There’s no better place to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day than the Guinness Storehouse.
Now there’s another reason. The Guinness Storehouse, Ireland’s number one visitor attraction announces the official opening of the highly anticipated new Gravity Bar.
The new Gravity Bar has more than doubled in size, offering visitors newly extended panoramic views over Dublin. From Queen Elizabeth II to Tom Cruise, the Gravity Bar has welcomed a host of famous faces since its opening in 2000.
Here are some fun facts about the Gravity Bar
- One of the world’s most iconic bars, the new Gravity Bar is 721 square metres and Dublin-based street artist ACHES was commissioned by the Guinness Storehouse to create a bespoke art installation that features on four walls throughout the new Gravity Bar. These unique, eye-catching artworks demonstrate the evolving creativity of the city of Dublin.
- It would take 110,000 pints of Guinness to fill the new Gravity Bar.
- RKD, the architects behind Gravity’s new innovative design, were also the architects behind the initial development of Guinness Storehouse, transforming this from a derelict grain store into a seven-story showcase telling the story of Ireland’s number one tourist attraction.
- Already Ireland’s most popular bar, welcoming over 1.7m visitors every year, the iconic Gravity Bar at the Home of Guinness now presents expanded 360° views across the Dublin skyline.
