The ground floor belongs to actual creation of this luxury beer, which requires four main ingredients: water, barley, hops and yeast. The first floor is dedicated to the story of Arthur Guinness, the founder of the brewery and after whom the beer is named. On subsequent floors, visitors can taste several types of beers and gain an insight into the history of the 80 years of development of Guinness adverts.

In order for Guinness to be truly Guinness, you have to know how to pour it properly. This too is part of the interactive tour. The building is also home to an open kitchen where you can enjoy luxury specialities prepared by the head chef. However, one of the no-less-famous attractions of the Storehouse is its Gravity Bar which is located above the rooftops of old Dublin town and which offers a luxurious view of the whole city.

An architecturally unique building

The building in which the Guinness Storehouse is located was built in 1902 in the style of the Chicago School of architecture. This was the very first multi-storey building with a steel frame in Ireland and was used as a fermentation plant at the St. James's Gate Brewery.

Decision was made in 1997 to transform the building into a luxury visitor centre – the Guinness Storehouse. Redesign of the building was undertaken by the British design company Imagination together with the Irish architects RKD. Three years later, the Storehouse was opened to the public. Barack Obama honoured it with a visit in 2011 and it also played host to Queen Elisabeth II and Prince Philip during their state visit to Ireland.
