What people are saying about Guinness Storehouse

Get Your Guide was a great resource as the Guinnesss Factory website wouldn’t accept my international credit card. We were let in a bit early and able to explore at leisure, enjoying 1 of 3 pint options at the rooftop bar.

It was so interesting. I loved the experience from start to finish. It was 7 floors of history, facts, funny anecdotes and I'm telling everyone about it. It was magical at Christmas time too.

Really well organized experience. Walked out with a whole new level of appreciation for the craft and the product!

Such a good trip, very detailed and interesting and the Guinness/view at the end was superb!

Fabulous exhibition. Don’t rush, give yourself plenty of time to look around. 10/10
