Ireland’s Number One International Visitor Attraction, providing an unforgettable welcome and a magical journey deep into the heart of the world famous GUINNESS® brand.

Located in the heart of the legendary St James’s Gate Brewery in Dublin, this production site has been home to the Guinness Company since 1759, when Arthur Guinness signed the now-famous 9,000 year lease on the Brewery. The Guinness Storehouse was the former fermentation plant and has now been re-modelled into a visitor centre, dedicated to the history of Guinness. Ireland’s number one visitor attraction unfolds its tale across seven floors, shaped around a giant pint glass atrium, which if full, would contain 14.3 million pints of Guinness.

As you make your way through the impressive storehouse, explore the long tradition of award winning Guinness advertising and visit the Tasting rooms, the multisensory tasting experience designed to appreciate the distinctive taste of the iconic stout, from the very first velvet sip to the last lingering drop.

The Cooperage is an exhibit dedicated to the craft of the cooper, who hand made the wooden Guinness barrels which stored and transported the beer until the 1960’s. The highlight for many visitors is the highest point of the building—the Gravity Bar. This is a 360-degree panoramic bar, which has breathtaking views across Dublin City. This is where you can relax and enjoy a complimentary pint of Guinness at the end of the tour. During your visit, you might even get the chance to pour your own pint!
