One thing we knew we wanted to splurge on while in Ireland was the Guinness Storehouse. We had been told by numerous people that the Guinness you get in Ireland is unlike Guinness elsewhere. The storehouse and original factory are located in Dublin and lucky for us in walking distance from our apartment. The storehouse is huge and we stayed over 4 hours.
We enjoyed the 7-story state of the art museum, the Guinness tasting lesson and the Guinness Academy where we learned to pour the perfect pint. We loved seeing the old ads and merchandise and seeing the beer making process.
We enjoyed lunch in one of the 3 restaurants and took in the panoramic views from the top bar. The store is huge with any merchandise you can imagine and more. We picked up a few things before heading home with a full belly and a big smile. We highly recommend going and really enjoyed our time there.
