The Guinness Storehouse

Drop of the Black Stuff

A visit to the magical home of Guinness is a must during any visit to Dublin. The Guinness Storehouse is Ireland's top visitor attraction, welcoming more than one million visitors every year. It is located in the heart of the Guinness brewery at St James's Gate and housed in an old fermentation plant. The seven-storey visitor experience tells the history of the making of this world famous beer.

It is a dramatic story that begins more than 250 years ago and ends in the Gravity Bar where you receive a free pint of Guinness while relaxing and enjoying spectacular views over Dublin. The adventure starts as soon as you walk through the door into the building's giant, pint-shaped heart of glass. As you wander around you'll discover all that goes into making the Black Stuff. There are also plenty of restaurants where you can enjoy Irish cuisine and a shop.
