Your tour begins as you board your motorcoach for a panoramic tour of Dublin City. You will see St. Stephen's Green and Merrion Square - one of Dublin's grandest Georgian Squares and now the address of the National Gallery of Ireland and the Irish Parliament before continuing on past the Old Parliament Building and Trinity College, founded in 1592 by Queen Elizabeth I.
You will then pass Dublin Castle, Christ Church Cathedral and St Patrick's Cathedral en route to the Guinness Storehouse at the St. James Gate Brewery, birthplace of the world's most famous creamy stout. The brewery first saw the light of day close to this spot over 250 years ago. Upon arriving, you will enter the Guinness Storehouse, an entertaining exhibition on the history of Guinness.
During your visit to the Storehouse, you will see, hear and smell the ingredients as they make their way through a series of vast machines and processes before becoming world-famous Guinness stout. You will view Guinness advertising and a showcase on how the product has been brought to market over the years with virtually every type of transportation. The self-guided tour of the Storehouse ends in the circular panoramic bar with its sweeping views across the city of Dublin. Here, you will enjoy a complimentary sample of the "black stuff" at its best, just a few hundred yards from where it's made. (You must be 18 years or older to sample Guinness.)
Before your return drive to the pier, you will have time to browse in the gift shop for Guinness-themed gifts and souvenirs.
