Value wise I had no real complaints, you get a nice tour & a free pint of the black stuff at the end. Service was very fast as well in the Gravity Bar although it was Guiness or a soft drink as youíd expect although that is what you go for after all. It was jumping but we got a seat & it was pleasant enough with decent views of the city.

A museum where you have to walk and read for yourself. Walk your way up to the restaurant, have a pie (I loved it) and go to the gravity bar for a pint and a 360 view of Dublin.
Very nice place, really nice people, pretty filled souvenir shop and just really fun to do.

I whent there with a tour group of 20yr olds and I was 17 at the time. They card at the entrance of the brewery not the bar since i was in a tour group we went around the lines at the Brewery and i got to Drink in the gravity Bar. Everyone was giving away their free pints passes so i got four free Pints of Draught Woot.

Fun to visit at least once. To taste different Guinness beers like the Foreign Extra Stout, the Mid-Strength, etc go to the Fifth Floor bar.

I am really shocked with the negative reviews. 250 years of brewing, a heavy hand in the city and history during this time. Largest brewery in Europe! I would be disappointed if they didnít have a musuem type atmosphere.
I took their podcast tour from Trinity College to the brewery. Excellently done, it was both informative and entertaining. I stopped by many of the sites along the way. By the time i hit the brewery I was pretty fired up. The entrance fee was reasonable. Inside was very well done. There is nothing revolutionary in the brewing process but if you have seen one tour you have seen them all. I thought they did an excellent job mixing the old with the new. Guinness truly is a marval in the industry and the tour does it justice. There are a few places to catch a beer. You get a free tasting half way through. Then you have an option of pouring your own, grabbing a beer at the resteraunt(Foreign Extra Stout) or headig up to the Gravity Bar. The view of the city is worth admission alone. Very cool. There is a large gift shop as well. Although you do not get to see the actual brewing process the tour is by far the best Iíve been on.

OK, itís a ímust visití for fans of the worldís most famous black brew. Iím sorry to hear that itís become a tourist trap in recent years. I guess I was fortunate to visit St. James Gate during the off season and many years ago. It doesnít merit a repeat visit, but Iím glad I made the pilgimage when I did.

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.

This has got to be one of the coolest tours Iíve ever been on, meant for both the laymen Guinness enthuisiast and even the most geekiest and knowledgeable beer drinker. It has several multimedia presentations and (currently) a very interesting 250 year history of Guinness gallery. With a beautiful view of the city of Dublin and great food (even for a vegetarian), this was certainly a treat. Yes it was touristy but so is the rest of Dublin. Very fun and reccomended.
