Guinness is synonymous with Ireland and no visit to Dublin is complete without a trip to the Guinness Storehouse – the Home of Guinness. An excellent venue for your next event!! Buy out the entire building or just a floor!
Located in the heart of the legendary St. James’s Gate Brewery in Dublin, this production site has been home to the Guinness Brewery since 1759, when Arthur Guinness signed a lease for 9,000 years. Now that is forward thinking!!!
The Guinness Storehouse building dates back to 1904 and is built in the style of the Chicago School of Architecture. It was once the fermentation plant of the brewery and is now a seven-storey visitor experience dedicated to the history of the making of this world famous beer.

Dublin City is adorned with many famous streets, buildings from all periods of time throughout history from medieval through to Georgian and onto the modern facades you see around you today however also located within the city confines lay some of the most attractive parks and gardens one could find anywhere else. St. Stephen’s Green 22 acre Park is just lovely and Ireland’s best known Victorian public park. Re-opened by Lord Ardilaun (Arthur Guinness) in 1880. The Shelbourne Hotel (a Marriott 5 star property) is just across the street from the Park. ... See MoreSee Less
I had the pleasure of visiting and staying at the Shelbourne Hotel, one of Dublin’s most prestigious and historic five star properties. For almost 200 years it has stood at the centre of Ireland’s capital, looking out over the beautiful St. Stephen’s Green and surrounded by the city’s main cultural and historical sites and shopping areas.Magnificently restored and majestically conducted, The Shelbourne offers exquisitely appointed guest rooms, spectacular meeting spaces, and a tempting choice of menus, bars, and lounges. The exceptional range of amenities includes an opulent spa, beauty salon, gentlemen’s barbershop, and health club with a swimming pool, as well as an in-house florist, and genealogy butler. It’s simply gorgeous. The Shelbourne, Autograph Collection perfect hotel for your incentive or high-end program with @ATouchofIreland ... See MoreSee Less
Dublin has so much character and tonight I’m staying the Marker Hotel. A new Irish Hotel that is very hip and modern. A Hotel With Natural Inspiration. The name of The Marker lends a unique insight into old Dublin history. The name of the hotel comes from the Grand Canal, an 82-mile inland trade route lined with iron “markers.” Back in the day, each marker indicated to the traveler how far they were from the end of the canal. Something totally new and exciting for you to try.

In the late 70s/early 80s when I made frequent visits to Dublin, I used to stay in the Gresham or the Shelbourne. Both were classic English style hotels but a bit stuck in their ways It would be interesting to see how they have changed. My last visit, probably 15 years ago we stayed in a Hilton but it would be interesting to stay somewhere with a more Irish character. Recommendations please
