    Enjoy as an experience, don't expect a brewery tour
    I think some beforehand research about what to expect is key to getting the most out of this experience. We had read some travel guides, that made good recommendations (like going earlier in the day, booking entry tickets online ahead of time) and described accurately what to expect. If go in expecting more of a museum experience, rather than a live factory tour, you will not be disappointed. We had done the Heineken experience in Amsterdam many years ago, and this was a similar feel. The exhibits were interesting. The tasting room was also pretty cool with some sensory aspects to go along with your sample. The views of Dublin from the gravity bar were outstanding! And the gift shop, though it did start to get a bit crowded as we were leaving, had some really interesting (not crappy) stuff that made good gifts for our beer-appreciating relatives

    Birthday treat
    Booked this as a birthday treat for my partner. And it did not disappoint! Audio guides available, as well as tour guides. The Guinness Academy where they teach you how to pour a proper pint was great and the Gravity bar is a must visit! Great 360° views over Dublin!

    A must do if in Dublin
    This tour was top of my list of things to do in Dublin and it didn’t disappoint. Everyone always said to me before visiting Ireland “the Guinness tastes better over in Ireland ” and I can confirm they weren’t lying. I’ve gone from being a casual drinker of Guinness to obsessed. Fantastic experience, you learn a lot while walking around and you get the chance to have some shots of Guinness, there’s a bar where you can purchase different types of Guinness (Nigerian, West Indian etc) in this bar they have Irish music and Irish dancers. A stoutie is experience (your selfie is out on top of a pint of Guinness) and a gravity bar where you have fantastic views of Dublin. Would 100% recommend to anyone visiting Dublin.

    Connoisseur Experience - ABSOLUTELY WORTH IT!!!
    ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! My husband and I decided to splurge and we did the Connoisseur Experience and it was totally worth it! Colm was our "bartender" and he was simply brilliant. Of everything we did over the 11 days in Ireland, the Connoisseur Experience is in our top 3 FOR SURE. The private, intimate setting with only 14 other people, the 6+ varieties of Guinness we got to try (and by "try" I mean a full glass!!!), and the wealth of knowledge from Colm (along with his personality and humor) made this an event to remember. The trip up to the Gravity Bar to round out the adventure was the cherry on the top! Highly highly highly recommend.

    Room with a view
    I must start by saying I don't drink beer, but love Irish whiskey. Having said that, please don't miss this experience. My wife and I did the self guided tour and it was perfect. The innovation and forethought put into Gushiness was impressive. The view from the top floor was well worth the walk.

    Must See!
    A truly remarkable experience from start to finish. Everything about this place is great, from the history of Guinness to the making of the beer to the (of course) tasting of the beer. And the mussels at Brewer’s Dining Hall were awesome!

    Very touristy attraction
    It’s like going to a tourist attraction in Las Vegas. Very polished and tourist friendly, but light on content. We wanted to see the distilling process and smell yeast and hops. You know, the manufacturing process. For what it is, it’s well done. And we liked sitting on the 7th floor sipping our. pint and looking out at the city. And we made the acquaintance of a lively Australian young lady named Kate. Really kind of average but I gave it a very good because of our experience at the end.

    Great, slightly long
    The Guinness Storehouse Tour gives a very comprehensive explanation of the brewing process. The storehouse is quite large, and they highlight each and every part of the Guinness journey in full. On entering, they provide each member of your party with a voucher for one beer at the end of the tour. The beer tasting happens at the bar on the top floor of the storehouse, and from there you can see 360° views of the city. Due to the vastness of the storehouse and the many exhibitions, the tour does get slightly boring by the end; however, if I were more of a beer connoisseur, I think I would have been more interested in the entirety of the tour.

    Fun Experience with Lots To See
    My husband and I spent three hours here and it was very fun! We did a self guided tour with drink tickets. There is a giant store on the second floor along with bathrooms and there are about 4-5 more floors above that (with elevators and escalators). There is also a cafe which has a delicious iced coffee with Bailey's. We spent the most time in the Gravity room bar at the top. It has windows with views that overlook the city with plenty of tables and chairs. The beer was good! We had a great time and it was definitely worth going!

    Almost a requirement tour to book for travelling to Dublin
    The tour was not though an actual distillery but though a converted building with several floors of detail about the distilling process and about the cultural impact and history of Guinness not only in the U.K. and Ireland but through the world. It is a multimedia experience that is engaging tp walk through. Almost everyone's highlight is the Gravity Bar where you can enjoy a pint of the Black Stuff. What we did not know is that you can ask the barkeep to add a berry syrup to your pint if you are one to enjoy Guinness straight. The gift shop at the end of the tour is full of Guinness everything from t-shirts to wall signs to bar small wares. Was worth the visit and was a good time.

I'll start by saying that I am not a beer drinker. But this is so well done that it didn't matter. I learned a surprising amount about beer brewing and what makes Guinness special. Exhibits are extremely well done. Don't miss the lounge at the very top with a 360 degree view of Dublin and your free beverage (including non-beer option for me!).

This experience was much different than I expected. I expected to actually tour where Guinness is made. My impression once I rode up the escalator was I had stepped into a theme park. One saving grace was the views from the top.

First time in Dublin. Had to do the Guiness Storehouse and glad we did, well worth the time to do.
Don’t expect to see any of the working brewery, as the whole tour is in one, seven storey building. It’s self guided so you can spend as long as you want in there.
Plenty to see and a few bars and restaurants in there.
We spent about two and a half hours there. Very good.

Overall, it’s worth seeing this place … but, I could not get over the number of people they allow into this place at the same time.

You end up buying tickets for entry at a certain time, but then when nobody leaves … it just gets hectic inside. I was practically tripping over people no matter which way I turned. It really took away from the overall experience.

I appreciated the free Guinness tickets, but it was hard to find a place to sit down to enjoy it … so we stood around awkwardly drinking our pints in a corner that was not packed with people.

The least hospitable place in the most hospitable country. If you want courtesy this isn’t the place to go. We were poorly treated for not having advance tickets. There are no signs to indicate you need that at the entry point and the staff at the gate are extremely rude.

A unique walking tour from the ground level through the history of Guinness all the way up to the skylight bar at the top for a free drink. Lots of fun!

We had such a good time at the connoisseur experience. We didn’t have much time to do the other so we just visited the gift shop and the gravity bar. It was fun to learn how to draw the perfect pint and taste the beers with explanations. We also had a fun group and we cool all enjoy together even though we were all strangers and from all over the world. Very cool.

This is obviously a very touristy spot, but it's very well done. Some of the exhibits about the methods of the past were very interesting. But obviously it's about the stout, and there's nothing like drinking a pint of Guinness, at Guinness, on their rooftop overlooking the city.
