Owner description: GUINNESS STOREHOUSE(R), Ireland's No. 1 visitor attraction is a "must see" on any visit to Dublin. Housed in an old fermentation plant in the heart of St James's Gate Brewery, the now seven-storey visitor experience tells the story of Ireland's iconic drink and beings to life the heritage of this world famous beer. Your journey begins standing at the bottom of the world's largest pint glass, which rises through the building. It is a dramatic story that begins over 250 years ago and ends in Gravity(R) Bar, Dublin's highest bar where you will receive a complimentary pint of GUINNESS(R) while enjoying spectacular views over Dublin.

Not very organised, the guided tours had to many participants so everyone could not hear the guide. Seemed like they tried to charge you extra for everything inside.

With the amazing reputation of the brew, we expected to see something very sophisticated. Although our tour guide was very knowledgeable and was able to answer every question tossed her way, the environment was busy, chaotic and not well organized. Private tours (which we were on) were mixing with individual visitors, general announcements were blasted over tour guide speaking so at times was very hard to hear. There wasn't much time spent on the actual process of brewing. The finale of course was a free pint of Guinness at the top of the building with views of all Dublin, but the crowds made it challenging to see much. But how can you go to Ireland and not visit Guinness... you can't! Just be prepared.

This is a real tourist trap .The 15 euro admission is the dearest pint of plain in Dublin.Would give it a miss unless you have a lot of time to kill.

We really enjoyed the whole experience, especially the viewing area with panoramic views of the city. Also enjoyed the pint of black while watching. Informative and interesting.
