Opened in 1759, the Guinness Storehouse is one of the world’s most famous breweries, producing the distinctive dark stout that is known and loved the world over. You can explore the Guinness Hopstore, tour a converted 19th-century building housing the World of Guinness Exhibition, and view a film showing how the stout is made; then move on to the Gilroy Gallery, dedicated to the graphic design work of John Gilroy (whose work you will have seen if you’ve ever been in an Irish pub); and last but not least, stop in at the breathtaking Gravity Bar. Here you can sample a glass of the famous brew in the glass-enclosed bar 61 meters (200 feet) above the ground, complete with 360-degree views of the city. Ticket prices vary based on the time of day—early morning tickets are as low as £14. Check online for discounts.
