The Guinness Storehouse in Dublin is an old establishment dating back to 1759, the year the Arthur Guinnes brewery was founded. It stands on a land of over 25 hectares, and today houses a futuristic building/museum in the shape of a pint of Guinness! Visitors will be projected into a 7-storey path around a central glass structure. On the top floor is the sensational GRAVITY BAR, a venue with a sensational view over the whole city.
Guinness Storehouse is truly a sensational experience. In Dublin it is almost an institution, and is one of the most visited places in the whole city. For this reason, it would be preferable to buy the entrance ticket online, avoiding the queue.

By Tram, Red Line, the closest stop is St James’s Hospital.
Often in the street outside the building, scenes from films are shot, set in the past.
They block the alley and turn it into a market; they often filmed scenes with the Guinness Gate, and neighboring ones. A little bit of dirt and sand on the ground and here it is …. magically a movie set.
