Smithwick’s Pale Ale
While we have been brewing since 1710, it wasn’t until 1827, with the easing of penal laws, Edmund Smithwick was able to put his name above the gates of his Kilkenny brewery. We celebrate this moment with our award winning Pale Ale, inspired by old recipes from the brewery that’s fruity, grassy and full of flavour.
A more complex session ale brewed with aromatic Amarillo hops for a fuller, fruitier flavour. Smithwick’s Pale Ale is a grand gold winner of the 2015 monde selection awards.

Year round on draught and in bottles
Located in the heart of the St. James’s Gate Brewery, the Guinness Storehouse is Ireland’s most popular tourist attraction. It’s the home of the Black Stuff, the heart of Dublin and an unforgettable start to your Irish adventure.
The journey begins at the bottom of the world’s largest pint glass and continues up through seven floors filled with interactive experiences that fuse our long brewing heritage with Ireland’s rich history. At the top, you’ll be rewarded with a pint of perfection in our world-famous rooftop Gravity Bar. Now that’s our kind of higher education.
A HERITAGE CRAFT
From where it all began—with one man and £100—to where we are now, we’ve been honing our craft since 1759. With over 20 world-class beers in production, and a wealth of exciting new brews being dreamed up daily by our ever-enterprising brewers, it’s no surprise that the Guinness name is known and loved in 150 countries. But, no matter where it is brewed or served, you can be sure your Guinness is still inspired by the pioneering batches of our legendary stout, crafted at St. James’s Gate in Dublin, over 200 years ago.
