The Guinness Storehouse - Skip The Line

A self-guided visit to the magical home of Guinness® is a must on any tour of Dublin. Guinness Storehouse® is Ireland’s top visitor attraction welcoming over one million visitors annually.

GUINNESS STOREHOUSE® is the number one international visitor attraction in Dublin. It is a "must see" visit in any tour of Dublin and is located in the heart of the Guinness® brewery at St James’s Gate. Housed in an old Fermentation Plant, now the seven-storey visitor experience tells the history of the making of this world famous beer.

It is a dramatic story that begins over 250 years ago and ends in Gravity® Bar where visitors will receive a complimentary pint of Guinness® while relaxing and enjoying spectacular views over Dublin.

The adventure begins the moment you walk through the door and into the building's giant, pint-shaped heart of glass. As you wander up through Guinness Storehouse®, you'll discover what goes into making the “Black Stuff” - the ingredients, the process, the passion. You'll learn about Arthur Guinness and find out how the drink that carries his name has been transported around the world. You'll see how Guinness® has been advertised over the years and visit Guinness®, at Home and Abroad. At Food on Five visitors can enjoy Irish cuisine with a Guinness® twist in a selection of restaurants - Brewers Dining Hall, 1837 Restaurant and Arthur’s Bar. And if you'd like a souvenir to remind you of your trip to the home of Guinness®, there's plenty to choose from in the Retail Store.
