The Guinness Storehouse, located at St. James Gate Brewery is Ireland’s number 1 visitor attraction. The Storehouse is home to the world famous Guinness brand and the “Black Stuff”. The attraction is at the heart of Dublin and ensures an unforgettable start to your Irish adventure. The storehouse opened its doors in 2000 and has welcomed over 4 million tourists and counting since then.
When you enter the storehouse your journey begins at the bottom of the world’s largest pint glass and continues upwards through 7 floors – each filled with interactive experiences. On the top floor you will find the Gravity Bar, Dublin’s famous bar where you can enjoy a pint of Guinness while looking out over the city with 360 degree views.
