“Not many people get to say they’ve followed in Arthur Guinness’ footsteps through historic railway lines and across the cobbled stones!” the Guinness Storehouse website explains.

“And, sure to be a highlight, you’ll get to experience the infamous underground passenger tunnel that leads to Brewhouse 4, our state of the art brewery where Guinness is brewed today.”

Visitors will also have the chance to experience the Guinness Open Gate Brewery, the location’s experimental brewery, and partake in a unique sampling of limited-edition brews not available anywhere else.
