Guinness Storehouse Tour Dublin
Are you thinking about doing the Guinness Tour in Dublin but you not the biggest fan of beer let alone Guinness and you are wondering if it’s even worth your time, let alone money? Well luckily for you guys; I have a whole article here for you to read, so you can weigh up the options the for and against visiting the Guinness Storehouse.
Is there more than Beer in the Storehouse?
A place that crafts one of the most recognizable beer brands in the world, it’s going to be mostly about the crafting of beer. But saying this there are reasons to visit, even if you don’t personally enjoy beer.
Personally, I wouldn’t plan to visit the Guinness Storehouse if I had no passion for the beer and was traveling alone. But if you are the one in the group that doesn’t like beer don’t worry there is stuff you too!
History of Dublin
Some might just see the Guinness storehouse as a place they craft and design beer, but others see it as the biggest reason Dublin is what it is today!
Arthur Guinness signed a lease, 9000-year lease to change the history of Ireland. He had a large vision for Guinness and doing so had a big vision for Dublin. Since the lease was signed the Guinness family have supported the expansion of Dublin and in turn shaped the history of Dublin.
Pulling a pint
Ok, this is beer related but learning how to pull the perfect pint is a pretty cool skill to have. If you have never pulled a pint before (or even an expert) you get to stand behind a training bar and learn the perfect pour technique.
- Pick a clean glass
- Hold at 45′
- pour 3/4 full
- Allow Beer to settle
- Pour the final 1/4 giving you the perfect head
- Doing this all in 119.5 seconds
Great for people interested in business
If you are a key business mind you will enjoy the information on Arthur Guinness, He was a true visionary and wasn’t scared to make waves to create what he wanted. He didn’t just create a beer he made a legacy.
There is information about how advertising improved the Guinness image and how it continually grows around the world!
The Guinness Storehouse is the best place to see the sights of Dublin. You can have a drink while looking out at the whole of Dublin. There is information on the windows to even tell you what you are looking at.
I could have sat there for hours, but I was already nursing a hangover and it was only 11 in the morning.
Gift shop, Cafe and Restaurant
You might not like beer but you might know someone who does! There are lots of other items in the gift shops like wallets, rugby shirts, t-shirts, Keyrings, Glasses and lots more.
The Cafe and restaurant have a range of different foods and drinks to try. Like Guinness mocha and nitro coffee. Their range of Guinness Items is surprisingly large.
Try a beer at the source it might change your mind
Going to the source might just change your mind, Personally not a massive fan of Guinness but the experience of the tasting room and the fact you pull your own drink, it would be rude not to try a beer or two!
How many people can say they have had a Guinness in the home of Guinness?
