The Guinness Storehouse In Dublin: The Tours, History + What To Expect

A visit to the Guinness Storehouse is one of the most popular things to do in Dublin and it’s the most-visited of the many paid tourist attractions in Ireland .

Located at St James’s Gate, the Guinness Factory sits on the site where Arthur Guinness set up shop with a 9,000-year lease in 1759.

There are several different Guinness Brewery tours to head off on, and we’ll take you through the best of the bunch in this guide.

You’ll also get some handy visitor info (e.g. try and visit late afternoon!) along with the history of the Guinness Brewery in Dublin and more. Dive on in!

Table of Contents

Some quick need-to-knows before you visit the Guinness Storehouse

Although the Guinness tour is fairly straightforward, there are a few need-to-knows that’ll make your visit that bit more enjoyable.

1. Location

The Guinness factory is located slightly off Dublin’s south quays here . It’s a 15-minute walk from St. Patrick’s Cathedral , a 20-minute walk from Kilmainham Gaol and  very  short walk from some of the best whiskey distilleries in Dublin .

2. Book online to avoid the queues

So, you can just rock up and buy tickets for the Guinness tour on the day, but you’ll likely have to queue (the queues here are often very long). So, it’s worth buying your Guinness tour tickets online in advance. More on this below.

3. Opening Hours

The Guinness factory opening hours are Monday to Friday, 10 am-5 pm, Saturday, 9:30 am-6 pm, and Sundays from 9:30 am to 5 pm. If you book your Guinness tour tickets online, you’ll need to pick a specific time.

So, there’s some very limited free parking at the Guinness Storehouse on Crane Street, ( see it here  on Google Maps). There’s paid parking near the Four Courts here (15-minute walk away).

5. Part of the Dublin Pass

Exploring Dublin over 1 or 2 days? If you buy a Dublin Pass for €70 you can save from €23.50 to €62.50 on Dublin’s top attractions, like the EPIC Museum, the Guinness Storehouse, The GPO, the Jameson Distillery Bow St. and more (info here ).

The History of the Guinness Brewery in Dublin

guinness history

Photos in the Public Domain

When you visit the Guinness Brewery in Dublin, you’re treading on hallowed ground! It was the original site where Arthur Guinness began his brewery business in 1759.

Planning for the future, he signed a 9,000-year lease at £45 per annum and started brewing his dark porter-style ales. He used dark malt to create his stout, which was instantly a favourite with river and street porters, among other local workers.

Then things escalated

Ten years later, he decided to begin exporting, shipping a modest 6.5 barrels to England, and the rest, as they say, is history. By 1886, Guinness sales reached 1.13 million barrels a year, and the company was floated on the stock market.

That was in spite of the fact that Guinness owned no bars or pubs and refused to advertise (this changed drastically over time). The product spoke for itself.

The decline and joining up with Diageo

In the 1970s, Guinness sales had declined, so the owners had to relaunch it and introduce pale malt. The company merged with Diageo in 1997 but retained the Guinness brand’s rights and trademarked the Irish harp logo.

Now, in early-2024, Guinness is a roaring success both at home and overseas. However, not all pints are equal – see our guide to finding the best Guinness in Dublin for more.

The different Guinness Storehouse tours

As I mentioned before, we’ve done the Guinness Storehouse tour several times over the years. They come in the guided (during ‘normal’ times) and self-guided form.

Having done both, I can’t recommend the guided tour of the Guinness Storehouse enough. The tour guides are brilliant, and you’ll just have a more enjoyable experience.

1. Guinness Storehouse Experience (€30)

This is arguably the most popular Guinness Factory tour, as it involves polishing off your visit with a pint in the Gravity Bar.

This self-guided tour (affiliate link) costs €30 and it should take you around 1.5 hours from start to finish, depending on how long you linger. Here’s what it involves:

  • A Guinness (18 +) or a soft drink in the Gravity Bar
  • You get to ramble around the Guinness Brewery
  • Experience Canvas D8; a summer programme of culture and art
  • A guaranteed timed entrance

2. Guinness Storehouse Experience + Guinness Academy (€38)

This tour includes everything in the storehouse experience, with the one incredible addition of learning how to pour your own pint in the Guinness Academy. 

This version of the Guinness Factory tour costs €38 and, with the addition of the Guinness Academy, is pretty similar to the first tour. It includes:

  • Tuition in the Guinness Academy where you will learn to pour a pint

3. The Jameson + Guinness tour combo (€97)

Now, the final tour (affiliate link) will suit those of you that plan on also visiting the Jameson Distillery on Bow St .

This is a combo, skip-the-line ticket that includes both attractions. It starts around €97 , and it includes the best of both tours. Here’s what you get:

  • Timed skip-the-line entrance to the Jameson Distillery
  • Timed skip-the-line entrance to the Guinness Storehouse tour
  • 2 drinks (pint of Guinness + 1 Jameson)
  • Photo stop outside the Brazen Head (the oldest pub in Dublin)

Things you’ll see on the Guinness Factory tour

Places to visit nearby after the Guinness Factory tour

One of the beauties of the Guinness tour is that, when you’re finished, you’re a short distance away from some of the best places to visit in Dublin .

Below, you’ll find a handful of things to see and do a stone’s throw from the Guinness Storehouse (plus places to eat and where to grab a post-adventure pint!).

1. Whiskey distilleries (3 to 6-minute walk)

4. Kilmainham Gaol (20-minute walk)

kilmainham gaol dublin

Infamous for being the site of incarceration for many Nationalist leaders, Kilmainham Gaol has played a hugely significant and symbolic part in Irish history and the prison is well worth a visit. Lying a 20-minute walk west of Roe and Co, former inmates include Charles Stewart Parnell, Patrick Pearse and Eamon de Valera.

There’s a reason the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin is Ireland’s most famous visitor attraction. Not only is the home of Guinness ; the world’s most famous stout, the tour itself is fun and fascinating. Plus, you get to taste a lot of Guinness, so it’s a win-win!

History of Guinness

guinness storehouse dublin tours

Started by Arthur Guinness in 1759, Guinness has been a staple of Ireland ever since. Located in the heart of Dublin at St. James’s Gate Brewery, Guinness signed a 9,000-year lease to operate his brewery on the premises.

About The Guinness Tour

guiness storehouse dublin

The tour begins at the “Seal of Guinness” where Arthur Guinness signed his famous 9,000-year lease. Guides take you through the multilevel storehouse showing how the Guinness Stout is made from the barrel house to the fermentation plant. It all ends with a frosty pint at the bar.

Water from the Wicklow Mountains

guinness storehouse tour water

Once you learn about the early beginnings, you are lead to a blue waterfall where the freshwater from the Wicklow Mountains is pumped into the brewery.

Dave and I have always said that Guinness definitely tastes better in Ireland and something tells me it’s because of the Wicklow water. The tour showcases the natural ingredients of Guinness in detail. Barley plants are actually growing on the walls!

Guinness Casks – Firkins

guinness storehouse tour kegs

Your Guinness Storehouse Tour then takes you to the Cooperage and Transport floor to learn of how casks are made and transported.

Have you ever heard of the word Firkin? In Toronto, we have Firkin pubs all over the city and I never knew what it meant. The word Firkin is the size of a cask. It’s like a keg only smaller.

Tasting Tour of Guinness

guide to the guinness storehouse

The factory tour is fun, but let’s face it, we are all here to drink Guinness. The tasting room is the best brewery tour setting on the planet with dry ice and neon lights adding to the mood. The hallway leads to a stark white tasting room with smoke billowing out of slender containers.

The containers aren’t just for show, each container is filled with the aromas of Guinness. The smell of barley, malt, hops, and yeast fills the air. It’s as delicious as you ever could have expected.

guinness beer tour dublin

Once you are finished in the white room, it’s on to the next room that feels more like the inside of a grand ship than a beer tour. That’s because it is modeled after the ships that transported Guinness to the mainland. You can even ring the bell from the ship Lady Miranda Guinness that used to transport Guinness from Dublin to Liverpool.

Guinness in Advertising

guinness tours dublin

One of my favourite exhibits in the Guinness Storehouse was the display of advertising campaigns over the years. Guinness has always been quite creative when it comes to advertising their beer. From a whistling oyster to a bicycle-riding fish, there have been some very unique commercials out there.

Guinness is Good for You!

guinness storehouse tour ireland

What I loved hearing was that Guinness is actually good for you. Once upon a time, people drank a pint of Guinness after giving blood in Dublin to replenish their electrolytes. That is certainly one way to entice people to do a good deed. Did you know, Guinness is also considered a light beer? Even though it is dark in colour, it is light in taste. It has fewer calories than most beers and less sugar. So drink on people! Read more: 16 Fun Facts About Ireland To Prepare For Your Next Journey Abroad

The Guinness Harp

Did you know that the emblem of Ireland is a harp? When Guinness developed their label, they too used the harp but flipped it backward so that they could trademark it. When you visit the book of Kells at Trinity College you will see the real Irish harp on display.  The harp was greatly revered in history and often played at courts.

How to Pour a Pint of Guinness

deb beer

When visiting the Guinness Storehouse, you can either take the regular tour through the brewery or you can add a premium tasting experience. The Connoisseur Tour takes you to the Guinness Academy brings you into a private room where you learn how to pour a pint of Guinness.

  • You can book your Connoisseur Tour directly at the Guinness Storehouse Website.

You’ll master the art of the six-step process of pouring the perfect pint of Guinness that takes 119.5 seconds to perfect. The harp plays an important role in making the pour perfect.

  • When filling the pint, the bartender pulls the tap fully until the beer reaches the harp emblem on the Guinness pint.
  • Once it touches the top of the harp, they stop pouring and let it sit until the cascade has settled to a nice dark pint.
  • They then continue to pour the rest of the head.

Once you are finished you receive a diploma and a fresh pint of Guinness to enjoy on your own.

Gravity Bar at Guinness

guinness storehouse tour city

The Guinness Storehouse Tour doesn’t end like other brewery tours. This one takes you to the 7th-floor of the factory to the Gravity Bar. Enjoy the sunset in this chic bar as you sip on a complimentary pint of Guinness. It has some of the best views of Dublin. Once you are done, you make your way down the escalator to the exit where you can pick up your complimentary checked coats and bags before heading off to explore more of Dublin.

