A visit to Dublin wouldn't be complete without stopping for a pint at the Guinness Storehouse. Though we're not fans of Guinness, we did gain an appreciation.
In 1759, Arthur Guinness signed a lease on the St. James's Gate Brewery. The lease was for 9000 years... which pretty much guarantees Guinness will be brewing in Dublin for a long time to come.
The Guinness Storehouse tour is housed in what used to be the fermentation plant from 1904-1988. 7 levels dedicated to telling visitors about the history and making of this popular beer. The interior is designed in the shape of a giant pint of Guinness... if it were filled, it would hold 14.3 million pints!
