At LNOF, we don't do things by halves. There's not one activity, restaurant or bar we offer, that we haven't thoroughly tested out ourselves. So, when given the opportunity to visit the Emerald Isle - we packed up our ginger wigs, leprechaun hats and anything else green we could find within a six mile radius. All in the name of 'research', of course...
First on our hit list was the world renowned Guinness Storehouse. Attracting over 1,000,000 tourists each year, it's Dublin's most popular and well-loved attraction. Well, if it's good enough for A-list visitors such as Taylor Swift, Barack Obama, Tom Cruise, the entire Lord of the Rings cast and even The Queen - it's good enough for us.
Located at St James' Gate, The Storehouse has been the site of Guinness brewing since 1759, producing serious amounts of booze annually - making the company almost two million Euros each year.
"The Guinness Storehouse is designed in the shape of a giant pint glass. So giant, it could hold 14.3 million pints. That's a big night, even for us."

We had our very own guide, Leo, taking us around the factory, dropping impressive facts about the firm's 250 year history (and plying us with Guinness) as we went. The whopping, seven-storey building is cleverly designed in the shape of a huge pint glass - so huge, in fact, that it would hold 14.3 million pints of Guinness (that's a big night out, even for us).
Across the seven floors, we learnt about orientation/ingredients, brewing, tasting, advertising and even pouring the perfect pint.