6 thoughts on “Guinness Storehouse in Dublin – The Ultimate Tasting Tour”

Thank’s for the great article. Everyone who visits this city should do the Guinness Storehouse Tour. My favorite exhibit is also the one with all the commercials and advertisement campaigns of Guinness over the years. Particularly the Bicycle riding fish, very appropriate considering that one of the best ways to get to know Dublin is by bicycle.

Great article, been thinking about going to the Guinness Storehouse with ages!

I’ve been dreaming of going to the Guiness storehouse for ages ! Thanks for the great article that made me book a ticket to Dublin for this summer.

Dave and Dev – I read 100% of the blogs through a feed reader except yours because of the wonderful photos and videos you have in each post 🙂 As always, this post also had yummy videos and photos ! Enjoyed them a lot!

Hi Vivek, thanks so much for the kind words. We really are loving making videos and are glad that you enjoy them too!

The gates at the Guinness Storehouse

The Guinness Storehouse is the most popular tourist attraction in Ireland. The historic site, located in the Liberties neighborhood of Dublin, was named as the world's leading tourist attraction at the World Travel Awards . The impressive visitor experience beat out the likes of the Grand Canyon, the Great Wall of China, Niagra Falls and Machu Pichu at the awards ceremony that took place in Dubai.

The Guinness Storehouse welcomed an impressive 20million visitors since it opened its gates for the first time in 2000. It has received a huge number of awards and accolades and is by far one of the essential things to do in Dublin .

In the past year, the Guinness Storehouse has welcomed an impressive 1.4 million visitors from 165 countries. So, it should definitely be on your Irish bucket list if you are planning a vacation to the Emerald Isle sometime in the future.

Here is everything you need to know about visiting the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin from pricing, what to expect and how to get there.

How to get to the Guinness Storehouse

The Guinness Storehouse is located in The Liberties in Dublin 8. The LUAS tram's closest stop is St James’s, which is a seven-minute walk away and goes from the city center.

There is also the option to take the number 123 bus from O'Connell Street. You can also walk from the city center or take a taxi.

What is it like inside the Guinness Storehouse?

We visited the Guinness Storehouse earlier this year and we were blown away by the experience. There is so much history behind this beloved drink, from its creation to its iconic ads to its insane 9,000-year lease at St James' Gate.

While things like the Stoutie experience are a nice touch, the highlight for us was by far the experience atop the Gravity Bar. The views from here are the best you will get in Dublin and the super friendly staff are more than happy to tell you about the best things to do and see in the city as they pour you your perfect pint.

Pints of Guinness are served at the Storehouse

What have previous visitors said about the Guinness Storehouse?

Looking at the reviews for Tehn Guinness Storehouse online, it's clear why it has become so highly regarded over the past couple of decades. One visitor from Nashville said on Tripadvisor: "The whole experience felt comfortable and relaxed. It was so cool going behind the scenes."

Meanwhile, one Yelp user, from California, said: "This was a must for me and afterwards, I love Guinness even more. I had to race thru the many stories of the exhibit as I had a time crunch but I did enjoy my complimentary beer at the top and spent a pretty penny on a top, jewelry and something to display in my house."

Another, from Austin, Texas wrote: "The facility is beautiful, with glass, special lighting, art, and modern architecture throughout. We learned about the process of making and marketing the Guinness. The sky view lounge on the top floor is fantastic but gets crowded."

One reviewer, from Nevada, said: "A fantastic brewery tour!! I've been on a lot of brewery tours and this one is top notch. Very nicely organized into different themed floors to learn everything about brewing from start to finish- the founding history, ingredients, making barrels, barley roasting, marketing/advertising, proper pouring, and of course taste testing!"

Guinness Storehouse

The Guinness Storehouse is officially the most popular attraction in Dublin. The old brewery started as a spot for humble beer-making in 1759, and has since been transformed into an educational museum. The Guinness Storehouse now offers seven floors of exhibits dedicated to the 250 years of history of the world’s most famous stout. The beer-centric exhibit is one of the top things to do in Dublin , but this complete guide to the Guinness Storehouse will prepare you to make the most of the experience.

When Arthur Guinness first began brewing ales, he based his operations in County Kildare. However, in 1759, he decided to expand and move the brewery to Dublin. The Guinness founder received an amazing deal on the St. James's Gate property: He agreed to pay a mere £45 (about $26) annually for the four acres of real estate, and he signed a 9,000-year lease.

Within 10 years, the beer maker was exporting his stout in small quantities, and the demand for Guinness soared from there. As exports grew, the Guinness family continued to expand the brewery; they eventually came to own 64 acres of land in Dublin city, where they built offices, staff houses, and all things needed for beer making, including vats and grain silos.

The building that houses the Guinness Storehouse itself was once the area where yeast was added to the brew in order to start fermentation. The building was constructed in 1904, and was converted into a museum and tasting experience in 2000.

How to Get There

The Guinness Storehouse is located at St. James's Gate, Dublin. Most people arrive on foot because it's located near the city center. 

In terms of public transportation, it’s easiest to take the red line on the LUAS to the James’s stop.

From O’Connell street, you can also take the 13, 40, or 123 bus. Exit at the James’s St. stop and look for the brewery signs. 

If you are driving, there is parking available on Crane Street—but keep in mind that driving in Dublin comes with its own challenges. Taxis are very familiar with the Guinness Storehouse and can be found at official ranks throughout the city. They will drop you directly at the entrance. 

What to See and Do

While there is still an experimental brewery on site, the small amount of beer produced here is not the main draw. The Guinness Storehouse is really a museum dedicated to the world-famous Irish stout. The museum is divided across seven floors, culminating in a rooftop bar that overlooks the city. The price of an adult ticket includes a beer token, which you can trade in for a free pint of Guinness at the end of your visit.

On the ground floor: You’ll find a huge waterfall and the Arthur Guinness Gallery. The museum overlooks an atrium that is designed to look like a pint of Guinness. If it were a real glass, it would hold 14.3 million pints of beer. This is where you will find a copy of the 9,000-year lease that Arthur Guinness signed to build his brewery here.

On the first floor: Head here to learn about the beer-making process. The exhibit covers everything from how casks (containers for storing beer) are made through to the transportation of the final product.

On the second floor: Here, you'll find the Tasting Experience, where you can learn to identify the aromas in Guinness and sample a very small taste of the beer.

On the third floor: This is one of the most popular floors because it is dedicated to creative Guinness advertisements that have been promoted over the years.

On the fourth floor: While you can absolutely enjoy the perfect pint served by a skilled barman in the bar on the top floor, one of the best things to do at the Storehouse is to learn how to pull your own pint at the Guinness Academy on the fourth floor. There’s an art to pouring a pint of Guinness, so cash in your beer token here to take a try at the supervised taps. An instructor will lead you through the steps, and you can then carry your beer to the bar.

On the top floor: There are no exhibits in the top-floor Gravity Bar, but it quickly becomes everyone’s favorite room. This is where you can drink your free pint (and purchase extra drinks as desired)—but the best thing to do is snag a seat by the window for 360-degree views of the city. The Guinness Storehouse is one of the tallest buildings in Dublin, which means that the bar offers a stunning vantage point from which to admire the Irish capital. Information on the glass windows will help you identify which part of the city you are looking at.

There are plenty of choices for food at the Guinness Storehouse, as well. The Brewer’s Dining Hall serves a traditional Irish menu, while the Cooperage Café has lighter fare like coffee, pastries, and sandwiches. No reservations are required to eat inside, but you must have purchased Storehouse tickets to reach the various restaurants and bars. 

The experimental Guinness taproom at St. James's Gate is closed to the public most days. However, you can visit on Thursday and Friday afternoons (starting at 4:30 p.m.), or after 2 p.m. on Saturday. Visits and tastings require you to first purchase tickets to the Storehouse and then make your way to the taproom. These events are only open to guests over the age of 18.

Special events are sometimes organized to celebrate the founder (Arthur Guinness in September) or to support emerging Irish artists. For a full calendar of events open to the public, check the online calendar.

Tips for Visiting

  • The former brewery receives around a million visitors a year, so it is always a good idea to book your tickets online in order to skip the line. Another reason to buy tickets in advance? The price of the Storehouse visit is discounted up to 25 percent when you purchase through the website. 
  • If you want to get away from the general crowd, you can book a Connoisseur Experience and be guided through tastings at a private bar.
  • The museum experience is child-friendly, but those under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. The price of a child’s ticket includes a free soft drink.
  • Don't arrive too late in the afternoon. The Storehouse closes at 7 p.m., but the last entry is at 5 p.m.. You’ll want to be there by 4:30 p.m. to ensure you get through the doors in time. During July and August, you have a bit more time because the last entrance is extended to 7 p.m., with the Storehouse closing at 9 p.m.
  • Guinness is still brewed onsite at St. James’s Gate, but you won’t actually see the beer being made. However, the informative and entertaining exhibits walk you through every step of the brewing process.
  • Visiting the Guinness Storehouse is a self-guided experience. Plan to be there for about an hour and a half.

If you’re visiting Dublin , you absolutely must stop by the Guinness Storehouse, which is one of the most-visited attractions in all of Ireland! Don’t let that statistic fool you; the Guinness Storehouse experience is really unlike any other brewery tour out there, and it’s one that will really stick with you!

Here are some quick facts about the Guinness Storehouse:

  • It’s made up of 7 floors!
  • You can get an official certificate showing that you know how to pour the perfect pint of Guinness from the Guinness Academy.
  • Get a free pint at the end of your tour! It’s included in your ticket.
  • At the end of the tour, you’re rewarded with panoramic views of Dublin in the Gravity Bar, which is the highest bar in Dublin.
  • The inside of the storehouse is shaped like a giant pint (the world’s biggest pint, to be exact); if it were to be filled, there would be 14 million pints in it!

Woohoo, you’re planning a trip to Dublin! Here are some of our top recommendations.

History of the Guinness Storehouse

sign that says guinness st. james's gate brewery dublin

Arthur Guinness, with a 100-pound inheritance from his godfather, signed a 9000-year lease in 1759 at St. James Gate Brewery. Yes, you heard me right – a 9000-year lease .

