Located in the heart of the St James's Gate Brewery, which has been home to the black stuff since 1759, Guinness Storehouse is Ireland's Number One Visitor Attraction and you simply cannot leave Dublin without having paid a visit.
The massive seven-storey building, a former Guinness fermentation plant, has been remodelled into the shape of a giant pint of Guinness. A visit will teach you everything you ever wanted to know about this world famous beer from how Guinness is made to the ancient craft of Guinness barrel making in the Cooperage.
The highlight for many visitors is the Gravity Bar. Here visitors receive a complimentary pint of Guinness and can relax and enjoy the breath taking 360-degree views across Dublin City.
