Dublin, Ireland: Foaming over our Guinness tour PDF Print E-mail

Several years ago, when we visited Dublin, one of the first sites we wanted to see was the Guinness brewery at St. James’ Gate. The original was built 350 years ago, and a lot of suds have gone over the gate since.

Guinness now conducts daily tours of the current brewery structures for a $19 fee, which includes a local guide, history audio-visuals and sampling of Guinness products. Sipping a fresh brew at the plant’s upper level Gravity Bar offers great views of surrounding Dublintown. We certainly enjoyed our tour, and recommend it for all tourists who venture to Dublin.

To request reservations for the tour, go to www.guinness-storehouse.com. When on your visit and notice some familiar faces on the tour with you, don’t be surprised. Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip dropped in for a pint just a few months ago.
