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.

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.

This allowed us to tour at our pace and not lose precious limited time in Dublin by having to stand in a long line. Loved the 360 degree views on the top floor of the storehouse!

Happy to finally have been able to get the Guinness tour checked off my bucket list. The tour is good, but the volume could be a little louder on the screens, when there are people miling about view the tour it is difficult to hear and since I speak English I wasn't able to use the headphones to hear it. Otherwise it was great and we loved the pouring instructional portion at the end.

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!

Yes. Especially If you love beer. Impressive factory.

July 2015

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.
