A giant tourist trap. Expensive and really not worth it! Youíll hear alot of people say that you must go if youíre visiting the city, but why?? Itís not even a tour of the brewery! Granted the view from the gravity bar is quite impressive, but Iíd rather go out to Bray, climb Brayhead, view Dublin from there, climb down, and then go to The Porterhouse at the bottom and drink good craft beer!! A waste!
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.
stopped here on our visit to Dublin, neat place and a very interactive tour of the brewing process ending with an excellent view of the city and lots of the black stuff. One of the better large brewery tours I have ever done.
Very cool tour. My favorite part was probably the advertising exhibit. I also really enjoyed the cooper exhibit- very informative. The Gravity Bar is awesome. The 360 view of Dublin is beautiful. Of course the free pints of Guinness were delicious. I highly reccommend visiting if in Dublin.
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.
