Skip the Line: Guinness Storehouse Entrance Ticket
Make your own way to the Guinness Storehouse, the seven-floor exhibition space at the St James’s Gate Brewery in central Dublin, where Guinness was first brewed in 1759. Enjoy a quicker entrance to one of Dublin's top attractions with this fast-track pass.
Your ticket lets you explore the Storehouse, which is modeled like a giant, seven-floor pint glass of Guinness, at your own pace. Start at the ground floor Atrium and work your way up to the 'head of the pint', the seventh-floor Gravity Bar, as quickly or slowly as you like.
In the Atrium, see the copy of the 9,000-year brewery lease signed by Guinness’ founder, Arthur Guinness, in 1759, and learn about the four ingredients of the iconic Irish stout: water, barley, hops and yeast.
On the First Floor, find out all about the Guinness brewing and barreling process through virtual exhibits, equipment displays and videos on the craft of the coopers — the original wooden barrel-makers. Then, over the next three floors, immerse yourself in the Guinness story through a host of interactive displays and multi-sensory experiences. Discover the key moments in Guinness’ history and advertising, and sample delicious Guinness variants with handy tips on your tasting technique!
On the Fifth Floor, enjoy some Guinness-inspired dishes (own expense) at The 1837 Bar and Brasserie and Arthur's Bar, and then, hit the glass-walled Gravity Bar. Enjoy a free pint of Guinness here while you drink in the 360-degree views over Dublin: it's the most spectacular bar in the Irish capital!
Before leaving, head for the Guinness Store to buy some Guinness-branded memorabilia — the perfect memento of your visit.

Crowded but interesting tour of the making of Guinness! We did the self-guided and found this to be sufficient. Not sure why we were searched prior to entry though..
Our visit to the Guinness Storehouse was brilliant. Skipping the line is a must. It gets you started on you visit without any delays. The whole thing is awesome. It’s incredible how this whole business grew to such extent. If you’re in Dublin, it goes without saying that a visit to the Guinness storehouse should definitely be part of your itinerary.
Almost no line for those who didn’t buy early. Although most all of Dublin was booked up for the month, so the idea that September is a good time to visit is a bit off, booking the tour on a week day is a good idea.
Skip the lines made this experience more enjoyable than it might have been had we needed to wait in a fairly long line. We were able to walk right in, which made all the difference in our overall appreciation for the Book of Kels exhibit.
Fun Great Food Great Beer Whats not to love!! You can spend all day here and not be bored. Fascinating
As the number one attraction in Dublin it is very crowded. The place was packed with hundreds of people. I guess as a tourist you have to see it but man I could not move in this place. The pouring short class was fun. Would not do it again for sure.
This was a self guided tour that was fun and entertaining. The best part was going on the top floor to get a view of Dublin while drinking a Guiness. It is a little expensive in my opinion.
We did this the day we got off the plane. It’s a low key tour and you get a beer! We also ate there.
This ticket allowed us to skip a sizeable line and begin the tour as soon as we arrived. We enjoyed the Guinness tour very much and were very impressed with the facility and steady flow of people through the well organized building.
Great learning about the Guinness making process! All the history from the hops to the yeast to the water and best of all the advertising were all fun to learn about! The gravity bar views were awesome!
An interesting tour to the Guinness Storehouse. Although unprepared for how large it was and how long it would take, the visit was really interesting. We had the chance to pour our own pint of Guinness and have a drink at the sklyline bar. A great experience!
Had a brilliant time at The Guinness factory so much to see and do. It's all very interesting and everyone is so helpful. Then at the end of the tour having a pint of Guinness on the top floor with the views it was brilliant. Would absolutely go back..
It was nice. We walked right to the front of the line. The tour was self guided and interesting. The gravity bar at the top was a great place to enjoy the included pint of Guinness. The views were amazing!
This is super fun! You will enjoy history, old adverstising , and Guiness economical contributions to the Dublin area as you ascend upwards toward your free glass of beer! Plan a few hours to enjoy the many displays. The storehouse stayed open till 7 which is great to know (even though it says last tour is 5pm) We couldn't get there till 515pm, and they graciously admitted us in!
We really enjoyed visiting the Guinness Storehouse. We enjoyed all the info and their were Irish dancers in the tasting room. We had lunch in one of the restaurants. Highly recommend.
If you're traveling to Dublin and intend to tour the Guinness Storehouse, this is the way to do it. It was great being able to walk right past the queue, present the voucher and start the tour.
Top 5 things to do in Dublin! 5
Well worth the money, especially for beer lovers. My teens were extremely bored, so I don't know how much of a family thing it is, but my husband thoroughly enjoyed himself. For the price, he got to attend a perfect pour class, enjoy a small sample, as well as a full sized pint, and go behind the scenes of where the magic happens. The gravity bar was VERY crowded, but has a lovely view. The lifts are insanely small, and you can't take a glass on the escalator, so we ended up going down 7 flights of stairs after waiting almost 20 minutes and still not getting a lift with room for us. I think the ticket should be cheaper for those who don't wish to partake in beer drinking some of us are beer lovers... some of us married beer lovers. There is a lot to learn about how the process takes place, and this history of Mr. Guinness, though.
Buying skip the line tickets was the best decision we made during our trip. Definitely recommend and worth the money!
The Guinness tour was very interesting, even for someone who is not that into beer. The general admission line was very short when we got here, however, the pre bought ticket gave us peace of mind for entry. Highly recommend grabbing lunch/dinner after the tour upstairs!
