Airbnb and the Guinness Storehouse have teamed up to offer two lucky guests a VIP night at St. James’s Gate. Travellers in Ireland often make a point of enjoying a pint, or many, of Guinness, and now two lucky beer-lovers will get the ultimate stout-filled experience and be the first tourists to ever spend the night in the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin. Even locals don’t get this kind of access. Get ready for a stout-steeped, Toucan-themed experience during your overnight stay at this beer-lover’s pilgrimage site, the Guinness Storehouse in the heart of Dublin.
For one night only, the iconic Gravity Bar will be transformed into ‘Ireland’s most exclusive bedroom’ – loft-style, Toucan-themed accommodation for two, complete with your very own tasting bar and butler. We’ll take you on VIP tours of the brewery and the Guinness Storehouse, before a Guinness-themed private dinner by our Executive Chef in the Gravity Bar. Its here you will stay for the night with a 360-degree panoramic view of Dublin.
Visit the airbnb.ie listing here, and enter the competition by answering the question: ‘What makes you the world’s biggest Guinness fan?’
According to airbnb : “The Guinness Storehouse is, well, let’s say, spacious. Before you rest for the night explore it with your own personal guide and discover how the world’s best-loved stout is made. You’ll begin at Thomas Street, Arthur Guinness’s home residence. The magic and mystery will begin to unfold as you step through historic railway lines, across cobbled stones and through the underground tunnels. A level of access no public visitor ever gets!
Then, you’ll learn to pour the perfect pint and explore the wonderful world of Guinness advertising and the best views of Dublin city from our Gravity bar, which boasts a 360-degree panoramic view of the city below. By now you should be feeling at home.
Take a few hours to relax, before our expert Beer Specialist and Executive Chef pay you a visit to serve up 6-courses from our Guinness-inspired menu. Reflect on your day of tastings, trivia, and VIP access as you enjoy culinary delights accompanied by an incomparable 360-degree view of the city. Gaze upon the city with your favorite music playing in the background of your loft room that is fully outfitted with the best Sonos speaker to set the scene to a truly unforgettable evening.
Get ready for bed as you’ll sleep looking out to the stars over Dublin. You are now in Ireland’s most exclusive bedroom. The first person to call this home, without having Guinness in their name.
But it doesn’t end there… the next morning after breakfast, our Brewer Peter Simpson will teach you all about the basics of brewing, the various ingredients and what makes Guinness made of more.”
The Guinness Storehouse in Dublin is Offering a One Time Overnight Experience Through Airbnb
It’s a joint promotion with Airbnb that will allow two people to spend the night in the Guinness Storehouse where Arthur Guinness — who they list as the Airbnb host — signed a 9,000-year lease in 1759.
Additionally, the Gravity Bar is where the guests stay. It’s been transformed into a Guinness-themed penthouse decked out with treasures from the Guinness archive to compliment the 360-degree panoramic view of the Dublin skyline. “The lucky winner will be stepping into our founder’s shoes and given the keys to a legacy experience that’s filled with hundreds of years of history,” said Paul Carty, Managing Director of the Guinness Storehouse.
