Like the Jameson Distillery, the Guinness Storehouse is no longer a functioning brewery, but it will give you an insider's view into the history and process behind the storied stout. Take the self-guided tour through the former brewery's seven floors to learn about the history of the one-of-a-kind beer, from the ingredients used in the brewing process to the iconic advertisements seen around the world. At the top, you'll be treated to a complimentary pint and city views from its rooftop Gravity Bar.
The best part of the tour for some visitors? The complimentary pint at the end along with the rooftop views. Even non-beer drinkers enjoyed the storehouse for its interactive and multimedia exhibits, but noted that during peak times they can be crowded. Other comment that tickets are a bit pricey. To save some coin (and skip the line), pre-purchase your tickets online in advance.
The Guinness Storehouse is located south of the Liffey on the western edge of central Dublin. It's a 20-minute walk from the Dublin city center or a 10-minute bus ride (hop on No. 123 from Dame or O'Connell streets). The nearest tram stop is St. James's Hospital. The Guinness Storehouse is open daily from 9:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.; in July and August it welcomes visitors until 8 p.m. Tickets cost 17.50 euros (about $21) for adults and 16 euros (about $19) for kids ages 13 to 17; entry is free for kids 12 and younger. Your admission includes a complimentary pint of Guinness (if you're 18 and older). If you purchased a Dublin Pass, your admission fee is waived. Along with two bars and several restaurants, the attraction also offers a gift shop. For more information, or to save on the price of admission, visit the storehouse's website.
