Naturally no visit to Dublin would be complete without a stop in the Guinness storehouse (aka brewery). The entire facility takes up several city blocks, and within is a seven story museum/visitor center built in the shape of a pint of Guinness.
On the very top floor, with a view out over Dublin, we were served a complimentary pint by a very nice young bartender - Carolina, a girl from Spain who came to Dublin a year ago to find work and improve her English.
The perfect pint. After the initial pour, one must let the foam settle for a full 120 seconds before topping off the pint. The clover art in the foam is optional.
