Ireland: Guinness Storehouse

One comment

If you are in Ireland and you like beer at all a must visit place is the Guinness Storehouse at St. James’s Gate. When you visit, visit with an abundance of time. We were on a bit of a schedule as it was our last full day in Ireland an we had visited Trinity College earlier in the day and had covid tests scheduled that evening so we could get home. Due to this schedule we did not get to spend as much time at the Storehouse as we would have liked to.

That being said, we did have a fantastic time. Based on advice from my parents, who had gone to Ireland a few years earlier, we did the Connoisseur Experience. With the Connoisseur Experience you get the self-guided tour, the Gravity Bar, you get to learn how to pour a pint of Guinness, but you also get a semi-private tasting of some of the experimental brews and some of the beers that are only sold in Ireland. We were so tired of Guinness by the time we left. If you walked to the Storehouse don’t worry, there is a line of everything from taxis to horse drawn carriages waiting out front to take weary visitors back to their hotels.

One of the fun facts about the brewery at St. James’s Gate is that the current lease agreement goes back 1759 and is good for 9,000 years. Yes, 9,000. It also only costs them 45 pounds a month. Guinness founder Arthur Guinness had big plans for his new dark brew.

We had a great time drinking Guinness at St. James’s Gate. I don’t know if I would do it again unless I was introducing the beer to someone else. Have you been to the Guinness Storehouse? Do you like Guinness? Let me know in the comments. Remember to leave no trace and safe travels.
