|About these ratings|
Like the Old Jameson Distillery, the Guinness Storehouse is no longer a functioning brewery, but it will give you an insiders' view into the history and process behind the storied stout. Take a self-guided tour through the former brewery and receive a tutorial on the brewery process, including a 15-minute film, and some time spent atop the Gravity Bar, where visitors (18 and older) will receive a complimentary Guinness.
Although many recent travelers recommend the Guinness Storehouse tour, they also say it was a bit boring. One TripAdvisor traveler was especially disappointed in the high price of admission and the so-called free beer, suggesting visitors save their money and order a €5 EUR Guinness at a pub instead.
The Guinness Storehouse is located South of the Liffey on the western edge of central Dublin. It is open daily, but charges a fairly high admission fee; however, you can save 10 percent by booking online. Also visit the site for more information on admission prices and hours of operation.