That lease is still going strong on the 4 acres of land! For a while up through the 19th century, this brewery was also the largest in the world.

Believe it or not, the Guinness family has also helped out Ireland a lot over the years. Firstly, the brewery gave many people in Dublin jobs (with good compensation!) and even provided more rights to its workers back when many places didn’t.

The family has also aided with the construction of St. Patrick’s Cathedral, helping with reconstruction often. Also, if you happen to stop by St. Stephen’s Green, you may realize that the family also helped with making it a prominent park in the city!

Buying Tickets to the Guinness Storehouse

The easiest way to purchase tickets is to go to the Guinness Storehouse website and purchase them ahead of time. You can purchase tickets for a time slot, and that’s when you’ll be granted entry.

For anyone over 18, tickets start at €19.50, for children 13 – 17, tickets are €16, and for children 6 – 12, tickets are €5. Any child under the age of 6 is free.

Notice how I said that tickets start at €19.50… that’s because ticket prices can change depending on how busy the time is that you choose. Keep that in mind when purchasing your tickets!

If you purchase your tickets ahead of time, it’s super easy to get into the storehouse. All you have to do is go and type in your information once you arrive and your tickets are printed. Then you can waltz right in and begin your self-guided tour!

How to Get to the Guinness Storehouse

The Guinness Storehouse is easily accessible by public transportation, which is how I got there.

Black sign that says Guinness Storehouse with a white arrow

The first option is to get to the Guinness Storehouse by using the LUAS, which is the Dublin tram system. To do this, take the red LUAS to James’s. From there, it’s a short 5-minute walk to get to the storehouse.

If you’d like to get there by bus, you can get off at O’Connell Street from any of the following buses: 40 towards Liffey Valley, 13 towards Grange Castle, or 123 towards Walkinstown. Make sure you have a leap card or you’ll have to have exact change on you to take the bus.

You can also easily get to the Guinness Storehouse by taking a taxi; the best way to get a taxi in Dublin is by using an app called Free Now. I used this app often in Dublin and it’s extremely reliable, though taxis can be costly in the city!

Other options include walking (very easy to do if you’re already downtown) or taking a car. There’s first-come-first-serve free parking near the storehouse on Crane Street.

The Ground Floor

The ground floor sets the stage for a lot of the tour. There’s an orientation to your self-guided tour every five minutes, and I highly suggest sticking around to hop into one of these orientations.

Since the tour is self-guided, it’s nice to at least start off by hearing from a Guinness expert! After you’re oriented, you’re free to go off on your merry way.

This is also the area where the Guinness merchandise store is. There are many things in the store but don’t worry, you can come back to the store after you’re done with your tour if you want. That way, you won’t have to carry your stuff around with you the whole time.

One thing that I suggest you consider purchasing is a customized Guinness pint glass to commemorate your stay. My friend and I did this and we love our glasses so much! They come in a pack of two, so if you split it with a friend you can snag a deal. Plus, each glass can say something different in the pack of two!

After you leave the orientation, you become a little more knowledgeable about Guinness as you’re told about the four main ingredients in the beer: water, barley, hops, and yeast. There are some pretty cool exhibits in this area. Trust me; you’ll want to take some photos!

The First Floor: History & Transportation

At this part of the tour, you learn all about the coopers who make the barrels that transport Guinness. You also find out that Guinness is being transported to over 150 countries worldwide! Everyone loves their Guinness.

There’s also a section where you can learn more about Arthur Guinness and the Guinness family, giving you some of the history mentioned earlier in the blog post. This floor also features the Cooperage Cafe, so if you’re hungry, you can already stop and grab a snack!

The Second Floor: Smell & Taste Guinness

Now, this is where the tour starts to get fun. You get to experience the awesome aroma room, where you can smell each of the four ingredients that go into Guinness. You may be shocked at how amazing these aromas actually smell! It really does something to your senses.

This is also the floor where you are officially taught how to drink Guinness in the Velvet Chamber. Yes, this means you get even more free Guinness on your tour, though it is a mini pint glass!

Be sure to listen to the tour guide when they go over how to taste Guinness; it actually does make a difference if you drink it the way that they tell you to!

The Third Floor: Guinness World of Advertising

Believe it or not, but this was actually my favorite floor of the entire tour! It’s where you get to explore the Guinness World of Advertising and see all of their awesome marketing over the years that they’re so well-known for.

clocks that say tick followed tock followed tick

Some of the awesome exhibits that you’ll definitely want to see include the fish riding a bicycle and the “tick followed tock” section. There’s even one exhibit you can partake in, making it look like you are on a Guinness poster! This is a great photo opportunity.

This floor also has a Guinness Advertising short film that I suggest watching. It’s a great break from the rest of the tour in my opinion!

Really take in everything on this floor; it’s one of the busiest floors of the entire tour.

The Fourth Floor: Guinness Academy

Now, this is one of the most fun floors because you get to pour your own glass of Guinness. This is, of course, not required, and it does use your free pint ticket.

However, there’s just something about pouring your own glass that makes you enjoy it even more! Plus, then you’ll have a cool party trick since you’ll know how to pour a glass of Guinness .

fish riding a bike sculpture

Though there may be a bit of a wait since there’s a line, I’m here to tell you that it is 100% worth it.

Once it’s your turn, you’ll be in a group with a guide who will teach you all about holding your glass at 45 degrees and filling the pint to the harp on the pint glass. You’ll also learn that it takes 119 seconds to pour the perfect pint!

Another stop on this floor is the Connoisseur Experience, which I didn’t partake in. You can book a stop here for an extra fee and experience a tasting of the different kinds of Guinness with a staff member! When I return to Dublin, I’m doing this part of the tour.

The Fifth Floor: Food

This is the floor where the Guinness restaurants are! The first option is Brewer’s Dining Hall, which has a lot of Guinness-inspired dishes and other foods that are traditional to Ireland. This is a more laid-back option with an open kitchen.

sign that says everyone's irish on march 17th

The next option is the 1837 Bar & Brasserie, which has both small dishes and bigger entree options. There are also platters that you could get to split between yourself and some buddies.

Lastly, Arthur’s Bar is also on this floor. This is your traditional Irish pub with small snacks to go with Guinness. Sometimes there’s even live Irish music in the bar, which only adds to the awesome atmosphere!

If you don’t want anything to eat on this floor, don’t worry. There are a lot of other great places to eat in Dublin !

7th Floor: Gravity Bar

Okay, I know I said the Guinness World of Advertising floor was the best floor, but… I lied. This is the best floor. Grab the pint that you poured and head straight up here if you aren’t going to any of the restaurants.

I highly suggest taking the elevator, so you don’t spill it. I saw so many people accidentally do that!

This is where you get amazing views of Dublin. It is the city’s best view and the highest point in the city too. You can even see the Wicklow Mountains from here, which is where the water used for Guinness is taken from; not the River Liffey, as many assume!

It can be very busy up here, so if you see an open seat, grab it quickly! The earlier in the day that you book your ticket, the less of a chance you have of it being busy. My tour was at 4:30 p.m., and it was so busy up here, but I didn’t mind! It only added to the fun.

Love Ireland! And the Guinness Storehouse is a must-do! A good glass of Guinnes, the views, and the entire atmosphere…

I totally agree! 🙂

This looks like such a great time! Alas, I’m stuck drinking Guinness at home (it could be worse!) for now, but would love to see this when the world opens up again!

It’s totally worth visiting one day! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!

What a great guide! When I visited Dublin I didn’t go to the Storehouse as I don’t drink Guinness, but it looks like a fascinating place! I might have to include a visit on my next trip to Dublin!

I think it’s great even if you aren’t a Guinness fan! I hadn’t ever tried it before until I did the tour.

Pinned for future travels! I just cancelled our May trip to Dublin. So sad. That will be the first place we travel when international flights open up. Dublin and Guinness are calling me!

I hope you get there eventually! It really is such an amazing city. I studied abroad there last spring and fell in love with the city & the country! Thanks for stopping by. 🙂

I love your photos in this post! I love all sorts of beer, but never managed to appreciate Guinness, despite it looking very appetising. Would be interested in visiting the brewery though, I’ve never been to Dublin but it’s definitely on my travel wish list 🙂

Thanks so much! Honestly, even if you’re not a fan of Guinness, it’s so worth doing the tour. It’s such an interactive experience!

I don’t like beer, but whenever there are breweries to visit, I am always the first in line! I visited the Alexander Keith brewery in Nova Scotia back in the days, I found the visit so interesting!

It’s totally a great place to visit even if you aren’t a beer fan! I hope you get to visit there one day. 🙂

I’ll keep the Guinness Storehouse in mind as a must see when visiting Ireland. Your visit sounds fun, and there’s so many interesting facts. I can’t get over the 9,000 year lease, that’s insane!

The lease is pretty cool; you can see it during the tour!

This is such a detailed guide! It’s great. I did this years ago. I must admit I poured a really horrible Guinness.

Thank you, I’m glad you liked the post! I’m not sure my Guinness pour was the best either, but hey, still got the certificate!

I didn’t get a chance to go here when I was in Dublin but this great guide makes me want to go back for it.

You should; it’s such a great experience!

This is an awesome guide! I went to the Guinness Storehouse when I visited Ireland in October 2017 and LOVED it! Gravity Bar was so fun and it was so cool learning about Guinness in general. 🙂

I’m so glad you liked it! The Gravity Bar was so cool; I loved seeing Dublin from above!

With any luck due to the pandemic, I’ll be able to visit Ireland next year for my 30th birthday. Reading this post made me SO excited to go! I can’t wait to visit the Guinness Storehouse! I felt like I was there with your photos and writing, it got me in the mood to start planning! Can’t wait to share with my friends!

Hoping you get there next year! Ireland really is such an amazing country. 🙂

Guinness Storehouse looks like such a cool place! I can definitely see why it brings visitors from all over the world.

I agree. Thanks for stopping by!

Wow, I didn’t know the storehouse was 7 floors tall – that’s huge! I guess the world really likes its Guinness 😉

Yeah, it’s crazy huge! Thanks for stopping by. 🙂

I did the Guiness Storehouse tour, but I want to do the more in depth one next time! My favorite part was having Guiness at the top. I want to learn how to pur it!

