The Guinness Storehouse Dublin Reviews
Essential sight in Dublin Jun 13, 2011
No visit to Dublin could ever be complete without a trip to the Guinness Storehouse, it is what the Eiffel Tower is for Paris.
This Storehouse is a huge complex and upon entering it, it is as if you are at some small branch of Disneyland. There are television screens, special lighting, special music, this is not just a brewery you can also visit if you like, this is an amusement park. It costs a hefty buck to get in and the first thing you see is a huge store full of expensive Guinness merchandise, but once you are past all that, it gets interesting. Not because of the exposition that shows the entire process of how Guinness is made and what it’s ingredients are, but because of the amazing architecture of the building.
It is very industrial, yet atmospheric, and even though it is pretty dark, especially at the bottom floors, the special lighting brings the place to life.
You can watch old television commercials of Guinness, learn how the barrels are made and have a taste of it ofcourse. You can pour your own glass of Guinness and finally enjoy the excellent view over Dublin from the top floor where there is a bar (you can also get other drinks here beside Guinness).
