“Guinness is arguably one of Dublin’s most iconic exports and is hugely popular with visitors to the capital. Guinness® is synonymous with Ireland so when you're in Dublin, you can't leave without learning how the world-famous drink is made and then sample it for yourself at the end in the panoramic Gravity Bar. Tip - it's really nice to time the gravity bar before evening hits so you can see the lights of the city turn on from the beautiful views from this bar. And don't forget to learn how to pull a "real" pint the way the Dubs do it. - A ‘perfect’ pour of Guinness should take 119.5 seconds at a 45 degree angle!!! ”
