LOCAL ATTRACTIONS #2: GUINNESS STOREHOUSE

Recently awarded the most visited tourist attraction in Ireland for 2019 with over 1.7m visitors last year, the Guinness Storehouse is a must for those visiting Dublin. Located in the heart of the legendary St. James’ Gate Brewery in Dublin, this production site has been home to Guinness since 1759, when Arthur Guinness signed the now famous 9,000 year lease on the brewery. Guinness Storehouse was the former fermentation plant and has now been re-modeled into a visiting center for tourists.

The highlight for many visitors is the highest point of the building – The Gravity Bar. The Gravity Bar has fantastic views of Dublin City and is where visitors can sit and relax over a perfectly poured pint of “The Black Stuff”.
