The Guinness Storehouse is honouring Ireland’s most famous brewer by offering free admission for Brigids, Bríds, McBrides, Gilbrides and any variation or derivative of the name Brigid, this upcoming bank holiday weekend.
From 1st – 6th February (inclusive), visitors can make their way to the Guinness Storehouse admissions desk and produce a valid ID confirming they are over 18 and have a first or surname variation or derivative of ‘Brigid’ to get in for nothing!
The free entry idea acknowledges that according to legend, St. Brigid had a special gift for making beer and once quenched the thirst of a colony of lepers by changing the water for baths into beer. Another time, she transformed dirty bathwater into clean beer for a group of visiting clerics.
During one Easter season, she allegedly used one barrel of beer in her convent to supply beer to eighteen local churches.
St. Brigid also praised beer in verse. She reportedly penned a poem in which she announced she would “like to give a lake of beer to God” and would “love the heavenly host to be tippling there for all eternity.”
It’s one admission per Brigid, subject to availability. First admission 10am, last admission 5pm. For more information, terms and conditions, visit www.guinness-storehouse.com.
The Guinness Storehouse gives visitors the chance to explore the story of Guinness from the iconic building, including 360 views of Dublin city from Gravity Bar, STOUTies (your selfie on a pint) and much more.
In November 2022 the Guinness Storehouse was named ‘World’s Leading Beer Tour Visitor Experience’ at the World Travel Awards (WTA) held in Muscat, Oman.
The Dublin visitor attraction beat global competitors including the Coors Brewery Tour in Colorado and Singapore’s Tiger Brewery Tour to take first place.
