Dining Bar
Located within the historic grounds of the Guinness Storehouse, 1837 Bar & Brasserie celebrates the best of Ireland. Named after the year Guinness and oysters were named as the perfect match, it is a beer hall with a difference.

Our restaurant offers great views of Dublin city and a menu of classics - smoked salmon, oysters and a rather famous Guinness burger - along with likes of flatbreads, sharing plates and a Guinness chocolate mousse that playfully resembles a glass of the black stuff.

All dishes are designed to be enjoyed with the range of Guinness beers on offer along with a full drinks list.

The Guinness Storehouse restaurants are open to the public without an experience ticket. We ask that restaurant visitors pre-book their table whenever possible. Walk up visitors to our restaurant will be admitted subject to availability. Please be aware restaurant access does not give you Guinness Storehouse Visitor Experience, but you can buy a ticket on arrival at admissions.

Great value and excellent friendly staff. Delicious food. Oysters and Guinness amazing for starters with chicken wings and fish and chips to name a few of their dishes. Not too expensive either.

Our server was very short with us. He did not seem enthusiastic to be serving us at all. He took our order silently, served our food without saying a word, and never came back to follow up on us or check if we needed anything. The restaurant was not crowded at all, so we were unsure why he did not frequent our table. As a result, our table became crowded with dirty plates for the latter portion of our meal. Meanwhile, surrounding tables he was serving had their tables cleared. He was also much more animated serving the others, engaging them in conversation. Not sure why there was a contrast in treatment, however we ultimately felt uncomfortable staying. Beautiful place and the some of the dishes were delicious, however our service was disappointing.

Truly outstanding. My partner & I recently made a trip to the Guinness Storehouse as a day out, and decided we’d treat ourselves to a bite as a way to cap off the tour - dear Christ are we glad we did!
The food was impeccable, we both went for the Beef Sirlion which was truly melt in the mouth, and topped it off with each of the deserts.

After paying our bill and returning home, we booked to visit again for our anniversary in a few weeks.

Truly 10 out of 10 experience- the Guinness wasn’t bad either! 🤣

Het was erg gezellig en lekker, door Corona maatregelen moesten we op vaste prik aanschuiven, maar het was geen probleem om je Guinness mee te nemen. Ze waren wel snel met de gerechten na elkaar serveren.

The food was not very tasty, the service was not inattentive, and it was very noisy. We were hopeful for some proper Irish food and a few pints, but it was disappointing.

No oysters.
Not even burgers available at 18h00 on 23 Dec 22 for a pre-booked reservation.
Soup and flatbread unremarkable at best.
Should have stayed in the Gravity bar.

Everything was fabulous excellent, only one thing I didn’t appreciate was we ate in the 1837 family of 4 absolutely delicious 👍as we spent a lot money in the restaurant I taught automatically we would be initialled to use the Gravity bar! Very disappointing for my 2 adult children which where looking forward to it I know it says u have to be a part of the tour but people on the tour don’t have to use the restaurants but still can use the Gravity bar doesn’t make sense to me after all our meal and drinks in the restaurant was of more money than the tour itself🤷‍♀️It would be great to be able to use the bar even if ur still spending money in the storehouse bit of a key down for us
