Everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day! Even Guinness agrees. In honor of the biggest of days, we’re taking a tour of St. James Gate Brewery in Dublin, Ireland.
Here’s to wishing you a day filled with all things green, boxty pancakes, corned beef and cabbage, and a pint of green beer! Happy St. Paddy’s Day! and Sláinte!
What: St. James Gate Brewery, the Home of Guinness
Where: Dublin, Ireland
How Long to Stay: Two to four hours, or longer depending on how many beers your order
What Else to Know:
- Tickets are under 20 EUR and can be purchased online or at the Brewery, bring your student ID if you have one
- Be sure to check out the storehouse to pick up a t-shirt or other souvenirs
- The Gravity Bar at the top of the brewery has spectacular views of Dublin and it features some pristinely kept floor-to-ceiling windows. It’s worth spending some serious time here to take in the views… and of course… the beer!
- Sláinte is cheers in Irish. It’s pronounced Slahn-sha. Tuck that one in your back pocket for when you celebrate with a Guinness at The Gravity Bar.
