One of the country’s most popular attractions is back in business from this Saturday, July 11th.
The Guinness Storehouse is opening its doors for the first time since March and has a host of special things planned for visitors. It takes 119.5 seconds to pour a pint Guinness and, incredibly, this Saturday will mark 119.5 days the last pint was poured at the Storehouse before the COVID19 lockdown.
Much has gone on behind the scenes in the intervening months and to celebrate the reopening, there are a number of Welcome Back experiences which team brewing and food with Irish creativity.
The Guinness Storehouse restaurant will be open to the public for the first time (without having to buy a ticket for the Storehouse experience). To mark the occasion there is a collaboration with Fire & Smoke on a range of dishes paired with Guinness Draught, Citra IPA, Guinness Foreign Extra Stout and more.
The famous Gravity Bar, with its views of Dublin, has had a revamp and is now home to a new art installation from Dublin-based street artist ACHES. That’s not the only art to be seen though - during July and August the Storehouse will be home to artwork from the hugely popular Creatives Against Covid-19 print campaign which saw artists and creatives produce work around the idea of togetherness during the lockdown. Anyone who purchases a print will be offered complimentary admission to the Guinness Storehouse until 31st August.
Safety has been prioritised, with hand sanitisation points throughout the building and a reduced number of visitors are allowed at any one time. And in a lovely gesture, the Storehouse is offering free admission to frontline workers until the end of the year (there's more info here).
The Welcome Back tickets are €15 or there’s the Guinness Uncovered ticket for €25 which includes a 90-minute experience led by a beer specialist. To book or for more information go to guinness-storehouse.com
