The tour in May with guide Brian(?) was highly recommended. Easygoing and very well commented. You should get an idea of the Guinness Storehouse in advance to know that this is a media-led tour, not a typical brewery tour. We recommend!

Very thorough and informative tours. Our tour guide gave us a great walking tour between the 2 locations. Either tour is great on its own, be ready for a long adventure packing in both on the same day. Totally worth it!

What’s not to love about Guinness & Jameson? BUT our guide Brian was SUPER good! Told alot of information you need to know and can’t find online or in the guidebooks! If you only book one tour, it should be this one!!

Neil was a fantastic guide. We had a lot of fun and the tour was more fun than if we went to each place on our own. We honestly learned more about Guinness from Neil than at the Storehouse!

Wonderful experience! Fun, informative and relaxing!
