When you think of Ireland, you’re sure to think of Guinness and Dublin is where this famous beer originated, thanks to Arthur Guinness. St James’ Gate Brewery has been the home of Guinness since 1759 and it’s here you’ll find the Guinness Storehouse, modeled in the shape of a pint of the black stuff, it stands seven stories high and offers visitors a comprehensive guide into Guinness making, and the history of the man behind it. At the end of the tour, you can enjoy a complimentary pint of Guinness whilst admiring the 360 degree view across the Irish capital. A great day out for couples, or groups of friends.
The Church, as the name would suggest, was once a place of worship in the 17th century, and where Arthur Guinness himself married. It has now been converted into a much loved café, bar, restaurant and nightclub with live Irish music and a beer garden. This unique venue is steeped in history: the organ was once played by Handel whilst the stained glass windows add to the stunning atmosphere and the crypt in the basement adds an eerie element to your visit.
For thrill seekers, Hidden Dublin Walks offers a unique way to experience the capital. You’ll board the Hellfire Express as you’re scared silly listening to ghoulish tales about some of the city’s most famous landmarks, including St Patrick’s Cathedral, Kilakee House and Rathfarnham Castle. If you’re still craving more, the National Leprechaun Museum dedicates itself to Irish myth and folklore. Listen to enchanting stories and fairytales and see what it would be like to be as small as a leprechaun with interactive displays and exhibits; a magical day out for children and adults alike!