You definitely should! It’s really fun learning how to pour your own pint.

Such a great one! Since my colleagues went a year ago for a weekend getaway over to Dublin I was planning my trip. Last notes are done now! Really great article!

Thanks so much! Glad it was helpful. 🙂

What a fun and awesome post! I’ve been wanting to visit Ireland for awhile and would definitely want to take this tour. 7 floors is really big but it looks like there is a ton to see. I love how they got a 9,000 year lease. Lol. It seems funny they would pick that many years but it looks like they will use it!

Surprisingly the tour goes by pretty fast! I thought 9,000 years was quite random too. Thanks for stopping by!

I have always wanted to visit the Guinness plant! It looks so much fun! I’m not a huge fan of beer, but it’s such an iconic place!

It’s honestly a great experience even if you aren’t a big beer fan! Thanks for stopping by. 🙂

I’ve been to Dublin many times, but still ahven’t made it to the Guiness Storehouse. Will definitely add it to my bucket list for next time. Thanks for sharing!

It’s worth the visit! Thank you for stopping by. 🙂

Such an iconic part of Dublin. I still can’t believe I’ve never been to Dulin. Thanks for the great info.

Of course! I hope you get to visit Dublin one day – it’s my favorite international city! Thank you for stopping by. 🙂

Such an awesome idea for a post! I love Guinness, so I will definitely keep this handy!

Thank you! I hope you make it to the Guinness Storehouse sometime. 🙂

I’m not a beer drinker, but it is interesting how passionate people are about their beers, and Guinness seems to have really inspired a lot of brand loyalty!

I agree! It really is a fun experience regardless if you like to drink beer though because everything is so interactive! Thank you for stopping by. 🙂

Hmm, years ago, Guinness was my favorite beer. I don’t drink it that often these days but I definitely still like it and would definitely visit when I visit Dublin!

That’s great to hear! I hope you get to the Storehouse one day. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!

I would love to visit Ireland, and of course a visit to the Guinness Stonehouse is a staple in that itinerary. Such beautiful views from the top! Thanks for sharing.

The views are really amazing! It’s the only place in Dublin that you can get a view from above like that. Thanks for stopping by!

Such a great post! I went to the Guinness Storehouse when i was in Dublin and it was so much fun! I also got the certificate too and have it hanging in my office haha

Thank you! I also hung up my certificate haha. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

This is so awesome! I went to the Guinness Storehouse when I was in Ireland. Such a fun experience! I also go the certificate too and have it hanging in my office. 🙂

I loved the Guinness factory! Was there years ago with my mom. Now I’m obsessed with finding a Guinness as good outside of Ireland. ?

I swear it’s so much better in Ireland too! It’s probably because it’s fresher and didn’t have to be transported anywhere. Thanks for stopping by. 🙂

Ahh I loved the storehouse!! So fun pulling your own pint. This is a great post and really informative

I’m glad you loved the storehouse as much as me! Thanks for stopping by. 🙂

OMG, Guiness is one of my favourite beers! This has been added on to my bucket list hehe! Thanks for your insight and the useful tips so that we know what to expect-I am having an itchy foot now!

It’s one of my favorites too! Funnily enough, I hadn’t even tried it until I studied abroad in Dublin & then I loved it. I hope you get to the storehouse sometime!

Cant believe I missed out on this place, then again I thought I was going to move to Ireland and then Brexit happend and all plans were put on hold. These pictures however do make me want to book another trip to Ireland after Covid.

I also would love to move to Ireland – I was planning on going on a Working Holiday Visa later this year but I’m not sure if/how that’ll work out with Covid. :/ Hopefully we both get there sometime!

7 floors of Guinness goodness?! Sign me up!! Love this super helpful and informative guide! Thanks for sharing!!

It’s such a great experience! Thanks for stopping by. 🙂

When I go to Dublin, which hopefully will be soon, you can bet I’ll be going here. Although I might need to hurry if there’s only 8750 years left on that lease!

That’s so great to hear!! I hope you love the experience as much as I did. 🙂

Looks like a blast and so many cool floors to explore!

It totally is! Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

This completely brings me back when I was visiting Ireland. It looks so amazing! Thank you for sharing

That’s great to hear! Thank you for stopping by. 🙂

I loved the gravity bar at the storehouse! I also never appreciated Guinness so much before I was in Ireland. It’s definitely a must visit!

I’m glad to hear it! The Guinness Storehouse is one of my favorite touristy sights in Dublin. Thanks for stopping by. 🙂

This souds like just the place for me! I’m dying to visit visit Ireland and this will definitely be on my bucket list.

Guinness Storehouse Tour

What to expect on the guinness storehouse tour.

If you’re a fan of a pint or two of the black stuff, then now is the time to add the Guinness Storehouse Tour to your short city break itinerary. The Guinness Storehouse Tour is one of the highlights of any trip to Dublin, especially for those who consider themselves to be beverage connoisseurs or love foodie-themed experiences. Here’s our quick guide to what to expect from your visit to help you plan your trip.

How long is the Guinness tour?

This self-guided tour has a recommended duration of about 1 ½ hours, although guests are welcome to stay for as long as they like and make the most of their visit. As it’s fairly short in duration, it should be easy to fit in around other attractions and sightseeing commitments.

When is the tour?

The Guinness Storehouse factory tour is easily accessible from all the O’Callaghan Collection Dublin Hotels and opens seven days a week, from 9.30am – 7 pm, although it’s advised you plan your visit carefully as the last admission is at 5 pm.

Please also note that the tour is closed on:

  • Good Friday
  • Christmas Eve
  • Christmas Day
  • St Stephen’s Day

What’s the tour about?

Located in the very heart of St James’ Gate Brewery, the Guinness Storehouse has the distinction of being named Ireland’s favourite tourist attraction – which is saying something considering the sheer scale of things to see and do in the Emerald Isle! It’s home to the brewery which creates the world-famous Guinness stout, and highlights of the tour include the chance to see the world’s largest pint glass. There is also a fully interactive journey through seven floors filled with everything you could ever possibly want or need to know about Ireland’s long brewing history. At the end of your tour, you’ll be rewarded with a glass of Guinness yourself at the world-famous Gravity Bar, offering 360-degree views across the city’s impressive skyline. It’s the perfect chance to savour your new knowledge and take a few pictures of the stunning vistas below.

What’s the tour itinerary?

There is no official itinerary for the factory tour as such, given that the tour is self-guided. However, there are seven floors each dedicated to helping you learn a little more about what goes into each delicious pint of Guinness – and plenty of opportunities to take a break and relax with a drink or a meal along the way. The Cooperage Café on the first floor offers coffee, pastries and sandwiches, while subsequent floors tell the tale of how Guinness has been travelling the globe since 1769, as well as providing more information about the creator of Guinness, Arthur Guinness, and offering unique tasting experiences on a multi-sensory tasting journey which helps to bring the distinctive flavours of Guinness to life. There is also a chance to learn more about how Guinness is advertised around the world with the Guinness World of Advertising, helping you get closer than ever before to this iconic brand.

Guinness Storehouse entrance

Walking to Storehouse

If you are in Dublin City Center, we recommend you walk the distance of 2.5 km (1.5 Miles) to Guinness Storehouse. 

The 30-minute walk is lovely and will also take you over River Liffey. 

Buses take ten minutes from Dublin City Center to reach the Guinness Storehouse. 

You can board Bus No 123 from either  Upper O’Connell Street  or Dame Street . 

Buses run at a frequency of 8-10 minutes. 

You must get down at  James Street (Stop 1940) , from where the Guinness Storehouse entry is only 500 meters (one-third of a Mile), just a six-minute walk away.

Luas is the tram/light rail system in Dublin, Ireland.

If a Tram is your preferred mode of transport, you must board the Luas Red Line and get down at  James’s Luas Stop .

Once you get down, you must walk 1 Km (.6 Miles) to reach the attraction.

The walk usually takes 15 odd minutes. 

Put on Googe Maps to navigate to the Guinness Storehouse.

If you plan to travel by car, you can use the free parking available on Crane Street. 

It is a three-minute walk from the attraction. 

Since the slots are available on a first-come, first-serve basis, you may want to start early in the day. 

A limited number of wheelchair-accessible parking spaces are also available. 

If you don’t get a spot at the free parking garage, check out these paid parking lots –  Q-Park Four Courts ,  St. Augustine Street Car Park , and  Q-Park Christchurch . 

The Guinness Storehouse opens at 10 am and closes at 5 pm on weekdays.

On Saturday, the Storehouse opens from 9.30 am to 5 pm, while on Sunday, it is open till 6 pm.

For two months a year – July and August – Guinness Storehouse stays open till 8 pm. 

The last entry is one hour before closure. 

The Guinness Storehouse remains closed from 24 to 26 December every year.

The Guinness Storehouse tour is self-guided and lasts approximately 90 minutes. 

After their tour, visitors are encouraged to stay on for as long as they want and enjoy stunning views of Dublin from Gravity Bar. 

Since this is a relatively short tour, some tourists combine it with either the  Jameson Whiskey Experience  or the  Big Bus Hop-on Hop-off Tour .

If you want to avoid the crowd and enjoy the experience at lower noise levels, the best time to visit Guinness Storehouse is between 9.30 am to 12 noon on weekdays. 

From noon onwards, long lines start forming at the ticket counter, and the exhibits inside also get crowded.

This is why we recommend buying tickets online , much in advance. 

The peak tourist season for Guinness Storehouse is from May to September. 

The Guinness Storehouse’s 90-minute tour is a real bang-for-buck experience if you love beer, food, or history.

Having said that, even non-drinkers are known to say that their visit to Guinness Storehouse was totally worth it.

Here are five reasons why we think everybody must go on the tour –

  • The Storehouse is not a monument or a museum. It is a different kind of tourist attraction with videos, interactive touchscreens, exhibits, and activities that help visitors learn how water, hops, barley, and yeast come together to make the trademark Guinness beer. 
  • The Guinness Storehouse building is designed with creative visitors in mind, so you get to see smart quips and captions written all across the floors. Even the building itself is a brilliant design – it resembles a seven-story pint glass.
  • There is a lot of history to learn – Guinness’ advertising campaigns over the last 200 years, transportation methods to send their beer across countries, etc. 
  • There are few places where you can learn how to store, serve, and taste a pint of Guinness. More importantly, the tour ends in the Gravity Bar, the best place in the world to have a pint of Guinness.
  • You also get 360° views across Dublin’s magnificent skyline from the Gravity bar. 

