Guiness Store House Dublin | Travel*


Guiness store house Dublin


Alex and I have been saying for a long time that we need to go on more weekends away, and visit places that we haven't been before.

So for her birthday this year, I decided to take her away to Dublin for a couple of days. 

I'd heard a lot of good reviews and it's always been a place I've wanted to go so I booked it on impulse as soon as I got the idea. 

One place that EVERYONE recommended we visit while we were there was the Guinness Storehouse.

As you can imagine, when we got there we were pretty excited to get in and have a look around, and I can honestly say that we were not disappointed!

Even from the outside there was plenty to look at, including the gate at the top of this post which is the one they use for the adverts that you see on TV.

But when you got inside there was so much to look at on your way around. 

You start in the main reception which has been designed as a huge pint glass! Already a great start!

Then as you go up a level, each floor focuses on a different part of the company.

On one of the levels, you can head to the Guinness Academy and learn how to pour the perfect pint. 

You get a token on the bottom of your ticket when you go in that can either be traded for a free pint of Guinness or a soft drink in the bar at the end, or you can use it in here and drink the pint that you've pulled yourself.

As we walked around we were both really impressed at the balance that they had found between giving you plenty of information about the company and the Guinness family, but not overpowering you with tons of small print on notice boards as you sometimes find in these types of tours.

It's very interactive as you wander round the Storehouse - especially in the tasting room. 

Before you head through and taste a mini Guinness, there are four pods that let out a vapour of each of the four ingredients in Guinness Draught.

Aside from learning how Guinness is made, advertised, and sold though, what I personally found the most interesting was the incredible impact that the Guinness family had on Dublin.

As you're walking around it all of a sudden becomes apparent why Guinness, to this day is loved by everyone in the city and in a strange way, by walking around the Storehouse you feel as though you're now a part of it. 

So whether you think you're a Guinness fan or not, I would definitely recommend visiting the Storehouse when you're in Dublin because if you don't you'll be missing out on a huge part of the city's history.
