      Its like paying to watch ads for a couple of hours. Some people like that. Guinness closed down the brewery in kilkenny where up until recently you could actually do a brewery tour and see how beer is made. the storehouse has no real connection with the brewery in which it is located.

      I actually visited with my two daughters in June when we were in Dublin. Its actually quite an interesting place to visit, but its vastly overpriced. The admission fee is 20 euro which is nuts, 5 euro would be a reasonable fee.

    I saw a large ad in dublin airport yesterday, ‘Guinness Storehouse, Europe’s leading tourist attraction ‘

    Really? The gravity bar is decent but the rest is lame.

    It is a damning indictment of this nation that the most popular tourist attraction is a brewery. A national embarrassment.

        I’m adequately embarrassed by the Heineken Brewery also. And, I am still embarrassed about that foreign owned brewery being the top tourist attraction in this state, regardless.

          Why are you embarrassed about what tourists do when they visit Dublin? Are you embarrassed for them or yourself? I don’t understand

      Pretty sure Trinity college is Ireland’s top attraction by visitor numbers but as it is not a paid attraction they don’t count it.

      1. On The Buses

        They do count attendance in non fee paying attractions, and the top non fee paying attraction is the national museum of Ireland and the attendance there is roughly 50% of the storehouse annually.

      Des Bishop’s doc on the Irish relationship with alcohol ass culture identity is rather on the money

        Des has been living here since Charlie Haughey was Taoiseach, you’d think he’d be over his constant amazement at all things Irish by now.
