Guinness is so much more than Ireland’s favourite stout. While the brewery at St James’s Gate – complete with 9,000-year lease – remains one of Dublin’s most iconic landmarks, the city also has the Guinness family to thank for the beautiful public parks of St Stephen’s Green and the Iveagh Gardens, as well as the restoration of stunning St Patrick’s Cathedral. Of course, there’s the 7-floor Storehouse, complete with Gravity Bar: the perfect spot for a tall, dark drink.
