About this listing
IRELAND’S MOST EXCLUSIVE BEDROOM
Even locals don’t get this kind of access. Get ready for a stout-steeped, Toucan-themed experience during your overnight stay at this beer-lover’s pilgrimage site, the Guinness Storehouse in the heart of Dublin.
We’ll take you on VIP tours of the brewery and the Guinness Storehouse, before a Guinness-themed private dinner by our Executive Chef in the Gravity Bar. Its here you will stay for the night with a 360-degree panoramic view of Dublin.
The Guinness Storehouse is, well, let’s say, spacious. Before you rest for the night explore it with your own personal guide and discover how the world’s best-loved stout is made.
You’ll begin at Thomas Street, Arthur Guinness’s home residence. The magic and mystery will begin to unfold as you step through historic railway lines, across cobbled stones and through the underground tunnels. A level of access no public visitor ever gets!
Then, you’ll learn to pour the perfect pint and explore the wonderful world of Guinness advertising and the best views of Dublin city from our Gravity bar, which boasts a 360-degree panoramic view of the city below. By now you should be feeling at home.
Take a few hours to relax, before our expert Beer Specialist and Executive Chef pay you a visit to serve up 6-courses from our Guinness-inspired menu. Reflect on your day of tastings, trivia, and VIP access as you enjoy culinary delights accompanied by an incomparable 360-degree view of the city. Gaze upon the city with your favorite music playing in the background of your loft room that is fully outfitted with the best Sonos speaker to set the scene to a truly unforgettable evening.
Get ready for bed as you’ll sleep looking out to the stars over Dublin. You are now in Ireland’s most exclusive bedroom. The first person to call this home, without having Guinness in their name.
But it doesn’t end there… the next morning after breakfast, our Brewer Peter Simpson will teach you all about the basics of brewing, the various ingredients and what makes Guinness made of more.
When it comes to getting a taste of Dublin, it doesn’t get better than this.
Will you be our lucky winner?
As we say in Ireland, “Sláinte!”
