The Guinness Storehouse attracts thousands of visitors each year. They come to get the low down on the famous Irish stout often referred to as the ‘black stuff’. Arthur Guinness started his first brewery in 1755, with 100 pounds he inherited from his Godfather, Arthur Price, the Archbishop of Cashel. In 1759, he signed a 9000 year lease on a disused building in St James Gate, Dublin, for an initial cost of 100 pounds, plus 45 pounds a year annual rent, which included water rights Ten years later, the first exports of six and a half barrels left Dublin, bound for England. The rest, as they say is history. All that history is contained at the Storehouse. Ireland’s number one tourist attraction. Guinness Storehouse Executive Chef Justin O’Connor is well used to feeding many of these vistors at Gilroy’s at Guinness Storehouse. Of course he often uses a tipple or two of Ireland’s top drop to flavour his food. We have one of his special recipes for you to create at home. His Signature Beef And Guinness Stew is a favourite on the menu. It will be a favourite in your house too.
