Opened in 1904, the Storehouse was an operational plant for fermenting and storing Guinness. Today it houses a very fine exhibition dedicated to the Guinness story. Visitors will discover what goes into the making a pint of Guinness - the ingredients, the brewing process, the time, the craft and the passion. The exhibition shows how the brew has been marketed and how it is today sold in over 150 countries. Once the tour has finished, the guest is invited to the Gravity Bar to enjoy their pint of Guinness. Regular demonstrations on the art of pulling a pint of Guinness also take place in the Storehouse. Launched on the fifth floor in 2011, "Five" at Guinness Storehouse, includes a small replica authentic Irish Bar, an 18th Century inspired Brewers Dining Hall, and a restaurant named Gilroy's where guests enjoy a Guinness gastronomical experience driven entirely by the Irish tradition of wholesome local produce. Menus include local foods such as Ardsallagh goat's cheese, Irish mussels from Carlingford and the Waterford Blaas bread supplied by MD Bakery in Waterford. This area will host from time to time live cooking demonstrations using Guinness in the recipe and it includes an interactive recipe sharing bank that allows visitors to take Guinness recipe cards home.

Duration3 Hours
Day 3

Full-Day Boyne Valley Tour from Dublin

With your private driver-guide leading the way, today you'll head east to visit a few historical and sacred sites in Ireland. Declared a World Heritage Site in 1993, Bru Na Boinne is host to a remarkably fascinating, if somewhat mysterious, history. Found approximately 40 kilometers north of Dublin and on a slight river peninsula and bordering the meandering Boyne River, Bru Na Boinne is host to a cluster of prehistoric monuments. Ranging from the mid-30th century BCE to the 3rd century BCE, some of the sites predate the Egyptian pyramids, while others serve as magnificent examples of standing stones, burial mounds, and seemingly significant sites that align with astrological cycles. A site often overlooked on trips to Ireland, it surely one of the most incredible places to visit on the Emerald Isle. Later in the day, and after a break for lunch (not included) you'll travel to Trim Castle, which is likely the best-preserved and most impressive example of Anglo-Norman castle architecture in Ireland. It offers a spectacular insight into the lives and traditions of the people from the middle ages and leads well into your last stop of the day, The Hill of Tara. Best known for having been the royal residence of the ancient High Kings that ruled Ireland in Celtic times and beyond, it is said that a quarter of Ireland's landscape can be seen from this hill. You'll have the time to take in this spectacular vista before heading back to your hotel in Dublin.