Guinness Storehouse tour

Beverage connoisseurs and lovers of food-themed experiences enjoy the self-guided Guinness Storehouse tour.

In 2019, the Guinness StoreHouse had 1.7 Million visitors. 

Visiting Guinness Storehouse

Tourists go through the seven floors of pure fun and then sit down at the Gravity Bar and take in the views of the city.

If you want some guidance, you can opt for the ‘Beer Club Guided Tour’ at the venue.  Image: Ana Ribeiro

An official guide takes you through the first three floors – about Guinness history, the Guinness family, the brewing process, and the advertising floor. 

This Guinness Tour also has audio guides in Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Mandarin, which you can rent for two Euros each (from the ground floor).

For hearing-impaired visitors, a visual guide is available in international sign language.

All Guinness Storehouse entry tickets come with a 24-hour cancellation guarantee – that is, you can cancel 24 before your visit date for a full refund. 

Every tour ticket also comes with a complimentary pint, which you can redeem at the Guinness Academy on the fourth floor, Arthurs’ Bar on the fifth floor, or the Gravity Bar on the seventh floor.

Guinness Storehouse is a child-friendly tourist attraction and even has room for prams and buggies. 

However, an adult must always accompany kids below the age of eighteen. 

Needless to say, kids below 18 won’t be able to drink or purchase a drink.

However, they can redeem their Guinness Storehouse ticket for a free soft drink. 

Guinness ‘Behind The Scenes’ tour This newly launched Guinness Brewery Tour is a ‘Behind the Gates’ 3-hour Guinness experience. The tickets are 95 Euros per person, and during the 3-hour walking tour, you access the Storehouse, the Roast House, Brewhouse 4, the underground passenger tunnel, etc. 

This Guinness building has seven floors.

Visitors start their Guinness Storehouse tour on the ground floor of the building and end it on the seventh level. 

The sixth floor of the building is used for administrative purposes, and thus, there is nothing much for the visitors to see. 

Floors in Guinness Storehouse

Ground Floor

The Ground Floor has two parts – the Guinness Retail Store and an exhibit called ‘Our Brewing Story.’

1. Guinness Retail Store 

Guinness Flagship Retail Store is the most extensive collection of Guinness memorabilia and exclusive merchandise in the world. 

Some visitors pick up personalized engraved glasses at the Store. 

2. Our Brewing Story

In this section, visitors learn about the history of Guinness, what it takes to brew the beer, and the extraordinary lengths the company goes to make it the world’s number-one stout.

First Floor

The first floor of the building has three sections covering the founder, Arthur Guinness, the Master Coopers, and a themed Cafe.

1. The Arthur Guinness Story

This section narrates the story of Arthur Guinness, who was so confident about his brew that besides stamping his family name on it, he leased out St. James’s Gate area, where his brewery stood at £45 per year for 9,000 years. 

And that’s no typo!

2. Cooperage & Transport

Tip: A Cooper is a person who makes wooden casks, barrels, vats, buckets, tubs, troughs, etc. 

This section is about the role played by Master Coopers, who hand-made the wooden barrels in which Guinness got transported all over the world. 

The barrels used to be stacked so high that the pilots could spot them from their planes, earning them the nickname ‘Dublin Pyramids.’ 

3. The Cooperage cafe

Cooperage Cafe is a humble tribute to the barrels and the art of barrel making. 

If you wish, you can stop here to recharge yourself or stop at the 5th-floor restaurants. 

Second Floor – The Tasting Experience

This is the floor where you get into a multi-sensory tasting journey to understand the distinctive flavors of Guinness’s iconic beer.

First, you awaken your senses, then smell the distinct aromas, and finally taste the velvet-smooth sip to the very last drop.

Third Floor – World of Advertising

On the third floor, you enter Guinness’s World of Advertising and experience eighty years of groundbreaking print, digital, and TV campaigns.

In this section, you can also take a snap of yourself and imprint it on your beer pint.

They proudly call it the STOUTie.

Fourth Floor

The fourth floor of the Guinness Storehouse has two activities – the Guinness Academy and the Connoisseur Experience. 

1. Guinness Academy

At the Guinness Academy, visitors learn to pour the perfect pint of Guinness and then drink it, too. 

After learning the six-step ritual, you get a Guinness certification.

2. Connoisseur Experience

If you like VIP experiences, you must opt for the Connoisseur Experience, where you get a private bar to yourself. 

And a personal guide takes you through the flavors during the tasting experience. 

Fifth Floor – Restaurants

Three of the Guinness Storehouse restaurants – Brewers’ Dining Hall, 1837 Bar & Brasserie, and Arthur’s Bar are on the fifth floor of the building. 

1. Brewers’ Dining Hall

The look, feel, and dishes at this restaurant take inspiration from the 18th and 19th-century dining rooms in the vicinity of the brewery.

Brewers’ Dining Hall features an open kitchen and offers iconic Guinness dishes and traditional Irish food. 

2. 1837 Bar & Brasserie

It was in 1837 that Guinness and oysters hit the headlines for the first time as a pair that went together rather well. 

This restaurant, with a relaxed ambiance, is perfect for small plates, hearty mains, and sharing platters. Download Menu

3. Arthur’s Bar

Arthur’s Bar is everything one would expect of an Irish bar – Irish hospitality, Guinness beers, light bites, and traditional Irish music for a bit of foot-tapping.  Download Arthur’s Bar Menu

Seventh Floor – Gravity Bar

Gravity Bar at Guinness Storehouse

Guinness Storehouse Gravity Bar on the 7th floor of the building offers excellent 360-degree views of the city.

And that is why the Guinness Storehour tour finishes here even as you sip a pint of the black stuff while watching Dublin’s magnificent skyline.

You can enter Gravity Bar only if you have the tour tickets, and once in, you can stay for however long you want.

According to Tripadvisor, Guinness Storehouse is the top attraction in Dublin, Ireland. 

Check out two Tripadvisor reviews on what’s best about the Guinness Experience. 

I like Guinness now

I’m not a fan of Guinness, but I loved discovering the history of the drink and company. The whole experience is very impressive and unique, and you can explore and discover at your own pace. We stopped for food in the restaurant, and I enjoyed the Guinness burger. I highly recommend it. 

Being able to pour our own Guinness was great fun, as was understanding the techniques and details behind the design of the glass. 

You can then enjoy your Guinness, but the most fun was the view from the top, 360 bar. – TravelWithRosy

Great and valuable 90 minutes

This tour was fantastic! Even though it is self-guided, there is accommodation for many languages, and the pace of the walking tour is perfect. 

The intermittent need for ushers to move the visitors was not oppressive but necessary. 

The ‘Perfect Pour’ segment was superb, and meeting in the upper ‘Gravity Bar’ was a real international experience. It is highly recommended for anyone who enjoys any type of beer. – N4825MGdennism

Guinness Storehouse Tour – Planning Your Visit

The Guinness Storehouse tour starts at the famous gates

Sat in a cozy local pub, the incessant buzz of Irish-accented voices swirling around you, traditional music flows from a live band in the corner. In front of you is a pint of Guinness, looking like the absolute meal in a glass it is. The perfect line of white foam contrasting the almost black liquid underneath as you’ve waited patiently for it to settle. This is the simplest, yet possibly most enjoyable way to experience Ireland . But first, let’s take it back to where the nation’s favorite beer started – with a Guinness Storehouse tour in Dublin. It’s almost a crime to skip this national treasure location, even if you don’t like beer.

Where is the Guinness Storehouse

Since the company began in 1759, the Guinness Brewery has stood at St. James’s Gate in Dublin, Ireland. The huge wooden gates bearing the familiar harp symbol on one of the world’s most famous brews is unmistakable. While the actual storehouse building is a lot newer, this part of the city has an unbelievable amount of history with beer.

Book any city bus tour and you can all but guarantee that one of the stops will be at the world famous gate. Which makes it really easy to make a Guinness Storehouse tour part of your day . In fact, on of my favorite European travel tips is to take advantage of these city bus tours.

From Dublin’s busy and popular Temple Bar area, it’s about a 25-minute walk to the Guinness Storehouse. Or you can take a taxi if you want to save your legs. I chose to walk on my visit as it was a lovely day out – and I got to see a lot more places along the way.

How to get Guinness Storehouse tour tickets

pint of Guinness in Dublin

As one of the most popular experiences in Dublin, an already busy and popular city, you’ll want to book ahead to avoid disappointment. I booked my Guinness Storehouse tour a week before I visited.

When you book, either directly through the Guinness Storehouse website, or a ticket seller such as GetYourGuide , you’ll have to select a time slot. So while you might still see availability closer to the date, getting time you want may not always be possible. Earlier in the day is likely to have better availability.

If your time in Dublin is limited, and in any way around a weekend, plan ahead as best you can .

Pricing starts at around €26 but can be more for busier times like afternoon or weekends. Expect to see some variance on pricing depending on when you choose.

TOP TRAVEL TIP: The Guinness Storehouse is fully accessible with escalators and elevators throughout. That means anyone with mobility concerns or in a wheelchair won’t miss out on any of this magical experience.

How long will you spend?

The Guinness Storehouse tour took a lot longer than I expected. I honestly thought I would be in there an hour, see a bit of the brewing process, maybe a couple of museum-like exhibits and then top it off with a quick pint. I was wrong.

Yes, all the above is part of the experience, but you will get so immersed in it all that you’ll spend way longer than planned. From understanding all the stages of making Guinness, to learning the history of those who made it what it is today. Then of course there are tastings. And between all that is floor after floor of exhibits and artifacts from Guinness-making past.

The Guinness Storehouse tour will take you up through 7 floors in total. And the last one is the Gravity Bar with its incredible views out over Dublin. If there’s the perfect place to have a pint in Dublin, this is it .

All in all I would suggest allowing yourself around 2 hours to visit the Guinness Storehouse. You can likely do it in 90-minutes if you’re powering through, but you won’t be savoring that pint, and you won’t be allowing yourself time in the gargantuan gift shop.

