Guinness Storehouse

The most spectacular pint of Guinness in Dublin - indeed, in all Ireland - awaits you in Gravity, the modern glass-walled bar providing panoramic views of the city from its unique position atop the impressive Guinness Storehouse, a handsome 1904 building.


The Storehouse is commodious, to put it mildly - with 170,000 square feet of floor space, it is one of the choicest pieces of real estate in Dublin. The space is imaginatively used to house the Guinness Museum, the story - told with fascinating high tech exhibits - of the famous company's 250-plus years in business.


Opened in the autumn of 2000, the Guinness Storehouse has long since welcomed its millionth visitor: it has so much to offer that some folk spend an entire day there.


The Storehouse offers a choice of bars and restaurants and you may get better value for the entry fee by extending your visit to include a bite to eat.


Depending on your mood and the time available you can choose between: 


Gilroy’s bistro, named after John Gilroy, designer of the famous 'My Goodness, My Guinness' ads, which decorate the room. Open for lunch (12-3; daily Jun-Sep, Thu-Sat Oct-May) it offers a full menu and waiter service.


Brewers' Dining Hall offers refectory style meals (12-4 daily all year); shared tables and a more informal menu.


Barge Café offers home baking, sandwiches, snacks (10-6 daily all year); Arthur's Bar offers a pubby atmosphere and bar menu (12-7 daily Jul-Aug, to 6pm Sep-Jun).


Although menus vary, everything is made freshly on the premises and there's an emphasis on local foods and traditions, with Guinness used as an ingredient in many of the dishes - and classic beef & Guinness featuring on most menus.
