Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with 3000 Minutes of Music at the Guinness Storehouse

This year, the home of Guinness is marking St. Patrick’s Day with a vibrant celebration of Irish creativity, culture, and camaraderie. From 14th – 18th March, the Guinness Storehouse will host an elevated experience treating visitors to Irish music, dance, artwork, food and more. Honouring the time-old tradition of revelry and spectacle that encapsulates the St. Patrick’s Festival, over 100 artists have contributed to a programme that’s sure to make St. Patrick’s Day 2024 truly unforgettable!   


A dynamic line up of entertainment awaits visitors this St. Patrick’s Day at the World’s Leading Visitor Attraction. For five days over St. Patrick’s Day, the Guinness Storehouse is celebrating in true style, paying tribute to the very best of Irish culture. Fusing traditional spirit with modern flair, prepare yourself for an experience like no other.


Every year, the home of Guinness raises the bar for the level and quality of entertainment on display and 2024 is no exception. A range of modern Irish musicians will take centre-stage over the five day period, with one act headlining each day. The showcase of music has something for everyone with beloved pioneers of Ireland’s trad/folk scene, The Bonnymen, one of the headlining acts. They’ll be in good company with other headlining acts including Kila – offering an exciting blend of traditional music and modern rock – punk-folk group Ispíní na hÉireann, Dublin’s The Len Collective and the unique fusion of traditional music and contemporary beats from Jiggy.

As you enjoy a mesmerising musical performance, you’ll have the opportunity to feast your eyes on modern reinterpretations of Guinness’ legendary advertisements. Paying homage to the past and looking forward to the future, inside The Gilroy you’ll find an abundance of captivating artwork inspired by famous chapters from Guinness’ advertising legacy. Led by Dublin artist, Cyan Ryan, a collective of talented local street artists have transformed the visitor space into a spectacle bringing John Gilroy’s whimsical characters back to life. What’s more, one of Gilroy’s never-before-seen sketches will be displayed in larger-than-life dimensions over the Dublin skyline for a true touch of St. Patrick’s Day pageantry!


Of course, there will be traditional Irish delights on the menu over the five-day festivities too. An entire floor of the seven-storey experience in the Guinness Storehouse will be dedicated to celebrating Irish cuisine. So, after sampling the entertainment be sure to stop by and enjoy some of the freshest produce from across the island featured in a range of delicious dishes.


As an AsIAm accredited attraction, the Guinness Storehouse will also hold a special reduced sensory experience where visitors with sensory sensitivities can enjoy the elevated experience. This will feature low-sensory entertainment, noise and light reductions and lower capacities within the building – ensuring the St. Patrick’s Day festivities can be enjoyed by everyone.
