics (soup, sandwiches, morning coffees and homemade cakes and cookies). Gilroy's (named after artist John Gilroy, who devised the 'My Goodness, My Guinness' marketing campaigns) serves traditional Irish food in a bistro atmosphere. The Barge Café offers a range of homemade baked goods, gourmet sandwiches and salads (plus tea and coffee). Finally, the Brewers' Dining Hall menu focuses on local Irish produce.
When you're ready to depart, you'll head downstairs and find yourself back in the Atrium near The Store. As you'll doubtless be anxious to part with some cash (and leave with goodies of the Guinness variety), this Flagship Retail Store offers loads of nifty merchandise and memorabilia to bestow on lucky friends, loved ones - or yourself.
