Guinness Storehouse

From Visit Dublin:  

Guinness is synonymous with Ireland and no visit to Dublin is complete without a trip to the Guinness Storehouse – the Home of Guinness.

Located in the heart of the legendary St. James’s Gate Brewery in Dublin, this production site has been home to the Guinness Brewery since 1759, when Arthur Guinness signed a lease for 9,000 years. The Guinness Storehouse building dates back to 1904 and is built in the style of the Chicago School of Architecture. It was once the fermentation plant of the brewery and is now a seven-storey visitor experience dedicated to the history of the making of this world famous beer.

The Guinness Storehouse is the Home of Guinness, where you will discover what goes into the making of each and every pint, and learn about the incredible brand history stretching over 250 years.

Guinness must be raking in the money!  Never mind beer sales worldwide!  The Guinness Storehouse is huge, busy and crazy!!!  Then there is a giant gift shop too!

Luckily the concierge at my hotel printed out my ticket to pass/jump the line.

On Saturday 11/28/15 when I got there in the afternoon there was a huge crowd waiting to get in.  The entrance fee is 18 Euros, and that includes a pint once you reach the Gravity Bar on the seventh floor.

To get to the seventh floor is like going through Willy Wonka’s Factory.  There is just so much to do and see.  Plus on some floors there was live music too!

I took a lot of photos here, but these are some of my favorite ones!  (plus I saw U2 messages everywhere!)