What if I don’t like beer?

Entrance to the Guinness Storehouse tour

It’s not beer, it’s a meal in a glass. The lifeblood of Ireland. If you’re ever going to try Guinness, this is the place to do it.

I didn’t think I liked Guinness, having taken the odd sip over the years and deciding it wasn’t for me. But I did say that if I ever get a pint of Guinness I’m going to wait until I’m in Ireland. That’s exactly what I did, and I was pleasantly surprised .

Even if you don’t like beer, or stout, or whatever you want to call it, this place is iconic. We all know the advertisements with the toucan and all other fun commercials they have had over the years. The part of the Guinness Storehouse tour detailing the advertising was one of my favorite areas to explore.

The Guinness Storehouse is a history lesson, museum and factory all in one. Children are welcome here – although they won’t get a pint of Guinness at the end. So it’s not just about adults drinking beer, it’s a great place to learn more about Dublin and Ireland too.

The Guinness Storehouse tour

Guinness Storehouse tour entrance

I’ve taken part in brewery tours before. They’re usually a quick run through of the behind the scenes, and last maybe 20 minutes to half an hour. They typically end in the tasting room with a sample or two of whatever you’ve seen being made. The Guinness Storehouse tour blew any of these previous tours out of the water.

The entrance to the Guinness Storehouse tour is an Instagrammer’s dream with a replica St James’s Gate set up and decorated for you to take your photo in front of .

Proceeding to the exhibit, the first words you see are written on the black and white tiled floor. They state that “The essence of Guinness is all around you”.


Irish beer facts

There are four ingredients in Guinness: Water, barley, hops and yeast. The first floor of the Storehouse tour takes you through what each one of them does in the beer making process.

The four ingredients are displayed in a way that makes you feel like you’re really in the beer-making process, not just reading about it . Grab a handful of barley, smell the hops, run your hands through the cascading water.

DID YOU KNOW? They have a supply of the irreplaceable yeast locked in a safe here at the Guinness Storehouse?


You will be introduced to the history of the Guinness Family, dating back to the O.G. Arthur Guinness. Could this really be the most loved man in Irish history?

In an interesting part of the museum, find out how the brewing of this now famous beer began. And what led up to the signing of a 9000-year lease for the brewery. Now that’s a commitment.


Guinness brewing process

The magic of Guinness might start with four simple ingredients, but it is brought together with the brewing process. This part of the Guinness Storehouse tour focuses on the incredible 11-steps it takes to get these ingredients to your pint glass .

Find out the magical barley roasting temperature it takes to achieve the perfect Guinness flavor. Learn why nitrogen does to Guinness and why it’s used. And see some the equipment used to make your new favorite beer.

DID YOU KNOW? Every day at 10am there’s a tasting team to check the quality of the Guinness that’s been brewing. What a job!


test your alcohol knowledge on the Guinness Storehouse tour

One of the most interactive parts of the tour – other than the tasting – is the 10-question quiz about alcohol . Now I love a trivia game as much as the next person so I took on the challenge.

I won’t spoil the quiz, but through a series of True/False and multiple choice questions it turns out I still have a lot to learn. I got a really terrible score of 4 out of 10.

The questions will teach you about alcohol consumption, how long it takes your liver to process alcohol and tackles common understandings of alcohol effects and whether they’re right.


Inside the Guinness Storehouse

Throughout the Guinness Storehouse tour you’ll slowly make your way up higher and higher through the multi-level brewery. Despite how this could come off very factory-like, it is actually a beautiful and bright space.

Windowed-ceilings, colorful glass with mirrored panels to reflect is, as well as refurbished steel beam and brick interiors make for a fascinating journey through the Storehouse .

The use of everyday brewery-related items such as beer casks and machinery in the decoration is impressively unique.


sampling the Black Stuff in Ireland

All this talk of beer made you ready for a pint of Guinness? Hold on, we’ll get there. First things first, you’ll get an official explanation of what you’re tasting and how you should taste it .

The group will be ushered into a special room dotted with giant white vats which ooze beer scented plumes of smoke. These are the esters of beer, the flavors. Take a whiff and wait for the staff to serve up a couple dozen mini Guinness glasses.

Grab your shot-o-Guinness, and (without sampling too soon) head over to the tasting room. Here, while waiting for your Guinness to settle, the chief taste specialist will recommend the best way to sample your beer.


Guinness advertising

Unless you’ve been under a rock for decades you’ve likely seen the distinctive advertising of Guinness. Who doesn’t love the colorful toucan, or the any of the other kooky animals from the Guinness menagerie?

The advertising part of the Guinness Storehouse tour is one of my favorite exhibits. Iconic slogans and posters are on display with statuesque replicas of the most inventive animal creations .

You can end it by watching a video of some of the commercials. In a nod to the fact you have to let a Guinness settle before it achieves the perfect white head on black beer, you might remember the “Good things come to those who wait” commercial of the late-90s.


Arthur's Bar, Dublin

Not sure if you can make it through all the levels without a pint of beer and some sustenance? Or maybe extend your visit after checking out the Gravity Bar. The Guinness Storehouse has more than one place to relax.

Arthur’s Bar serves food, and of course Guinness. While the Gravity Bar is an experience, Arthur’s is a lot less busy of a place to hang out for a while . Take in the views of Dublin while you sit back and relax.


Enjoying a frosty beer at the Guinness Storehouse tour

You’ve made it through the Guinness Storehouse tour, up through all the floors, and you are now likely an expert on brewing. Time to put the hard work aside and reap the reward.

Your Guinness Storehouse tour ticket includes a pint of Guinness at the Gravity Bar. Hand in your voucher, wait patiently for the pour and enjoy the view while you drink .

There is seating, but the later in the day you go here, the busier it gets. That means seating can be limited. Hover long enough and you might be lucky, or use some Dutch courage to go make new friends.

Failing that, there are plenty of places to stand and savor your pint while gazing out over the beautiful city of Dublin. Spot some landmarks or hang by the bar to watch mesmerizing pour after mesmerizing pour of the Black Stuff.


Ireland souvenirs

As if you’re leaving this fine drinking establishment without a souvenir or two. Preferably a decorative toucan pint glass, a beer or two, or any number of items displaying slogans, logos or advertising campaigns past.

The marketing ploy of filling your patrons with alcohol then making them walk past the gift shop on the way out is genius at its finest . I succumbed and I’m not even ashamed.

Is the Guinness Storehouse tour worth the price?

Lovely Day for a Guinness

It’s expensive but it is an immersive experience. You’ll get to try a pint and some samplers which is worth about 15 EUR in itself. It’s a part of history in Ireland, and has one of the coolest bars in the city.

I had never had Guinness before my visit, and I’ll admit, I’m now a fan. I’m really glad my first ever pint of Guinness was in one of the best bars in Ireland, atop the legendary brewery where it was made. That made it even more special .

If it’s your first time in Dublin, the Guinness Storehouse tour really is a must-do experience. Whether you like beer or not, you can’t ignore the power of this famous Irish brand. This really is an interesting place and feels more like a museum. Of course, I wish all museums came with a pint of beer.

9 thoughts on “Guinness Storehouse Tour – Planning Your Visit”

I enjoyed my visit with you to the Guinness storehouse. I was fascinated by the exhibits and I did the same as you — experienced my first Guinness there and became a fan. I’ve learned it really does taste better poured by a master.

I really enjoyed how you included some fun facts about the process.

It is true what they say about Guinness – that it tastes best in Dublin. I tried it in England and was not a big fan but when I tasted it in Ireland it was completely different, much creamier and fuller flavour. I was at the Dublin brewery many years ago and was enchanted at the displays (loved all the advertisement board through the years). It was a great experience, as your article portrays and the view from the rooftop Gravity bar was one of the best views in Dublin. We stayed and had a few more beers, so the free sample one certainly pays off!

A lovely post that brought back memories of our trip to Dublin which – of course – included the Guinness Storehouse. We really enjoyed our visit and thought the museum was well laid out and nicely designed. We particularly enjoyed the advertising display – so many iconic ads! And yes, the Gravity Bar at the top was an essential place to enjoy a tipple. How nice that you enjoyed your first Guinness there and that you’re now a fan! Lots of good advice about visiting and what to expect.

Having a Guinness (and lots of it) is probably one of the most interesting ways in knowing Dublin and its people. As I haven’t been to the city, I think this is where I would likely to start 😉 This is truly a cultural touchstone carrying the very Irish emblem that is known worldwide. The Gravity bar is perfect to finish the tour and savor the tipple. Your tour reminded me of the sherry visit I did in Jerez that made me slightly tipsy at the end 😉 #flyingbaguette

Jan –

You describe a pint very well. That is coming from an Irishman 😁 I know where the Storehouse is located and your post does a great job describing it. Very helpful. 2 hours is easily enough time to appreciate the experience and enjoy the view of the city from above. I miss home now lol

I actually found the Guiness Storehouse fascinating. Once you get past the tourist stuff, the history of the beer and how it is such an integrated part of Ireland (and Dublin) history. I love your observation of filling with alcohol then letting them shop haha. Fun fact, the bbq sauce counts as a liquid and security will take it. (insert sad face here).

Oh no!! More reason to go back – and pack it in your suitcase this time

Whilst this is an experience I would probably skip when in Ireland, I appreciate your comprehensive guide to this tour and sharing with us your impressions and insights. Guinness and Ireland are synonymous, like Amsterdam is with Heineken, so I understand that the storehouse tour is high on many visitor’s lists. I like that the experience allows you to fully immerse yourself with the brand and is not just a quick in-and-out.

Carolin | Solo Travel Story

Very interesting, who knew there was so much to know about a beer 🙂 I loved the advertising part, it’s always fun to see how products evolve in their offer to the public. I have Ireland high on my list of places to visit soon and this experience will certainly not be missed on a trip to Dublin.

Review: Guinness Storehouse experience

One thing Rick and I knew we wanted to do as soon as our Dublin trip was finally happening was drink as much Guinness as possible and preferably have one of those pints at the Guinness Storehouse!

Luckily for us, our tour guide organized a trip there and bought us tickets for a visit. I was honestly a bit overwhelmed and blown away by how big the storehouse is and all there is to see and do there.

