The Guinness Storehouse has been one of Dublin’s top attractions since the brewery opened in 1759. Not only does it give you the chance to explore one of the oldest industries in Ireland, but also an opportunity to sip at the black stuff while you soak up history. When visiting the Storehouse, your journey will begin at the bottom of the world’s largest pint glass, which could contain an incredible 14 million pints of beer. From here, self-guided tours give you the opportunity to set the pace as you wander through seven floors of interactive experiences. While you wander through the halls, you’ll discover over 250 years of brand history, and discover the skill they pour into their brewing process.

Each floor has a different theme

On the first floor, you’ll discover how the beer has been travelling the world since 1769.( To this day, all the Guinness served in over 150 countries originates in Ireland, and takes epic journeys to reach its destination.) Moving on to the second floor, you’ll get a chance to savour a taste of the famed black stuff in a unique, sensory experience. On the third floor, you’ll get a chance to see the advertising that has made Guinness so famous throughout the years. Meanwhile, on the 4th floor, you can attend the Guinness Academy. The favourite stop of many visitors, here you can learn how to pull the perfect pint.

By the 5th floor, you’ll probably want a snack break; which is why the Brewer’s Dining Hall calls this its home. The menu is full of iconic Guinness dishes to enjoy before continuing your tour. Finally, the 7th floor provides the perfect location to savour your pint. The Gravity Bar provides a 360 degree view of Dublin, high above the rooftops. Hold on to your tickets for this stop, as they entitle you to a free pint.

The Guinness Storehouse is open 7 days a week

Discover their brewing process from 9:30am - 7pm. The last admission is at 5pm, though during July and August the opening hours vary. The Storehouse opens at 9am, and closes at 8pm, with the last admission accordingly at 6pm.

Book a ticket in advance

Trinity College Library dates back to 1592, and is the largest library in Ireland. Located in the college campus in Dublin city centre, the library houses an incredibly 5 million printed volumes. To this day, it’s a famed research centre, and still proudly embraces its historical roots. Visitors to the library will have the opportunity to step back in time, and visit the 18th century library structure, literary displays, and the famed Book of Kells.

Wander through the Old Library

Walking through the cobbled stones of the college brings visitors back to the 18th century, the era when the Old Library building was constructed. To this day, it still houses over 200,000 books, in sturdy oak shelves. Exhibitions are also regularly held in this space, with the renowned Book of Kells permanently on display. Other special collections worth visiting include the Ussher Collection, which the college acquired in the 17th century, and the Fagel Collection, passed to the college in the 19th century.

Visitors to the Old Library will enter through the Library Shop, before proceeding to the Book of Kells exhibition, and then continuing onward to view the ancient literature on display in the Treasury. You’ll then finish up in the Long Room, which houses the majority of the classic texts in the college.

Visit the Book of Kells Exhibition

The Book of Kells is an acclaimed piece of Irish history. Written around 800, the book contains four beautifully illustrated gospels. The intricate designs within the pages have garnered international attention, and can be seen in the library’s exhibition. It’s been housed in the Trinity College Library since the 17th century, and has been displayed to the public for nearly as long, making it one of Europe’s longest standing exhibitions.

In the 20th century, the book was carefully split into four volumes, so that visitors could enjoy views of the illustrations and text during the same visit. The pages contain abstract decorations, and carefully coloured sketches of plant, animal and humans throughout. The text itself is also beautifully executed, though little attention was paid to spelling, grammar, or cohesiveness. This led to the belief the book was designed solely for ceremonial usage.
