Located in the heart of the legendary St James’s Gate brewery in Dublin, this production site has been home to the “Black Stuff” since 1759, when Arthur Guinness signed a lease for 9,000 years. The Storehouse, a former fermentation plant, has been successfully remodelled into a visitor centre dedicated to the history of Guinness. Ireland’s number one visitor attraction unfolds its tale across seven floors shaped around a giant pint glass which, if full, would contain 14.3 million pints of Guinness.

The highlight of the visit for many is the Gravity Bar, symbolically the “head of the pint”, where you can enjoy 360 degree views across Dublin while drinking a complimentary pint of Guinnes