We live near Golden, CO and have done the Coors tour before and this was like that only 10x bigger and more immersive.

We enjoyed exploring at a leisurely pace and had nothing else to do in Dublin until 6 p.m. that evening and got dropped off at Guinness at around 11. We had plenty of time to discover all we needed to know about Guinness.

Unfortunately, our guide told us about some of the premium options when we got there and it was too late to book them or add them on. We really wanted to do the Stoutie experience even though it’s kind of cheesy and way, way touristy. It’s an extra pint of beer but with a selfie printed in the foam. What can I say? We’re kind of basic because that sounded like fun!

Another paid option was the Guinness Academy where you learn how to pour the perfect pint. That could be a fun add-on to the tour but we were also fine leaving the pouring up to the professionals.

So, we did the basic tour and learned about the ingredients that give Guinness its iconic flavors and ruby-red color, learned about the brewing process and the fact that every brew is taste tested 23 times, saw the 9,000-year lease, visited the tasting room, enjoyed a brew and the view up in Gravity Bar, and then stopped for lunch at 1837 Bar & Brasserie.

Our lunch was decent but they definitely bank on the convenience of being located at the storehouse. The food was fine but a bit on the expensive side for what we got. I think our drinks were better than our main courses as Rick tried a different beer by Guinness and I got a black velvet, half Guinness and half prosecco. Then we ended our meals with some traditional Irish coffees.

Overall it was a very fun way to spend an afternoon in Dublin. Even if you’re not a beer enthusiast, the tour is interesting and well worth doing – at least once during your time in Dublin!

Since our tickets were bought by someone else, I can’t speak to how easy it was to book tickets but the storehouse website does recommend booking tickets in advance to ensure you get in on the day and time you want.

Highlights of visiting the Guinness Storehouse & booking information

  • Educational information: You definitely learn a lot about Guinness and its history and its impact on Irish culture
  • Free tasting:  You can do the little tasting after learning more about the ingredients that go into the beer; as well as get your free pint up at Gravity Bar
  • Days offered:  Daily
  • Hours:  Monday – Friday 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., Saturday and Sunday 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Self-guided tour: We explored at our own pace and were told to allow 90 minutes to get the basic experience
  • Price: €20 per adult
  • Tickets : B uy tickets online

Tips for visiting the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin

  • Wear comfortable shoes:  The storehouse is huge and you will be walking all over the place, especially up and down some stairs for your tasters!
  • Take your time:  There’s no one moving people along so you can feel free to take your time and engage with the interactive exhibits.
  • Go at an off-time:  If we go back, I’d love to visit not during lunch to see if we’d be able to find a seat in Gravity Bar or just not be constantly surrounded by big groups of people.
  • Stop by the souvenir shop: We ended up leaving with quite a few and fun Guinness-themed souvenirs! They have all sorts of gifts and goodies and many that show off a distinct era of Guinness’ history and advertising.
  • Do not take a carriage:  When you leave, you’ll be offered a ride on a horse-drawn carriage and we opted to do it as it seemed like a fun way to get to our next destination. Do not do this. We were swindled and told one price at the storehouse and charged double when we were dropped off.

These Notorious So-called 'Tourist Traps' Are Worth Visiting, According to Travelers

Travelers are speaking out to say these spots aren't half bad.

Evie Carrick is a writer and editor who’s lived in five countries and visited well over 50. She now splits her time between Colorado and Paris, ensuring she doesn't have to live without skiing or L'As du Fallafel.

Ah, the traveler’s debacle: To follow the crowd to major, must-see sights knowing they’ll be met with overpriced services, entertainment, food, and souvenirs — or to avoid these sites completely and search out hidden gems void of other tourists. To some, visiting Paris without going up the Eiffel Tower isn’t seeing Paris , while to others, the complete opposite is true. 

It’s a question — or way of traveling — that isn’t always black-and-white. Most of us want to see the major sites — preferably without giant tour groups and overpriced crêpe stands — and stumble upon authentic places that few others will get to experience. So when is it worth following the crowd to a site you really want to see, even though it’s probably a tourist trap?

One user on Reddit , u/MarathonMarathon, posed that question , noting that for them, the Bund Sightseeing Tunnel in Shanghai was a tourist trap they ended up genuinely liking. “It's basically this short 5-minute tourist trap light show tram thing that takes you across the Huangpu River from the Bund to Pudong, with bizarre voice-overs. Sort of like some Disney attraction, but sadder, the very epitome of a kitsch tourist trap.”

The Reddit community responded, sharing the tourist-trap-inclined sites and tours that they genuinely liked and would recommend to others. Below are the “best” responses in order:

Maid of the Mist Boat Tour — Niagara Falls, U.S.

The 20-minute Maid of the Mist boat tour, which claims to be “the original Niagara Falls boat tour” — takes travelers to the foot of Niagara Falls where they can feel the power of 600,000 gallons of water crashing down and enjoy the resulting mist.

“You wait in line forever, the boat is packed, it seems cheesy ... and then you get up to the Falls and feel their power, you realize that the boat has the engine running at full power yet it struggles against the current and you realize that yeah, this is awesome,” said u/twoeightnine.

Original Sound of Music bus tour — Salzburg, Germany

The Original Sound of Music bus tour takes travelers through Salzburg, where "The Sound of Music" movie was filmed. The bus visits Mirabell Garden and Pegasus Fountain, where Maria and the children danced in the movie; Schloss Leopoldskron, the house, where the Trapp Family lived; and Church Mondsee, where Maria and Baron von Trapp got married, along with other sites.

User u/opuntialantana said the four-hour journey included, “Glorious views, drinks, snacks, and a Maria von Trapp lookalike leading us in singalongs as we drove from one filming location to the next. It was cheesy and it was perfect.”

Hobbiton Movie Set Tours — Matamata, New Zealand

At Hobbiton , visitors can walk through the lush pastures of the Shire and through the movie set used in "The Lord of the Rings" and "The Hobbit" film trilogies. The part-bus, part-walking tour includes visits to the series’ most famous locations, including the Hobbit Hole where Bilbo and Frodo Baggins lived. 

The 2.5-hour tour ends with a visit to the Green Dragon Inn , where a free drink concludes the tour of Middle-earth.

Guinness Storehouse — Dublin

The home of Ireland’s most iconic beer offers daily self-guided tours that include entry to the Guinness tasting rooms and a pint of Guinness. If you’re a true beer or Guinness connoisseur, you can opt for a “ premium experience ,” like a guided tasting with storytelling or a tour through the brewery’s historic sites — including their famous underground tunnels.

“When anyone came to visit [sic] me I always took them there; it never got old! It’s a well-curated museum and of course, the tap room is always fun to go to. Also, all my Irish friends were happy to go with me when I first moved there so it seems to be well-liked among people that live there too,” said u/tcpower2.

Hofbräuhaus München — Munich

Reddit user u/Triple10X said they initially went to Hofbräuhaus München “just to say that we've been there.” But after visiting several smaller German beer halls they felt that Hofbräuhaus was the best. 

The three-floor beer hall has a Bavarian restaurant and ongoing shows that take place in a historic, 16th-century building. According to u/Triple10X, “The food we got was phenomenal, the beer was obviously good and the atmosphere was eclectic with multiple couples around us all talking to each other in different languages.”

Moscow Travel Guide

  • Guide to Russia
  • Russian Destination Guide

Why travel to Moscow

Contrasts: 12th century monasteries and some of the tallest skyscrapers in Europe can be found side-by-side in this complex and captivating city. The diversity of this mega-city is astounding. Only a few steps away from the solemn red facade of the Kremlin and the sounds of righteous church bells, a buzzing night scene and alternative-fashion boutiques can be found.

Culture: In Moscow only the best goes. Be it a theatre, restaurant or gallery, the standards are certain to be world-class. The Bolshoi ballet company is reputed to be even better than the Mariinsky’s and “MMOMA” (Moscow’s museum of modern art) exhibits works of art as profound as any that could be found in the famed MOMA.

Convenience: Unlike the rest of Russia, it’s easy enough to get by with just English in Moscow and, driving excepted, it is surprisingly safe: the murder rate is lower than in some of America’s major cities.

Why visit Moscow

It would take more than two days to walk around the perimeter of the biggest city in Europe, Moscow. Many of its inhabitants barely know what’s beyond the few blocks around their flat and there are so many attractions that it’s almost impossible to know where to start. If there is such a thing as an antidote to boredom, Moscow City is it. The mind-boggling range and diversity of things to do, places to eat, parks, historical monuments and more means that a vacation in Moscow has a wealth of activities to offer for every type of traveler, from young families to retirees.

Reasons to Vacation in Moscow in 2022

The Bolshoi theatre is familiar to almost everyone as Russia’s grandest theatre, but what people don’t know is that there are many more bolshoi (big) sites in Moscow that are worth travelling all the way to Moscow to see. For more than 100 years, the world’s biggest bell has been hidden behind the Kremlin’s walls and inside Moscow’s main park (which is bigger than some countries!) there is the world’s largest outdoor ice-rink. Travelers that visit Moscow can stay at the Izmailovo, Europe’s biggest hotel, then eat at the largest and most historic McDonald’s in Europe and after that have fun at the largest European indoor theme park!

Ancient Past & Stunning Architecture:

As those who travel to Moscow will see, just because Moscow is a city of record-breaking, glitzy high-rises doesn’t mean that there is no history. On the famous Arbat street, time-worn, wooden storehouses and century-old churches are squashed up against grey, soviet blocks which are then towered over by 21st century office-blocks. Unlike its much younger sibling, St Petersburg, Moscow’s roots stretch way back to the 12th century. Within the walls of the Kremlin, the city’s oldest building the Cathedral of Assumption can be admired in all its 500+ years of age.

Culture & Convenience

For a foreigner who has never visited Russia, Moscow is the perfect stepping stone into this great land of mystery. From the country’s best classical ballet troupes to snow-white troikas trotting through the parks, all the highlights of Russian culture can be had in Moscow without any of the complications that would be expected in other, less developed regions of Russia.

