The Guinness Storehouse in Dublin was the most visited tourist attraction in Ireland of 2019.
The iconic site welcomed more than 1.7 million guests throughout the year, serving a delicious 1.1 million perfectly expertly pints of the black stuff.
Guinness is one of Ireland’s most famous exports. The iconic image of the perfectly settled pint is one synonymous with the country.
The Guinness Storehouse is a great visitor experience as guests are given a tour of the factory and showed how the drink is made.
The visit is always concluded with a visit to the Storehouse bar upstairs where they can enjoy and take in the views of the city.
Many choose to stop for some food and the Storehouse revealed that in 2019 they served a massive 48,000 portions of Beef and Guinness Stew.
The Storehouse restaurants also served 50,000 oysters to their diners throughout the years – a common choice from the menu to compliment a pint of Guinness.
Delighted Guinness Storehouse Managing Director Paul Carty described 2019 as “another incredibly successful year for the Guinness Storehouse”.
He added: “We kicked off the year by celebrating a momentous milestone in our history by welcoming our 20 millionth visitor in April; introduced Guinness Storehouse Seafest, a three-month festival devoted to Ireland’s world-famous seafood and its synonymous relationship with Guinness; celebrated International Stout Festival, St. Patrick’s Day and much much more.”
There is also plenty more to come this year as the innovative team at the Guinness Storehouse plan to launch a new ‘premium tour’ of the factory, and also give visitors an even closer look at the history of the country’s favourite drink.
