September 2009 -- OK, so you have to go here once. Itís a major ripoff if you ask me, and swarming with tourists. But itís a fun-enough brewery visit and its the easiest place to find the sometimes hard-to-find Extra Stout and even Foreign Extra Stout.

It doesnít look like much has changed since the last time I visited a decade ago. Still have the museum tour thatís more about the brand than the beer. Thereís a big souvenir store plus the pints. Of course it was less than a fiver my last time here. Not a beer destination but a visit to Dublin feels incomplete without a trip here.

(Visited 11/2012): The Guinness tour at the Storehouse ends in the Gravity Bar on the 7th floor. It is located on Thomas Street at St. James Gate and is on the route of a couple of the hop on-hop off buses.

The bar offers a 360į view of Dublin. Vouchers for a pint that are part of the tour cost are redeemed at a small bar in the center, and there is seating around the perimeter plus several standing tables.

Not surprisingly the selection here is limited to Guinness. Despite not wanting to reinforce a cliche, it does taste better from the source.

Service at the bar was good, and they obviously take the whole "perfect pour" philosophy seriously.

We did not try any food during our tour.

Overall whether a fan of the beer or not, the tour is well done and the view is incredible, making this a worthwhile stop in Dublin.

Visited here in April í09 at the end of the brewery tour. A non beer person friendly tour I must add which I took with my girlfriend. The tour gives you a voucher for a pint at the top (of the pint!). There are always folk who donít want a pint so you may be offered a voucher or two if you fancy it! Great views of Dublin from up top. beers available are obviously from Guinness.

A giant tourist trap, but the tour is very well put together; lots of history and you get to try three types of Guinness during the tour: normal, extra stout, and foreign extra stout. With the beer samples you get snacks like smoked salmon on pumpernickel bread. It sort of has a museum feel going through here. The finally is Gravity Bar, which is a glass floored cylinder high above the brewery looking over the Dublin skyline. You get at least one pint of Guinness here for free. Overall, a crowded by well done Guinness museum with Guinness samples throughout. Gravity Bar at night could be a pretty posh venue if youíre up for it. Admission fee I remember was pretty high, but itís a neat experience. So for a craft beer place, yeah low score. But itís a fun thing to do in the afternoon and then later you can Temple Bar District it up.

Something of a rigid schedule to get to the bar. However, the information is interesting, and the process is complicated enough to be entertaining. The Guinness you could get anywhere nearby, but the view is unique. It is worth the money to have the experience.

Forgot to add the rating from the last time I was in Ireland. Obviously a classic place to visit when in Dublin. A fun little walk around tour of the museum with plenty of memorabilia. Very cool interior architecture. A real gem is the gravity bar where you have a 365* panoramic view of Dublin. I remember pricing being a bit on the high side

Great tour, donít miss this if you are in the Dublin area. The gravity bar was a great end to the end of the day. The first time Iíve had the Extra Stout and Foreign Extra Stout, they opened my eyes to what Guinness can do. Iím not a fan of nitro beers, these were a pleasant change.

Its a massive tourist trap but its a FUN massive tourist trap. Got roped into being the Gate photographer for a group of other tourists who returned the favour. I had no idea the tour part would be so long, we spent a good part of the afternoon here. Bars are pretty sterile for the most part but the top floor Gravity Bar has a great panoramic view. Unfortunately we went on a Saturday and it was jam packed with people, and so warm in there I couldnít stand to drink my pint up there so we brought it back down. The 5th floor bars have some of the other Guinness products, be mindful of the closing times, we missed out on them our first visit and had to sneak back in on a return visit! :) Kitschy, but worth doing if you have time as some of the exhibits are pretty cool.