Cheap as Caviar

In Moscow, everything is bargain when with the current foreign exchange rates being what they are. Even caviar doesn’t seem so dear when the exchange rate is at 60rub to the dollar, so go on indulge yourself! Take your 2022 vacation in Moscow and have the best of both worlds, with European luxury at very affordable prices.

Lena, our guide in Moscow was excellent. She was very knowledgable and could answer any question we had for her. We liked that she could pick up on our interests and take us places we might not have thought of to go. When we realized that one of the places we had chosen to see would probably not be that interesting to us, she was able to arrange entry to the Diamond Fund and the Armoury for us. Riding the Metro with Lena was a real adventure and a lot of fun. In Saint Petersburg we found Anna well versed in the history of the Tsars and in the Hermitage collection. Arkady in Veliky Novgorod was a very good guide and answered all of our questions with ease. Novgorod was perhaps a long way to go for a day trip, but we did enjoy it. Vasily was a great driver to have and kept us safe with good humour and skill. We enjoyed ourselves so much, my daughter says she is already planning to return. We would both have no hesistation to recommend ExpresstoRussia to anyone we know.

Just wanted to let you know that My grandson Bruno and I couldn´t have been more pleased with our week in Moscow (6/15 - 6/21). We were absolutely enchanted with the whole experience, including getting lost a couple of times in the Metro during our free time. Although both our guides (both Eleanas) were excellent, I would particularly commend the first one (she took us to the Tatiakov, the KGB tour, and to that beautiful cemetery where so many great Russian artists, authors, composers, musicians, militarists, and politicians are buried). Her knowledge is encyclopedic; and her understanding of today´s Russia as a product of its past was, for us, truly enlightening. I will be taking another tour in Russia, with my wife, within the next two or three years. I will be in touch with you when the time comes. Meanwhile, I will refer you to other potential visitors to Russia as I meet them.

We had a great time both in Moscow and St Petersburg. Your travel agency was excellent in coordinating the whole trip. Everything worked like clockwork. The guides assigned to us were very nice and friendly. They had a great knowledge of their subjects. The cars and the drivers were great. The hotels were good and the itinerary was good. All in all, it was a wonderful experience. It was nice dealing with you and your company. Thank you very much for a great Russian experience. Have a great future ahead

Your 48-hour tour guide of Moscow this winter!

guinness storehouse tour duration

9 am – Visit the Red Square 

Christmas market on Red Square

Christmas market on Red Square

The first thing that every tourist should do by default is visit the very heart of Moscow – it’s main and most beautiful (which ‘krasnaya’ actually meant in Old Russian) square! 

There are several ways to explore it:

  • Take a selfie with Spasskaya Tower
  • Have a warm drink at the Christmas market (which lasts until mid-January)
  • Visit Lenin’s Mausoleum
  • Shop in the gorgeous adjacent GUM department store
  • Visit St. Basil’s Cathedral (and learn that it’s actually several churches under one roof).           

11 am – It’s Kremlin time! 

Inside the Moscow Kremlin

Inside the Moscow Kremlin

Entering the Kremlin is, actually, a bit of a quest, as it’s a presidential facility with no general access. You need to buy a ticket or, better still, book a guided tour. Inside the Kremlin’s walls, you will find ancient cathedrals, in which Russian tsars used to be crowned and buried, as well as explore the magnificent architecture of the Kremlin that reflects the rich history of the country. And, finally, you could also make a quick visit to the Moscow Kremlin Museums and admire artifacts from various Russian tsarist eras: carriages, thrones, crowns and the most incredible armory and jewelry. 

For more information, visit the official website of the Kremlin . It’s open from 10 am to 5 pm (and it’s closed on Thursdays) in winter.

2 pm – Watch the changing of the Guard

The honor guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier

The honor guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier

A very spectacular (and free) thing to do is watch how the honor guard does their ceremonial change at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the Eternal Flame, situated in Alexander Garden, right next to the Kremlin wall. Every hour, from 8 am to 8 pm, the 1st Company of the Kremlin (Presidential) Regiment performs this rather old and beautiful tradition. But, be warned, it's often overcrowded. 

3 pm – Enjoy a green oasis just in the center

Florarium in Zaryadye

Florarium in Zaryadye

Just a few steps from the Red Square, you will find the fabulous Zaryadye park. Opened in 2017, it is designed by renowned American architect bureau ‘Diller Scofidio + Renfro’. You can walk among the very cozy botanical decorations and explore Russia’s climate zones, as each of them is represented in dedicated areas, complete with flora from those zones.

The floating bridge in Zaryadye Park

The floating bridge in Zaryadye Park

The park also has an underground museum, an “ice cave” and a 3D cinema, where you can take part in a virtual adventure – a flight over Moscow! However, the piece de resistance is a floating boomerang bridge over the Moskva River, one of the best places to take a selfie.

You can also grab a quick lunch or relax with a cup of coffee or tea in the park.

7 pm – Arrange a ballet night

The Bolshoi Theater

The Bolshoi Theater

Of course, the most fancy way to finish your day in Moscow would be to go to the ballet at the Bolshoi Theater (in a perfect world, to see ‘The Nutcracker’!). However, getting tickets to the Bolshoi is not an easy task and should be done well in advance of your visit. 

But, don’t be upset if you don’t manage to get tickets to the Bolshoi. Moscow has dozens of other options to see a ballet (or opera). No less brilliant performances can be seen in the Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Music Theater or in The State Kremlin Palace (by the way, this is another way to get a quick glimpse inside the Kremlin!).

10:30 pm – Have a late dinner in a fancy restaurant

Dr Zhivago restaurant

Dr Zhivago restaurant

There are not so many other cities with such a big choice of restaurants in a range of tastes and styles. In 2021, the authoritative Michelin guide announced their pick of the best of Moscow’s restaurants. And here’s our guide to all the places with Russian cuisine for any budget. But, if you happen to be in the area of the Bolshoi or Nemirovich-Danchenko Theater, then ‘Dr. Zhivago’ would definitely be a nice option (and it’s open around the clock).

DAY 2 

9 am – grab a moscow coffee.

Winter festivities mood in Moscow

Winter festivities mood in Moscow

Moscow is definitely a coffee city! You can find coffee shops on every corner and they all offer a huge range of drinks. Try a ‘raf’ coffee, a sweet, creamy drink that was created in Russia, or dare to pick one of the very unusual offers, like cheese coffee or a Soviet candy style one (check out our coffee guide here ).

10 am – Take a river cruise

Winter boating along the Moskva River

Winter boating along the Moskva River

Another exciting way to explore Moscow is to observe it from the water. Boats cruise along the Moskva River all year round. Most begin their route from the Hotel Ukraine, one of Stalin's ‘Seven Sister’ skyscrapers, and will bring you back to the same spot after passing the medieval Novodevichy Convent, Moscow State University and Luzhniki Stadium, the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour and giant monument to Peter the Great and many other sightseeings. 

It’s always at optimum temperature inside the boat, which also has huge panoramic windows. Select boats also offer a full dining experience, so it is also a nice place to have breakfast or lunch.

If you are not a water person, then discover other, unusual sides of Moscow – pick one of the activities we’ve prepared for you here ! 

1 pm – Visit ‘Russia’ Expo and taste a bunch of Russian regional cuisines

Russia Expo at VDNKh

Russia Expo at VDNKh

Until April 2024, the Soviet-era VDNKh exhibition park is hosting the huge ‘Russia’ expo, with tons of activities and expositions devoted to Russia, its culture, science and nature. Check out our special guide on what to do there!  

An entire ‘House of Russian Cuisine’ has been opened at the expo. You will find 15 food stands with flagship dishes from Kamchatka, Siberia, Karelia and other regions of Russia. Imagine trying a range of cuisines and dishes in one place without even having to travel anywhere, be it Altai pelmeni, Tula kalach or Caucasian pies! A perfect place to grab some lunch.

House of Russian cuisines at VDNKh

House of Russian cuisines at VDNKh

The VDNKh exhibition park is a great place to visit, in general! Its pavilions are the perfect example of Stalinit Empire style architecture and you can almost feel as if you’ve traveled back in time! You will also find several interesting museums in the park – devoted to space exploration, Russian history and even a ‘Special Purpose Garage’, which showcases the various vehicles used by the country’s leaders. 

'Sun of Moscow' wheel

'Sun of Moscow' wheel

And, finally, you can ride Europe's tallest panoramic wheel – ‘Sun of Moscow’ – that will give you panoramic views of the city – from a height of 140 meters!

5 pm – Ice skate with view & mulled wine

Ice skating rink on Red Square (GUM department store on the background)

Ice skating rink on Red Square (GUM department store on the background)

Ice skating is one of the most popular and affordable activities in Moscow. There are several great ice skating rinks in picturesque locations that are open all winter long. One of the biggest rinks in Europe is also at the aforementioned VDNKh or you can visit the one in Gorky Park, another very popular Moscow spot, or the small, but fancy rink – right on Red Square! 

All the parks offer ice skate rental, so the only things you need are warm clothes, a charged phone to record your memories and a good mood!  Moscow also gets dark at 4:30 pm in winter and hundreds of lights are switched on, turning the city into a giant fairy tale!

And, if you are not a sports person, we’ve picked several other unusual activities that you could do in Moscow instead. For example, did you know that there is an entire district of dacha (countryside) houses, just 10 minutes from the center, surrounded by giant new highrises? How about taking a stroll there and feeling the early Soviet atmosphere?

8 pm – Warm up & laugh out loud

After all these outdoor activities, what could be better than a warm cozy bar with a hot drink and nice company? Moscow is a city full of entertainment for all tastes. So, if you know the Russian language or want to practice it, go to a theater or catch a stand-up comedy show. Moscow even has comedy shows in English, where you can hear both Russians speaking fluent English or foreigners (including Brits and Americans) who live in Russia speaking in broken or heavily-accented Russian (Check their show dates on the ‘ Moscow English Comedy ’ Telegram channel)!

11 pm – Finish by partying the night away!

Moscow never sleeps, as you might have heard. Which means there are plenty of bars and nightclubs where you can have a drink (or two or three; be sure to check out how Russians make Black Russian and White Russian cocktails) and chat with incredibly different people. Have fun and don’t miss your flight (or miss it and stay longer in the best city in the world!)!

That's it! See you soon in Moscow
