Dublin is a very fascinating city! Even when I visited during St. Patrick’s Day celebration, everything was crowded, Guinness Storehouse was a must and we enjoyed so much! Here are some tips to visit this cheerful spot in Dublin.

As I mentioned, the city was crowded everywhere we go. I wanted to visit Dublin during St. Patrick’s Day because it’s my pre-birthday, so I always celebrate it big 😆, also I think it’s a fun experience and I went with one of my great friends and her name is Patrizia. So yes, it was crowded but it was very entertaining at all times.

Because of the short time we had in town, we decided to move around using the ‘hop on hop off’ bus. With that, you get different options, either for 1 day or multiple days. We got it for 1 day and were able to ride it first around town, listening to the stories, history and facts about the sights and the whole city and then decide where to stop. And of course, Guinness Storehouse was one of the stops.

Guinness Storehouse is located at St. James’s Gate (click here to see map), by a regular bus you can take the number 123 at O’Connell Street (they only accept coins), direction Walkinstown, and get off on James’s Street. I always recommend to always ask the driver so they can guide you better.

I suggest to save some time, to get tickets online before getting there. You can do it by visiting their website here. Obviously you can also get them at the place as we did, but the queue was long.

At Gravity Bar

The ticket we got was the basic one. That includes the Self-Guided Tour, enter to the tasting rooms (so a little bit of Guinness every other time!) and a pint of Guinness at the Gravity Bar. It was perfect! We had a great time!

I think it took us about 2 hours to explore, enjoy some Guinness and learn about one of the most famous beers in the world. And also enjoy the view from the Gravity Bar.

I’m not a fan of this beer, but I wouldn’t say no to having a Guinness, if it’s an Irish beer I prefer Harp, however, I enjoyed this place a lot! Sláinte!

While in Dublin, this should be on your list of spots to visit. Don’t forget to check out the post about Dublin and St. Patrick’s Day celebration.
