5 Tips For Touring The Guinness Storehouse in Dublin, Ireland

Beer tasting like you've never experienced before.

Emily Washbourn

If you visit Ireland, specifically Dublin, there is one thing everyone does: The Guinness Storehouse tour. It is touristy but definitely something that is worth it. As someone who doesn't love beer, and definitely doesn't love Guinness, I was concerned about going or even liking the tour but it was beyond interesting. I absolutely loved the experience and would recommend it to anyone in Dublin. Here are some tips to having the best possible experience at The Guinness Storehouse!

1. Go early

Even though it doesn't exactly sound super appealing to drink a Guinness first thing in the morning, you'll be happy to walk through the exhibit without a million people around you at all times. This also means less of a waiting time at some of the top attractions within the storehouse.

2. Do the taste testing experience

If you see a line forming outside a neon lit doorway, get in line! This is the Guinness tasting experience, which looks like an event you have to pay for but is actually free! You learn how to fully taste Guinness with a tiny little taster and get to walk into a couple cool rooms.

3. Pour your own perfect pint

Another thing that is free but could seem like a paid event is the pour your own perfect pint experience! You get to learn from the Guinness experts and take a chance at pouring your own glass. At the end, you get a certificate to show your friends and hang on the fridge stating that you are now a Guinness pouring expert!

4. Spend some time on the advertising floor

This fully immersive advertising experience is one of a kind. You are surrounded by a giant, wrap around screen and get to watch some of Guinness' most famous commercials.

5. Enjoy the Gravity Bar

On the top floor of the Guinness Storehouse, you will find the Gravity Bar. Sit, stand and enjoy a panoramic view of Dublin while drinking your pint of Guinness that you poured yourself.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
