Fans of Guinness should make sure they find space in their itinerary for a tour of the Guinness Storehouse in the St James’ Gate Brewery. This impressive building has been the home of Ireland’s favourite tipple since 1759 and visitors can now embark on a tour of the seven floors to learn the history of the beverage and the man behind it all, Arthur Guinness. At the end, you can enjoy a complimentary pint of Guinness in the Gravity Bar, which benefits from 360 degree views of the Irish capital. If you’re curious to discover more about the Guinness family, much of their heritage and history can be discovered through other landmarks. Farmleigh House was bought by the great grandson of Arthur Guinness in the 18th century and can now be viewed by the public for free. The highlight is the library’s collection of rare books dating back to the 18th century, which was donated by the Guinness family to the public library of Ireland for everyone to enjoy. For evening entertainment, why not enjoy some food and drink at The Church, the very same place of worship where Arthur Guinness was married in 1761. Of course, it’s no longer a working church now, but retains many of its original features including crypts in the basement.

In the evening, why not board the Hellfire Express as part of Hidden Dublin Walks, and visit some of the city’s most haunted places whilst listening to ghoulish stories and strange goings on. You’ll even enjoy an evening mountain walk with spectacular views of the city whilst the guides give you some history about this spooky mountain range.
