No visit to Dublin is complete without a pint or two of the famous “black stuff” and a healthy dose of “craic” thrown in for good measure!
If you are planning a trip to Dublin, then a few hours in the Guinness Storehouse should be on your bucket list. There are a surprising number of activities available, and the tour ends with a free pint of Guinness!
The Storehouse Experience
When considering a visit to this iconic building, it’s always best to book tickets online, as it’s a popular attraction. The basic experience comprises of a self-guided tour, entrance to the Guinness tasting rooms, and a free pint in the Gravity bar.
This is home to Ireland’s highest garden and has some of the best views of Dublin. It’s also possible to have a non-alcoholic drink, instead.
Overall, allow yourself about 90 minutes to discover the sights, sounds and aromas behind this iconic drink.
Upgrade the Fun!
If the basic experience just isn’t enough, there are various upgrades available, to truly immerse yourself in all things Guinness! Why not treat yourself to an extra pint, that comes with your selfie emblazoned on the creamy head?
Truly a photo-worthy moment! You are no doubt aware that a Guinness has to be settled, and you can join the Guinness Academy to learn the secrets of the six-step ritual. And you get a certificate too!
If you want to linger and make the most of your day out, then there are several places to eat too. From freshly baked cakes at the coffee shop to the signature dishes in the 1837 Brasserie, there are plenty of options available.
For a relatively affordable price, drinking a pint at the Guinness Storehouse is a quick, easy and fun task to check off on your bucket list!
