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.

A very interesting tour! Just show the Viator voucher at the door and they direct you to the front to get your tickets and free drink vouchers. We had no problems.

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.

Great trip and amazing experience. Guinness perfection.

It was excellent to skip the line and walk straight in, when we got to Guiness. You can easily use half a day or more in there if you want to. There is a lot to see, try and experience, but I will not recommend it for families with young children. They will be bored (at least mine would)

Truly walked right in and did not have to stand in line. We went on a Saturday and the lines long and crowds big. Buy the skip lines tickets. Great time saver.

Brilliant , would highly recommend.

Would give 7 out of 5 if that was possible. This isn't a tour of a working brewery but is magnificent in its detail. It is a 7 story building devoted to the story of Guinness and then a pint sample each at the top floor bar complete with magnificent view to end your tour. Wasn't sure about whether we would like Guinness coming from Australia and not being beer drinkers but loved it and only drank Guinness for the rest of the time we were in Ireland. Will try it again now that we are home in Aus and also understand that they are looking at making Guinness in Australia which should solve the problem of the issues of transport spoiling the Guinness.

Skip the Line ticket is the best ticket to go , the line up can be very long if you buy the ticket there .... The staff are friendly .... The roof top bar with the view can be very crowded ... But it's interesting , do this tour and very satisfied and enjoyable ... Don't forget your free drink .... cheers

Great tour and I really enjoyed learning about the process of making beer, although my favorite part was going to the highest room and getting the nearly 360 degree view of the city's skyline!
