Guinness Bar Experience unveiled at Dublin Airport
Dublin Airport has a potential new haunt for St Patrick’s Day after celebrating the official opening of a new immersive Guinness Bar Experience in Terminal 1.
The new Guinness Bar will offer passengers an immersive experience pre-flight where they can sample a range of beers and ciders including Guinness, Ireland’s favourite stout, and Guinness 0.0, its latest alcohol-free alternative.
Passengers can also avail of Smithwicks Red Ale, Hop House 13 lager and the Rockshore lager range.
According to the airport, the new Guinness Bar Experience in T1 is a once-off creation and 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.
On top of a world-class beer offering, passengers can also sample Smirnoff cocktails and grab a bite to eat. Sport will be shown on big screens in the bar so passengers can savour the action of all big sporting events including Guinness Six Nations rugby international matches before catching their flight.
This project is a joint collaboration between Diageo, The Wright Group and daa, the operators of Dublin Airport.
Vincent Harrison, managing director at Dublin Airport, said: “As we see passenger numbers increase in Dublin Airport every day and we want to ensure that our customers have a quality food and beverage experience, with a sense of connectedness to Ireland.
“This new partnership with Diageo and The Wright Group offers a new and exciting experience to the travelling public before they depart Ireland.”
While Kevin Barry, strategic account manager at Diageo, enthused: “The new Guinness bar will provide consumers with an opportunity to enjoy a perfectly-served pint of plain before travelling to their next destination.”
