What events are in the Guinness Storehouse for St Patrick’s Day Festival?

While the world turns green for St Patrick’s Day, the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin rolls out the emerald carpet with a vibrant celebration of Irish culture and history across seven storeys.

Here are the things you won’t want to miss on your trip to Ireland’s No. 1 visitor attraction.

The History of Guinness

Guinness. Ireland. The two have a connection that dates back centuries and a history that closely intertwines with one another.

Learn how the Guinness family helped Dublin become the modern, thriving city it is today. Experience everything that went into the storied brand, from the unique way it brews Guinness draught to how the factory grew into the landmark it is today.

Plus, take a picture with the famous quote we can all agree with: Everyone’s Irish on March 17th.

Irish Dance

Take in the click tap crack of the form of dance that’s older than Guinness itself. You won’t want to miss the thrill of live Irish dance happening right in front of you. It’s an important part of Irish history – and not to mention fun to watch.

Irish Music

If you’re interested in authentically Irish St Patrick’s Day events, look no further than traditional Irish music sessions.

Known locally as trad, you’ll be able to watch and listen to some of the country’s best musicians play the original sounds of Irish music. Keep an ear out for the brass band, an eye out for the Guinness Harp and don’t be afraid to let your foot tap away to the rhythm and beat.

Experience the Guinness Storehouse

There are a handful of tours and experiences always running at the Guinness Storehouse – and what better time to take them than for St Patrick’s Day Festival?

  • Guinness Academy: Learn how to pour Guinness and get a certificate for it.
  • Tasting Experience: Take in the distinct aromas of Guinness ingredients.
  • Guinness Brewery Tour: Get to see the entire Guinness Storehouse grounds and have a guided beer and food tasting.
  • STOUTie: Have your picture etched into your pint – cheers to yourself!

Dine like the locals

Don’t forget to get your fill of traditional Irish food before you leave.

1837 Bar & Brasserie – named after the year the iconic pairing of Guinness and oysters was first made – has an array of meals that ring in the spirit of St Patrick’s Day Festival. Join the other 50,000 visitors who enjoy the beef and Guinness stew each year or opt for something you might find at a Sunday roast.

The Brewers' Dining Hall has a range of locals’ favourites home-cooked meals, like cottage pie or baked Irish ham. If you really want to send your tastebuds on an adventure, dip into the Guinness-infused foods, like the burger.

The Gravity Bar

Get a view of Dublin from one of the best vantage points possible: the Gravity Bar. Newly built, visitors can see the city in all its glory with panoramic glass encasing the entire seventh storey.

Spot all the most well-known St Patrick’s Day landmarks, like the St Patrick’s Cathedral.

Bring Guinness home

By the end of your time at the Guinness Storehouse, you’ll have made some lifelong memories. But, in case you want to be sure you won’t forget them, stop by the Guinness Storehouse shop to get engraved glasses, clothing, food and all of the other Guinness branded items available. We’ll even ship them to you!
