  • I was surprised and impressed that they had an audio visual station where you could take an informative quiz about your drinking habits and their effects on your body
  • The view was amazing (even on three hours sleep and jet lagged as all get out), and although I didn’t finish my pint, we did sit in the leather couches for almost an hour before feeling up to tackling the journey out of the storehouse
  • Surprisingly we did not visit the enormous gift shop they had on the first floor, as I think at the time I was feeling the effects of jet lag and was also not interested in purchasing anything with the Guinness logo on it

      Guinness Storehouse Tour Everyone said we had to see tour the Guinness Storehouse and after checking into our hostel in Temple Bar (the tourist and nightlife hot spot) we decided to walk to St. James Gate. It was our first day in Dublin, it was raining (of course) and we were running on little sleep because of jet lag and an extremely long stop-over in New York.

      When we found the Gate (you really can’t miss it) we paid our fifteen euro entrance fee and found


      ourselves in the middle of a pack of Japanese tourists, which was both annoying and funny at the same time. Both of us do enjoy a Guinness on occasion, but spending two hours touring the inside of a “fake” brewery is not my favorite activity to do while on vacation. We did learn a lot of facts about the history of the beer, and how it came into being from Arthur Guinness. They did have some visual demonstrations of how much hops, barley, yeast and
      water it takes to make the beer and they had Guinness bottles and cans from different years and various countries. I was surprised and impressed that they had an audio visual station where you could take an informative quiz about your drinking habits and their effects on your body.

      Once we got through the five floors of Guinness propaganda we took an elevator to the last stop on the tour, the Gravity Bar, where you can take in a panoramic view of Dublin City, and enjoy ...

      a free pint of Guinness. The view was amazing (even on three hours sleep and jet lagged as all get out), and although I didn’t finish my pint, we did sit in the leather couches for almost an hour before feeling up to tackling the journey out of the storehouse. Surprisingly we did not visit the enormous gift shop they had on the first floor, as I think at the time I was feeling the effects of jet lag and was also not interested in
      purchasing anything with the Guinness logo on it.

      I may have been biased by the jet lag but it really reminded me of a being in a slaughterhouse, where you walk in one door, have to get through all this information, and then leave via another door. If you enjoy beer or really want to take in a neat view of the city, I guess it would be worth it. If you are not a fan of major corporations like Coca Cola or McDonald’s you will probably not enjoy this attraction.
