Guinness Storehouse – WELCOME TO THE HOME OF GUINNESS
Ireland has always been known to be one of the favorite tourist destinations and attracts a number of globe trotters from across the world each year.
However it is not just the serene countryside and the blue skies that call out to tourists. It is the Guinness Storehouse that is one of the main tourist’s attractions in the capital city of Dublin.
What was once constructed as a fermentation plant for St. James’s Gate Brewery later came to be Ireland’s first steel framed multistory building made in a magnificent Chicago Architectural style.
What actually attracts people to this destination is the way this building speaks of the history behind making of one of the world’s most loved dark beer founded by Arthur Guinness.
7 Floors to 7th Heaven
At the base of the glass atrium visitors can get to see the 9000 year lease signed by Arthur Guinness. Each floor after, has a theme to it which makes the tour even more exciting. It is with help of some very interesting advertisements on responsible drinking, exhibitions that Ireland’s number one International Visitor Attraction unfolds its tale across seven floors shaped around a giant pint, which, if filled would contain 14.3 million pints of Guinness.
While the first floor of the storehouse gives you a glimpse of the four basic ingredients that go into making the perfect pint of Guinness, it is on the other floors that you can get a complete insight into the history of this world class beverage. You could even learn how to pour the perfect pint in the Guinness Academy or upgrade to enjoy samples of the four most popular variants, with an intimate tasting experience with the Connoisseur Experience.
