The Guinness Storehouse

In the the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day, I thought it would be fun to blog about the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin. If you’re a Guinness fan, you will love the tour at the Guinness Storehouse. The Storehouse is the old brewing factory and offers a in depth history of the beer. The place where the beer we know and love is actually brewed right next door to the Storehouse. And, of course, since you’re next door to the brewery, the beer is as fresh as it gets and that much more delicious than you can get in the United States. If you are of age, the ticket price includes a beer you can partake at the end of your tour at the gravity bar. The gravity bar has floor to ceiling glass windows with panoramic views of Dublin and really is a great site to see.

The Storehouse has 7 floors to explore and we had the chance to check out everything Guinness. Anywhere from the basic recipe of the brew, to pieces of the original brewery equipment, to the advertising they’ve used over the years and how it’s evolved. They also have the old bottles from some of the original beers brewed hundreds of years ago, which I found very fascinating. The history of the beer was really cool to learn about.

Fun Fact: I never knew this, but Arthur Guinness signed a 9,000 year lease on the property in 1759 for a measly £45 a year!! That’s crazy, but what a smart businessman!

I recommend to anyone planning on visiting the Dublin area, to check out the Storehouse. After all, it is the top attraction in Ireland and you will not regret the experience. We used the hop on hop off bus in the city and we were able to visit lots of great attractions. This bus tip was given to us from the locals at the B&B we stayed at and realized what a great value it was shortly after we starting touring around the city. Worth the money!

    Fantastic! I had Guinness on St. Patrick’s Day here at home in CA… imported from Ireland. How neat to see the actual location!
