Of course, this isn’t a place for beer GEEKS. But it’s the TOURIST attraction in Dublin, so for everyone who loves beer, a must visit. The food tasters you get at 12 and 2 PM are really nice. Pouring you’re own perfect Guinness is quite an experience as well. I wouldn’t go back in the first ten years, but I definitly recommend this place.
I took the tour and enjoyed seeing the history behind one of my favorite beers. Seeing some of their old advertising materials was pretty interesting. The food was good but a little pricey. I liked the view from the Gravity Bar. It is not the actual brewery though.
Good time. Overpriced for what measly selection they have. Surprise, it’s one beer. The tour was cool, but not overwhelming. No tour of the actual brewery, just a museum type of thing. Didn’t eat here, but the food looked good.
A giant tourist trap. Expensive and really not worth it! You’ll hear alot of people say that you must go if you’re visiting the city, but why?? It’s not even a tour of the brewery! Granted the view from the gravity bar is quite impressive, but I’d 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 you’re up for it. Admission fee I remember was pretty high, but it’s a neat experience. So for a craft beer place, yeah low score. But it’s a fun thing to do in the afternoon and then later you can Temple Bar District it up.
