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.

An expensive, very touristy destination but when you figure in the nice view from the top, the free pint and other tasting it really isnít that bad and worth visiting. The place is a bit of a spectacle with the huge exhibits about the beer making process and Arthur Guiness worshipping. Also has a bar where you can get other varieties of Guiness.

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.

Visited on a Saturday in May, it was extremely busy with horse-drawn carriages lined up outside, droves of people waiting patiently in line, and 6 or 7 floors of tourists gradually filtering themselves upwards to the top bar. Really interesting self-guided tour for beer and history in general and as it applies to Guinness specifically, thatís just the museum part. The bars are at the top, the topmost not having even standing room for us to linger, but worth the 360 degrees of windows to look out about town. The bars one flight down were more interesting in terms of Guinness products. We tried a few things here that are not available anywhere else in Ireland -- we looked. Well worth the visit and entry fee, but leave yourself a couple hours to really soak up the history and samples.
