Ready to step inside the iconic Guinness building to see the winter wonderland for yourself?

Get your advent calendar in the ready position and stack your festive playlist with bangers because the countdown to Christmas has officially begun.

We’re gearing up for weeks of merriment, good vibes and general busyness as we frantically tick items off our to-do list to get us prepped for the festive season. However, in the midst of planning, shopping and errand-running, it’s also vital to set some time aside to unwind.

Indeed, whether you’re overdue a catchup with friends or you just want to enjoy a pint meters away from where it’s brewed at Europe’s Leading Tourist Attraction 2023, the Guinness Storehouse is ready to welcome you this season. The best thing about visiting the Guinness Storehouse during winter? It’s fully decked out for Christmas, so you can enjoy the festive vibes as you learn all about the fascinating Guinness story.

Christmas at the Guinness Storehouse runs from from 22 November until 6 January, and early booking is advised to avoid disappointment.

Ready to step inside St. James’s Gate and see this winter wonderland for yourself? Here’s what you can expect on your next visit.

An unparalleled view of the city

As you sample some great beer in the Gravity Bar, you’ll get the opportunity to take in panoramic views of Dublin. At this time of year you can often catch an extra special sunset!

Festive bites

The Guinness Storehouse invites guests to indulge in some delicious nibbles on their exclusive Christmas menu, which features a spiced beef dish, Mulled Guinness and Guinness smoked salmon, in addition to fresh Irish cheeses.

A Christmas tree unlike any other

Step into the Guinness Storehouse this Christmas and prepare to be greeted by an 8.5 metre Christmas tree. In addition to this magnificent tree, there will also be plenty of Instagrammable moments throughout the building – including a giant bauble display and new artwork from Farouk Alao, Sorcha O’Higgins and Ger Clancy, so make sure you have your camera at the ready. Also, keep an ear out for an original piece of music from Kodaline throughout the experience.

Moments of magic throughout the tour

You can, of course, still expect the same high quality tour of the Guinness Storehouse that’s on offer all year long, but with Christmas in the air, there will also be plenty of surprises and magic sprinkled throughout the experience, from moments of connection, pop-up musical performances, classic Irish craic and cultural highlights.
