Here’s How You Can Win a Sleepover at the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin
Beer-themed getaways are so hot right now. But in case you can’t afford a vacation to an IPA hotel, Guinness is giving away a free stay at its storehouse in Dublin on April 24th, where the winner will be able to partake in VIP tours, tastings, and a private dinner complete with 360-degree views of the city.
“The lucky winner will be stepping into our founder’s shoes and given the keys to a legacy experience that’s filled with hundreds of years of history,” Paul Carty, the managing director of Guinness Storehouse, said in the press release.
You can enter the giveaway here, which is presented in partnership with Airbnb. In case your appetite is not already whetted by this incredible-sounding sleepover, here’s a breakdown of the evening:
First, you’ll get a tour led by a Guinness expert — starting at No. 1 Thomas Street, where founder Arthur Guinness lived — and get access to usually-private underground tunnels and historic railway lines. Then you’ll get a lesson on how to pour a proper pint of Guinness — which is apparently more complex than it looks (and if you get it wrong, your pub will be boycotted by angry Irish-Canadians).
Afterward, guests will dine on a Guinness-inspired six-course meal at the Gravity Bar with giant windows and panoramic views of the city. You’ll also sleep in a pint-shaped bed in the world’s coolest bedroom, complete with a pool table, giant-sized Jenga, and a massive telescope. Over breakfast the next morning, you’ll learn the secrets to brewing the perfect beer from Guinness brewer Peter Simpson.
