In the coming two years, the iconic Guinness Storehouse located in Dublin will experience an overhaul and expansion in the region which would worth approximately €16 million. Frequently incorporated in lists of the world’s one of the foremost tourist attractions, the home of Guinness will increase the size of the popular Gravity Bar and make it double. From here, visitors can get one of the best views of Dublin and, obviously, one of the best pints of the black stuff in Ireland.
From the year 2000 when it was first opened, almost 16.5 million people have visited the attraction.
On Monday, the proposal was put forward by the Guinness Storehouse which includes the constructing of a new 360-degree space, connected directly to the original Gravity Bar. It holds the capacity to accommodate 500 people at any one time.
Interestingly, during construction, the Gravity Bar and the storehouse will remain open. The expansion work is expected to start next year, waiting for the planning permission. This entire expansion work is expected to be completed by 2019.
Commenting on the announcement, Paul Carty, Managing Director, Guinness Storehouse said: “The Guinness Storehouse has become part of Dublin. It is the number one visitor attraction, and is a must-see and must-do experience; celebrated by the staff, by tourism in Ireland and by the people of Ireland.
“Staying ahead of the game, innovating and constantly investing has enabled us to provide a world-class experience of one of Ireland’s most iconic brands with huge international demand. We are now excited to reveal the next chapter of the Guinness Storehouse, the expansion of the magnificent Gravity Bar.”
