Hi Ian, Thank you so much for the feedback. It sounds like you had a great end to your trip in Dublin at the Home of Guinness. The Connoisseur Experience is amazing so we are glad to hear you enjoyed sampling our different beers and learning all about them. Ending your day watching the rugby in Arthur's Bar sounds perfect. We are happy we could brighten up that miserable, wet Sunday for you. We'd love to see you come visit us again in the future. Thank you, from the Guinness Storehouse Olivia
