Enjoy a complimentary pint of Guinness and awesome views of Dublin at the top-floor Gravity Bar

Make your own way to the Guinness Storehouse, the seven-floor exhibition space at the St James’s Gate Brewery in central Dublin, where Guinness was first brewed in 1759. Use your skip-the-line ticket to bypass any wait lines and head directly inside with no delays!

Your ticket lets you explore the Storehouse, which is modeled like a giant, seven-floor pint glass of Guinness, at your own pace. Start at the ground floor Atrium and work your way up to the 'head of the pint', the seventh-floor Gravity Bar, as quickly or slowly as you like.

In the Atrium, see the copy of the 9,000-year brewery lease signed by Guinness’ founder, Arthur Guinness, in 1759, and learn about the four ingredients of the iconic Irish stout: water, barley, hops and yeast.

On the First Floor, find out all about the Guinness brewing and barreling process through virtual exhibits, equipment displays and videos on the craft of the coopers — the original wooden barrel-makers. Then, over the next three floors, immerse yourself in the Guinness story through a host of interactive displays and multi-sensory experiences. Discover the key moments in Guinness’ history and advertising, and sample delicious Guinness variants with handy tips on your tasting technique!

On the Fifth Floor, enjoy some Guinness-inspired dishes (own expense) at The Brewers Dining Hall, and then, hit the glass-walled Gravity Bar. Enjoy a free pint of Guinness here while you drink in the 360-degree views over Dublin: it's the most spectacular bar in the Irish capital!

Before leaving, head for the Guinness Store to buy some Guinness-branded memorabilia — the perfect memento of your visit.

This is an amazing experience for the money you pay. I recommend going towards the afternoon between 4-6. There are no lines and no crowds...Until you get to the top. But the overall history of Guinness was shown in exciting ways and there are great activities to do along the way.

Great tour! Everyone must do this while in Dublin. I loved that you could tour it as your own pace and it was fun learning to pour the perfect pint of Guiness. The views from the gravity bar were amazing! This tour can get rather busy so try and go early!

So much fun. It takes a couple of hours to do it right, but even by myself I had a good time. I am probably more knowledgeable about Guinness than anyone I know. I also know how to properly build my own Guinness. A few days agter the tour, I was in a bar watching two different bartenders. Just from the way they built the Guinnesses, I could tell who was the better bartender.

This tour was fantastic. You did everything as fast or as slow as you wanted nobody rushing you. It told you of the old and new methods of brewing, and the history of Guinness. Will definitely go again if I go back to Dublin.

Saves a lot of time, the place is always packed. i would recommend the Taste Experience Tour rather than the self guided tour of the site.
