Visit The Guinness Storehouse located at the St. James’s Gate Brewery, the birthplace of the world’s most famous creamy stout. Upon arrival, set off on a self-guided tour of this vast Museum for everything Guinness. You’ll be `introduced` to Arthur Guinness, and as your visit progresses, you will find out how the drink that carries his name has travelled around the world. In the brewing section, you see, hear and smell the ingredients as they make their way through a series of vast machines and fascinating processes.
Another section of the museum will describe how Guinness has been advertised over the years and you’ll `visit` this famous drink at home and abroad. Just about every type of transport has been used to carry Guinness around the world and getting the product to market. Your self-guided tour ends in the circular panoramic bar from where you can enjoy splendid views out across the city of Dublin whilst enjoying a sample of the `black stuff`. Here, you’ll taste the drink at its best, just a few hundred yards from where it is actually made. Making your way to the ground floor, there is time to browse in the shop where you’ll find an exciting and wide variety of Guinness designed gifts.
