The Story of Guinness

Located on the ground floor, this attraction provides some of the more interesting historical details about the brewery. 

You can expect to see a variety of notable artifacts such as the 9,000 year lease signed by Arthur Guinness, the largest pint glass in the world, and the ingredients used to make their beer.


Meet Arthur Guinness

This exhibit can be found on the first floor, and it covers the history of Arthur Guinness, the man who created the empire behind this beloved brew.

While here, you’ll see some of the wooden vats used in the brewing process, a gigantic copper kettle, and many other unique artifacts/attractions of interest to Guinness drinkers.


Guinness World of Advertising

This is where you’ll find pretty much the entire history of Guinness in advertisements. 

In addition to seeing how the branding of this brew evolved over the years, there are also opportunities to participate in a little advertising of your own!

One of the attractions here allows you to recreate the Guinness advertisement with a workman carrying a beam. 

To see this and more historic advertising for yourself, head to the third floor.


Gravity Bar

No matter which ticket option you select, you’ll have access to a free drink at this bar located on the seventh floor.

Being at the top of the building, the Gravity Bar also provides one of the best views in the city. 

Even if you don’t want a drink, it’s worth heading up here just to see the view of Dublin from seven stories high!


Guinness Academy

If you get a ticket with access to this attraction, you’ll have the opportunity to come to this attraction on the fourth floor and learn how to pour the perfect pint from an expert.

Anyone who has ever struggled with pouring beer into a pint glass will definitely want to take a class here and learn how the professionals get the job done right!


The Tasting Experience

Want to know exactly what makes Guinness taste the way it does? 

The Tasting Experience provides some interesting extra-sensory experiences to help you understand the science behind the flavour.

You’ll find this attraction on the second floor.


Food on Five

As the name implies, this is the fifth floor of the Guinness Storehouse, and it’s home to the restaurants of the brewery. 

Both Arthur’s Bar and 1837 Bar & Brasserie serve a variety of Guinness drinks and excellent food which will pair up nicely with their brews. 

Needless to say, all the food and drinks at these locations will cost extra.
