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.

A great self-guided tour to learn about the Guinness brewing process. Don't miss the tasting room at the top of the building for incredible views of Dublin!

Very very interesting. Well worth the money. We went early Sunday morning so there was no line but when we left, there were quite a few people waiting.

It was fun. I impressed my companions by skipping the long line with these tickets. The museum displays were very well done. The free drink was a nice ending to the tour.

An excellent tour of this historic brewery. You are taught how to taste properly and get a pint of the black stuff included in the price. Even the gift shop is reasonably priced. Highly recommended.

An excellent visit. Very busy but nevertheless well managed by the Storehouse. The Guinness was perfect and the merchandise very compelling. Well worth the money and a few hours of your time. A must visit really.

The Guinness Storehouse Tour was great. Very big place and a self guided tour. We were able to learn how to pour our own Guinness ale and received a certificate to take home. Having the prepard tickets was awesome as the line to get in for the tour was long and we sailed right in. Was fun!

The Guinness Storehouse wasn't my favorite attraction, but if you're going to visit the skip the line ticket is a must. Lines were very long!

We were always told that this was the tour to take in Dublin. Not being a Guinness drinker, I thought it might be good for the view. Well, was I wrong. After attending the tasting room, and being taught how to drink Guinness, I became a new customer. We also became Apprentice Beer Bartenders, with a certificate, and had a wonderful lunch on the fifth floor. Oh yes, the view was great too.

One of the best brewery tours I have experienced. It was nice having the ticket and avoiding the line to get in. The Viator ticket worked great and the people were very friendly and helpful checking us in. The tour is like a visit to the Willi Wonka Chocolate factory. All that was missing was the Umpa Lumpas. Make a point of going to the tasting room. Finishing off with a cold pint in the Gravity Bar was icing on the cake. This was a fine tour for the whole family.
