Yes, if the Guinness in the pubs on your crazy nights isn’t enough, you can get a very educational tour of where it’s made. Knowledge is power, I suppose. Yes, the Guinness Storehouse is a must for any stag do. All seven floors of it. A full stout experience for the masses. Not only does it give you the full 250-year history of the famous brand, but, of course, you’ll also get to drink plenty of the good stuff. While learning about what makes the perfect pint, you’ll meet tasting points along the way. Moreover, there’s the gravity bar, which gives out to a perfect view of the heart of Dublin, on top of multiple other bars in the building. There’s even a bistro restaurant where you can mix some classic Irish dishes into your stag do. No trip to Dublin, let alone stag do, is complete without visiting the storehouse. More info here.
