It takes 119.5 seconds to pour a pint of Guinness and this Saturday will mark 119.5 days since Ireland’s leading visitor attraction last poured a pint and the gates were closed. To mark the reopening of the Guinness Storehouse, Diageo will host a series of consumer experiences this summer around Irish creativity, food and brewing.
This July and August the Guinness Storehouse will become the exclusive exhibition space for Creatives Against Covid-19. The ‘Soon is Now’ exhibition features artwork from creatives around the world, who reframed the pandemic into a showing of hope by exploring ideas of togetherness, solidarity and resilience under the theme of ‘Soon’.
Anyone who buys a Creatives Against Covid-19 print will received free admission to the Storehouse from now until the end of August this year. Creatives Against Covid-19 will send print purchasers an email with a code to book a free visit to the venue. One of the exhibits from the Covid-19 show by artist Fuchsia McAree is pictured above.
A €15 entry ticket allows visitors to explore the ingredients, history and culture of Guinness. A €25 ticket includes a 90-minute session with a beer specialist, tasting all traditional Guinness brews and some experimental beers. The Storehouse experience includes a visit to the newly revamped Gravity Bar, which sits 46 meters high above the city.
Dublin foodies will soon have a new restaurant to add to their hit list as the Storehouse is, for the first time, opening its restaurant to the public, without having to buy an experience ticket. The Storehouse has linked up with Fire & Smoke on dishes paired with Guinness stout, along with craft beers like Citra IPA and Guinness Foreign Extra Stout.
The Storehouse is offering free admission to Ireland’s frontline workers. From healthcare, public transport and the postal services, to supermarkets, haulage and utilities, to the end of this year. To claim your free ticket visit https://www.guinness-storehouse.com/en/frontline
