The argument: Is this “must-see” attraction in Dublin Ireland really all it’s cracked up to be? Some people argue that travelers cannot miss it when in Dublin, while others say to save your money and go to a local pub for a pint of Guinness. What both sides agree on is that you should be drinking Guinness in Ireland. Here are some things to know before you make up your mind if you will go to the Guinness Storehouse Brewery for travelers that want some Guinness Storehouse Tips.
What to Know Before Visiting the Guinness Storehouse Tips
1.) Check out the incentives online for preordering tickets!
Many travelers biggest complaint is that the price of the tour and the “free” pint is expensive. Sure a pint of Guinness at a pub is only maybe 5.50 euro while the experience of the factory comes at a price of 18 euro (without discounts). Therefore, BUY YOUR TICKETS ONLINE BEFOREHAND! The lines can be skipped if you make a reservation online or if you purchase the Dublin pass. Not that we are recommending buying the pass, but definitely check out the incentives for booking online before your arrival.
2.) You get one pint of Guinness…
…but it is said that it sure is the best pint of Guinness in the city (arguably the world!). Visitors have to remember that they are not paying the entry fee for only the stout, but also for the views from the Gravity Bar, the history, and the experience.
3.) The view is priceless
Both people who like and dislike the tour can all agree that the top-floor Gravity Bar is the must-see attraction. The bar offers a 360-degree view of Dublin with its floor-to-ceiling glass walls.
4.) The world renounced Guinness beer is actually not brewed here
Yes, it’s true! The Guinness Storehouse is more of a 7 story museum that honors the history, process, and culture of a Guinness. The architecture is still quite a sight to see as its 7 stories are shaped around the glass atrium which is shaped like a Guinness pint. The tour will take visitors on a trip through the brewing process and history displaying old presses and vats that once helped in creating the “black gold”. Visitors do get to see parts of the brew house, grain silos and keg yard along with the tour.
