The Guinness Storehouse is top of everyones Dublin bucket list, and it’s clear why! You’ll learn how the black stuff is made, pour the perfect pint, and most importantly sample the ebony nectar overlooking the Dublin skyline. Here’s what you can expect on each h floor!
Learn how Guinness is made, and the history of the Guinness family. The brewery tour starts in the largest beer glass in the world! It runs through the centre of the building and would take 14.3 million pints to fill the giant glass atrium!
Learn to drink Guinness the right way in the tasting room. Print your face on a pint and view their secret bar where they create your personalised pint.
Join the Guinness Academy, where you learn to pour your own perfect pint of Guinness. Enjoy the pint you crafted yourself and receive a certificate from the academy. You can book a private bar for the Connoisseur Experience with a personal guide to talk you through the flavours.
Enjoy the famous combo of Guinness and Oysters or stop for a drink in Arthur’s Bar for some live Irish music. During peak seasons (Summer, Christmas, St. Paddy’s etc.) The Arrol Suite opens with pop-up tasting stands, and surprise Irish dancing on tables.
The star of the show, the final floor! Finish off with 360 panoramic views of Dublin City and cash in your ticket for a free pint in The Gravity Bar.

If you want to get fully immersed in Irish culture then the EPIC museum is definitely worth the visit. EPIC is the Irish Emigration Museum, displaying the history of the Irish diaspora and emigration to other countries in an art immersive, interactive experience. You’ll learn about the 10 million Irish people that left the Emerald Isle, and how they influenced and shaped the world. You can also learn to Irish dance, so if that doesn’t sell it then I don’t think anything will!
After experiencing this breathtaking story, head upstairs where you can trace your own heritage!
Dublin’s Kilmainham Gaol is a sobering reminder of Ireland’s fight for independence. Built in 1787, the damp cells of this former jailhouse held many prominent Irish nationalists. Doors closed in 1924, and today visitors can tour the eerie building and explore its past through a number of onsite exhibits. You’ll be assigned a group and tour guide who are experts on the jail, our guide was incredible! The tour gets booked well in advance so make sure you book online in advance! You can’t enter the jail without a ticket, time slot and guide. Cancellation tickets for the day will be released online every morning between 9:15am-9:30am.
Each of these activities is incredible and extremely well put together. You’ll never have a dull moment in Dublin! If Kilmainham Gaol gets you wanting more sights to see, check out our guide to sightseeing in Dublin.
