Although I'm from Dublin, I had never visited the Guinness storehouse and it seems like a rite of passage of sorts so myself and my partner booked tickets and went along on a Saturday afternoon. It was definitely worth the visit! It's self-guided, and although I personally would have preferred a guided tour as I think the knowledge and personality of a tour guide can really add to the experience, we really enjoyed it and there was a great atmosphere throughout the whole tour. I think it could be sign-posted a little clearer throughout the tour itself as there is a selection of free things to do along the way with your ticket, from drinks to activities, but you can only use your ticket once, so once you use it on one thing, you have to pay if you want to avail of any of the other options. I thought this wasn't made very clear for guests and we ended up queuing for about 20 mins for one of the more popular activities, only to find when we reached the top that we would have to pay. It may not be an issue for some people but I thought it was worth mentioning. Other than that one issue, I think the storehouse is definitely worth a visit and is great way to spend an afternoon in Dublin.
