    Pretty nice. Great view over Dublin from the Sky Bar. Might be on the expensive side for what you get though.

    Bar at the top is an amazing location on top of a building shaped like a pint of Guinness. However it is crowded and only serves Guinness. If you're craving a Trappiste quadrupel, this isn't the place to find it.

    An amazing look at history and you get to finish it off at the Gravity bar at the top of the factory with a 360 degree view of Dublin and a free pint! Good stuff!

    Visiting Dublin and not visit the Guinness Storehouse is like not visiting Ireland at all!! The Guinness Storehouse is a fantastically designed and entertaining exhibition of everything Guinness. The self guided tour is informative and the sweet ending is a pint at the panoramic penthouse bar. I tasted the freshest, most refreshingly delicious draft Guinness right here, at its home!

    A must visit for any Guineness lover. It can be a little crowded, but it is a great and informative experience. The tour concludes with a perfect pint with a perfect view. Yes, the beer does taste better at the source.

    The plain exterior of the Guinness Storehouse belies the incredible exhibits within. The self-guided tour takes you from the ingredients to the brewing process to the advertising used over the years for this iconic brand. The highlight is when the tour becomes interactive, with lessons on how to detect the individual tastes of the beer, how to properly drink one, and the correct way to pour a pint. After you’ve poured your pint, take it to the sky bar for incredible views of Dublin.

    Fun exhibition about the history of brewing in Dublin, the process and an exhibition of memorabilia. Finishes with a complementary glass of the black stuff in a roof top bar with a superb view over Dublin.

    I'm going to start by saying I am a big fan of Guinness. It is one of my favorite beers. If you aren't a fan of Guinness you may want to skip it, though it is still interesting to learn about the history of this beer. If you are planning on going I recommend buying your ticket online ahead of time so you don't have to wait in line to buy the ticket

    I enjoyed visiting Guinness but felt a bit like I was paying to walk through an advertisement. The external facade and the views from the rooftop bar were the highlights. A bit of a shame they chose to go very commercial instead of emphasizing heritage and showcasing the authenticity of the historical structures.

    After this tour, I've gained the appreciation of enjoying a Guiness. The tour was definitely touristy but the best part is the free pint while on the top floor of the facility. You see the entire city of Dublin (360 degrees). The gentleman in the frame is Arthur Guiness, founder of the company.

    I was here for a rollicking party; such a fun space! My tip: try the 'Black Velvet': Guinness and prosecco. It sounds awful, but it was fantastic.

    I'm not a fan of the beer (I'm a Murphy's man), and the place is a bit cheesy. But still tons of fun with the family and lots of information.

    This is the coolest thing to do in Dublin. Reach the top of your tour and learn how to pure the perfect Guinness, then drink your Guinness while enjoying a panoramic view of Dublin.

    A little corny, but definitely worth the trek out to the Storehouse. Learn how to pour the perfect pint....and then drink it while enjoying incredible views of the city.

    Many places have tours for the "Tourists" and they are often hyped and overpriced. I think the Guinness Storehouse is a great tour and worth the money spent. With over five floors of history and information you will be able to come away with an amazing history of this famous brewery. The place was packed with French rugby fans on the day we went so we didn't get into the restaurant, however we did learn to pour a perfect pint and get to have a second pint on the roof bar. Lot's of swag in the gift shop. I think you'd like this tour.

Description

For fans of Guinness beer - and who isn't a fan of Guinness beer? - the Guinness Storehouse is a veritable place of worship. The Storehouse - also called the Guinness Hop Store - opened in 2000 in a century-old fermentation plant. Today it comprises seven floors surrounding a pint-shaped atrium. Visitors are treated to a look into to the making of the delicious dark brown beer, the history of the Guinness brand and the life of its founder, Arthur Guinness. For many, the best part of the tour is the complimentary pint of Guinness available at the Gravity Bar on the Storehouse's 7th floor.
