The Archives

The Guinness Archive preserves the historical records of the Guinness Brewery at St. James's Gate in Dublin from 1759 to the present.

Part of our collection includes the surviving personnel records of past employees dating from the 1880s to the late 1990s/early 2000s. We hold over 20,000 individual personnel files, accounting for approximately 80% of all employees from this period.
