      Two Centuries of Stout: Guinness Brewery Tour

      Dublin (Dun Laoghaire), Ireland
      From (USD) $140 Per Adult (Minimum 8) / $123 Per Child
      • St. James Gate Brewery: The birthplace of Guinness over 230 years ago, where the scent of barley and hops wafts from copper cauldrons on the brewery floor.
      • Guinness Storehouse: Drink in everything you'd ever want to know about the world's most popular stout, from advertising to the brewer's art to how to pour.
      • Gravity Bar: Relax in this famous glass-walled pub with a creamy, complimentary Guinness, and take in 360-degree views of Dublin.
      About this Dublin (Dun Laoghaire) tour

      When in Ireland you drink as the Irish do and nothing says Irish like a pint of Guinness, brewed right in the heart of Dublin for over 230 years. Your tour of the Guinness Storehouse, which houses a piece of the original St. James Gate Brewery, will reveal the history and secrets of the world's best known creamy stout. Best of all, you'll get a taste of "the black stuff" direct from its source.

      You'll learn about the creator of the creamy, frothy brew – Arthur Guinness, who used an inheritance of 100 pounds to purchase St. James in 1759. You'll see the original 9,000-year lease agreement (45 pounds per year!), and learn how this once-infamous beer (a "social evil" in the view of authorities) turned itself into a household name enjoyed all over the globe.

      It took only four decades for Guinness to become an Irish institution: In 1800, despite competition from at least 55 Dublin breweries, Guinness was served in over a third of the city's pubs. Today it's Ireland's most popular beer by far, and the brewery is the country's most-visited attraction. You can decide for yourself whether that's because of the beer's foamy head or it's rich taste.

      Your tour culminates in the Gravity Bar, a circular, panoramic watering hole high over Dublin. Have the bartender draw you a pint, raise your glass to the joys of travel, and dip your lips into the creamy froth of the world's best-loved stout. If it's your first-ever sip, it'll strike you as bitter. A sip or two more and it's all sweet.

      We hope there's a coaster

      The world's most popular pint deserves the world's biggest pint glass, and the Storehouse has it – filling it would take 3.7 million pints of dark, velvet-smooth stout. On a slow night, that could get all of Dublin through Happy Hour.
