The staff will welcome you and serve you a complimentary pint of the black gold. It’s the perfect way to spend your time in port in Dublin.

On this skip-the-line shore excursion, you can explore the Storehouse without waiting in line!

The Storehouse, a former fermentation plant, has been remodeled into a visitor center dedicated to the history of Guinness. Ireland's number-one visitor attraction unfolds its tale across seven floors shaped around a giant pint glass which, if full, would contain 14.3 million pints of Guinness.

The highlight of your shore excursion to the Storehouse will surely be the Gravity Bar, symbolically the ‘head of the pint,’ where you can enjoy 360-degree views across Dublin while savoring a complimentary pint of Guinness.
