AOL Travel Editor’s Review

Ireland loves its beer so it is no wonder this spot is one of the top Dublin things to do, whether you are a local or visiting on a Dublin vacation. Located in an atmospheric old grain storehouse, surrounded by cobbled streets at St James’s Gate, you’ll get the heady whiff of the beloved hops before you even pass the threshold of the impressive seven story shrine to all things Guinness.

Founded by Arthur Guinness in 1759, St James’s Gate exports to 150 countries where a whopping 10 million glasses of the world-famous velvety stout are consumed a day. Each floor, crammed with interactive displays, tells another chapter in the Guinness story, so you can brush up on the beer-making process, dig through the archives and company legers of the reputedly benevolent Guinness family or take a look at the history of the company’s advertising campaigns. And when you’re done, enjoy a complimentary glass of Guinness from the rooftop Gravity Bar with the best 360 panoramic views available in Dublin.
