Dublin : Guinness Storehouse

No trip to Dublin is complete without a stop at Guinness Storehouse. I doesn’t matter if you like Guinness or not, the complex itself is interesting and the well-constructed exhibits explaining every last detail of the Guinness making method are fascinating. The views atop the complex are noteworthy and for those who do drink Guinness, a complimentary pint awaits as long as you don’t lose your ticket. Food Courts here are fair to good and the obvious recommendation is to try the Beef & Guinness stew. A pint of Guinness to pair is obligatory.

Advice on transport, walk the Liffey to Watling St. then head south to Thomas St., then west until you see the Storehouse signs, which will be to the south. I did not follow my own advice and arrived in the Portobello neighbourhood, way off course. In Dublin terms this is a ‘bad area’ but honestly I did not find it any worse than Hell’s Kitchen. In case you’re looking for falafel, Portobello has density of mid-east shoppes and I did get to use my Arabic to get directions out. Its always fun to surprise a Sryian guy with my knowledge of Arabic, however limited.
