This new Guinness Bar experience in T1 is a once-off creation. It is designed to a modern industrial look, taking design inspiration from various sites across the famous St James’s Gate brewery including The Guinness Storehouse, the old Guinness bank building, and the Guinness Open Gate Brewery. Passengers will also be able to sit in the Guinness Gravity Bar-inspired snug that offers visuals of the views they would experience if they were in the actual Guinness Storehouse in Dublin 8.

Lenny Miller, Head of Advertising Sales at Dublin Airport, added, “An Irish media first, the Guinness Bar experience enables Diageo to connect with millions of consumers from all over the world, giving them the chance to enjoy a perfectly-served Diageo product from an extensive portfolio. This new bar experience will also give Diageo the opportunity to showcase their wide global footprint of their outstanding collection of brands across spirits and beer.”
