Are you getting out your favorite green shirt? Looking for your mother’s famous corn beef and cabbage recipe? How about adding a tour of the Guinness Brewery in Ireland to your St. Patrick’s Day Celebration plans?
The St. James’s Gate Brewery, the home of Guinness is the number one tourist attraction in Ireland. Open nearly every day from 7:00am to 5:00pm, The Guinness Storehouse offers a fantastic tour of its operations that starts with seeing the world’s largest pint glass which rises up the full height of the 7 story building. Encased in the bottom of this glass is the 9000 year lease. Yes you read that right, a Nine Thousand year lease, signed by company founder, Arthur Guinness on the last day of 1759.
While you cannot tour the actual brewing area, this self-guided tour includes a visit to the fourth floor of the facility that gives you the opportunity to learn how to pour the perfect pint from Guinness employees. After that you can head up to the Gravity Bar to enjoy your perfect pint as well as enjoy the incredible 360 degree view of Dublin and beyond.
So what are you waiting for? Let Ingenious Travel help you get your green on for St. Patrick’s Day by booking your tour to the Guinness Storehouse today!

There’s a little Irish in all of us!
Oh, I love St Patrick’s Day! My Mom cooks a great corned beef and cabbage with carrots and onions. Hope we have it at home this year!
I’ve always wanted to go to Dublin and especially St. James’ Gate! I’ve been to Belfast and Northern Ireland, but not yet to the south. I won’t be able to make it there this St. Patrick’s Day, but I’ll be lifting a Guinness. Love their advertising, too!
Love how you call St Patty’s Day the friendiest day of the year. Am more of a corned beef on rype person, but truly appreciate the tradition behind the holiday!
