A day in Dublin requires a visit to the Guinness Storehouse.
The tour of the Guinness Storehouse is a self guided interactive museum exhibit where you can learn the history of Guinness, and all about the brewing process. There is quite a bit to see, so plan about 1 1/2 hours.
Make sure to stop by the Guinness Academy where you can learn to pour the perfect pint. You’ll even get a certificate for it!
I recommend taking the Connoisseur Experience.
The Connoisseur Sessions are held at a swanky private bar, and limited to 14 people at a time. It’s worth upgrading your ticket for this intimate experience!
Once you’ve finished the Guinness Storehouse tour, you’ll head over to the private Connoisseur Bar to taste what Guinness has to offer. Get ready… You’re in for a treat!
I had no idea how many different beers they made! You’ll learn all about them as your bartender guides you through the variations, plus you’ll get to taste them too!
Once you’ve been introduced to all the varieties offered, you will be guided back to what Guinness is known best for… It’s iconic stout.
Next up, you will get to learn how to pour the perfect pint. They even let you behind the bar for this one! What a fun experience. I’m pretty sure I could get a job as a bartender now… After all, I’ve been trained at Guinness!
As you sit and enjoy the perfect pint that you’ve just poured, the bartender announces that you can bring home one of your favorites from the tasting. I really enjoyed the Dublin Porter, and was more than happy to take a bottle home.

The fun doesn’t have to end yet! Make sure to head up top to the Gravity Bar. Grab another pint while enjoying the 360° views of Dublin. It doesn’t get much better than this.
If you need some food in your belly after all the beer, swing by Brewers’ Dining Hall. They menu is huge, and the food delicious.
