Guiness is good
I was a little bit disappointed with the Guiness Storehouse. I had heard so may rave reviews that it struggled to live up to its reputation. It is true, however, that the views from the Gravity Bar are the best in Dublin (where Guiness does taste better). I liked watching all the old tv advertisements but I think there was almost too much information and not enough hands-on material. It is definitely worth a visit, though fairly expensive at 15 euro.

Guinness Storehouse is located at St James's Gate (Dublin 8).
Been there and have a t-shirt. For some a pint of Guinness is an acquired taste, but for some it is quintessential Irish experience. Like it or not, to miss out on Guinness in Dublin would be a sacrilege. Does it surprise you it is the number one tourist attraction in Ireland? I think not. It was devised at first to house the Guinness fermentation process, however nowadays at Guinness storehouse you can find 7 levels of exhibits, while the central core is made to resemble the pint. It is an interesting and fun visit where you can learn more about the fermentation process, as well as the way the beer was branded over the years as well as enjoying a nice meal in the Brewery bar or a pint of Guinness in the Gravity bar where you can enjoy the views of Dublin.
Opening hours are 9:30am until 5:00pm. Price of admission is €14, 10% discount if you book online. [more]
