The first word that I learned in Dublin was sláinte, pronounciated slauncha, which means cheers or good health. I find it also one of the easiest Irish words. If you love beer the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin is a must-see. But even if you don’t it is quite interesting and fun destination for a half a day or less.
The tickets cost from €6.50 for children to €16.50 for adults, there are discounts for students and families. Maybe you shouldn’t visit it hungover as it will probably take you about 3 to 4 hours to explore everything there. But if you have time, why not? It’s definitely fun.
The seven story building in which is located it’s quite interesting itself and it’ constructed like a pint. Ii is also the world’s largest pint. If filled the amount would equal about 14 million pints of Guinness. I say they fill it and give people really long straws to drink from the Gravity bar on the seventh floor of the building. Ha! It would be an experiment worth seeing.
On the first few floors you will learn all about the ingredients and crafting the beer, watch old Guinness’s commercials and even pour a pint yourself which you could drink in the panoramic Gravity bar on the last floor. The visual design of every floor and room is unique and very well executed. There are many fun and interactive things to do. You can play a harp (the logo of the beer in case you’re wondering) by just swiping your hand through a glass, take a beer test, watch numerous videos of every single crafting process. You can see now how does one spend half a day there.
After you pour your perfect Guinness pint you can go up to the last floor (you’ve made it!) and relax drinking your beer and enjoy the beautiful city in the panoramic Gravity bar.
