After days of arriving here at Dublin, I finally decided to get out of this apartment to visit some interesting place. I decided to look up in the internet and the only place that I found interesting was “The Guinness Storehouse”. So, I decided to go ahead and check it out.
The Guinness Storehouse is at St James Gate in Dublin. It is a over 7 floors high that is shapped in the famous Guinness pint itself with each floor having something different. The ground floor has some retail store that even provides personalized bottle of Guinness and archives that preserves the heritage of over 250 years of Guinness history. The first floor gives you the idea on the whole brewing process. Second floor has the all the advertising stuffs that made its so famous the world over. The third floor..?? I don’t remember what was there. On the fourth however, you get to actually learn to pour the perfect pint. Did you know there are like 6 steps to perfect pint of Guinness. The fifth floor had some restaurant and the sixth floor that eventually leads you to the Seventh and the “best floor”. I”ll tell you why I termed it the “best floor”. Firstly, this is where you get a one free pint of Guinness. Now for me that is reason enough but for those who hates the taste of it or any beer at all, you get the 360 degree view of Dublin from here. From Phoenix park, which is one of the largest designed landscapes in European city, to the Spire and from the Liberty Hall to the Wicklow Mountains.
If you are coming to Dublin, you should definitely visit this place to witness the incredible architectural design if not for the curiosity on how Guinness is brewed and why it is popular the world around.
