As we approached the factory it gave of the distinctive brewery type smell that filled the air all around. It was absolutely packed inside and we were quite cheeky and got in at student prices. The tour itself was really cool, a self guided at your own pace style tour filled with lots of video interactive type displays and half way through a little tasting of the black gold and then once you make your way up to the top you get a full Pint of the good stuff
We then headed back down and I made Holly check out all the little exhibits we had missed on the other levels and then finally after much walking we headed home back to the hotel. We picked up Giv and headed out to the ‘oldest pub’ in Dublin, actually called the Auldest, but I don’t think anyone actually knows which one is the oldest per say. Anywhos, the service was horrid, but I had the most incredible Guinness and beef pie in a massive Yorkshire Pudding. It was definitely a struggle to finish, but it was worth the fight!! I polished it off with my second pint of Guinness ever and we watched a bit of the Olympics before heading home. The night was still young so we watched a movie then went to sleep.
