Ireland’s widely visited tourist attraction has partnered with Airbnb to offer one lucky guest and a friend the chance to be the first people to ever spend a night at the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin.
The Gravity Bar will be converted into a fashionable loft for the lucky pair to enjoy a VIP experience complete with a Guinness tasting bar with private butler, “perfect pint”-shaped bed, pool table, life-sized Jenga and giant telescope. How cool is that!
A ‘once in a lifetime’ experience for Guinness fans and beer aficionados, the winner will be welcomed by Domhnall Marnell, Guinness Storehouse Beer Specialist, before being handed the keys to the Guinness Storehouse.
They will experience life behind the gates with unique access into the heart of the fabulous St. James’s Gate Brewery, the production site that has been home to the Guinness Brewery since 1759, when its owner Arthur Guinness signed a lease for 9,000 years.
Starting at No.1 Thomas Street, family home to Arthur Guinness, Guinness Archivist Eibhlin Colgan will take the winner on a historical journey of the brewery along 19th Century railway tracks and through hidden tunnels, telling the rich story of the Guinness family heritage. The winners will enjoy a full Guinness Storehouse experience with private tour topped off with a six-course dining experience, designed with Irish ingredients and Guinness pairings by Guinness Storehouse Executive Chef Justin O’Connor and served in the surroundings of the Gravity Bar.
Following the ‘Night at’ the Guinness Storehouse, the winners will be treated to an Irish breakfast before meeting with Guinness Brewer, Peter Simpson, who will teach the winner how to create their very own Guinness brew.
Gravity Bar is the iconic ‘Head of the Pint’, Dublin’s highest bar and features panoramic, 360-degree views of the city from the floor-to-ceiling glass windows. The transformation of the space into a luxury penthouse was curated by interior designer Graham O’Donnell and features a balance of contemporary Irish craft furniture alongside original Guinness artifacts from the Guinness Archives, including notable works such as the Guinness Toucan.
In 2016, the Guinness Storehouse welcomed 1.65 million visitors from around the world. The Storehouse building was once the brewery fermentation plant and is now a seven-story visitor experience.
