Whilst we'd love to welcome you through our famous gates, we cannot offer brewery tours due to health, safety and security reasons. That's why we've brought the entire Guinness® brewery experience to life at the Guinness Storehouse.
The Guinness Storehouse experience is a self-guided tour. We recommend allowing at least 1.5 hours to explore, but you can stay for as long as you like. We've never been ones for rushing.
You do not have to book in advance, but we recommend it. Booking online before your visit entitles you to a 10% discount on adult admission as well as the opportunity to skip the queue on arrival. However, all guided tours do need to be booked in advance.
You will be sent a con?rmation email with a unique reference number. All you need to do is bring this booking reference number with you and present it at the information desk on arrival to gain entry.
We look forward to welcoming you at the Brewers' Dining Hall, 1837 Bar & Brasserie and Arthur's Bar, but we ask that you ?rst purchase a ticket so you can enjoy the Guinness Storehouse experience in its entirety.
Yes. We have lifts throughout the building to facilitate access for wheelchair users.

We're nothing if not precise; a perfect Guinness should be served at 6-7 degrees centigrade.
There are approximately 198 (intensely satisfying) calories in each pint of the Black Stuff.
Porter was invented in London in the early 18th century and quickly established itself as a popular drink among England's working class. Stout was originally a term used to describe a stronger type of porter. Ever the pioneer, Arthur Guinness began brewing this new drink in the 1770s and was the ?rst Dublin brewer to cease brewing ale altogether in favour of porter.
There's no point messing with perfection, which is why the recipes for Guinness Draught and Guinness Foreign Extra Stout are very similar in all aspects. Guinness Draught is dispensed using a mixture of nitrogen and carbon dioxide to produce the famous tight creamy head, while Guinness Foreign Extra Stout has more carbonation.
Basically, yes. Modern brewing methods help us to preserve the Guinness legacy, enabling our Brewers to create products of the highest quality - beer that Arthur would be proud to put his name to.
Yes. Our world-famous stout travels straight from the source to reach your shores.
The 9,000 year lease signed in 1759 was for a four-acre brewery site. Today, the brewery has expanded to cover over 50 acres. The 1759 lease is no longer valid as the company purchased the lands outright many years ago. So don't worry, we're not planning on going anywhere.
The harp is an ancient Irish symbol. It was ?rst used to represent Guinness stout in 1862 when the ?rst buff oval bottle label was introduced and is now recognised the world over as a sign of unparalleled Guinness quality.

Yes, it is from the keg format for now. Our new filtration process has removed the use of isinglass as a means of filtration and vegans can now enjoy a pint of Guinness.
All Guinness Draught in keg format is brewed without using isinglass. Full distribution of bottle and can formats will be in place by the end of 2017, so until then, our advice to vegans is to consume the product from the keg format only for now.
We are working on those. The other Guinness variants will be suitable for vegans at the end of 2017.
No. Isinglass was purely used as a means of filtration. The recipe for Guinness has not changed.
Production and distribution has commenced on the bottle and can formats of Guinness Draught. It will take some time to reach the full scale distribution of these formats, but this is expected by the end of 2017.
