A Guinness Micro Museum has popped up at Pygmalion for St Patrick’s week
A fun cultural experience with selfie ops – get a photo with the original Guinness ad, with a replica of the original lease, or ‘in front of’ the world-famous St James’s Gates!
On 15 and 16 March you can also hold the Guinness Six Nations trophy and capture your own selfie on the head of a pint of Guinness!
Looking for different and fun ways to celebrate St Patrick’s week? Pygmalion, one of Dublin’s best loved pubs, restaurants, and clubs, has partnered with one of Ireland’s most famous brands, Guinness, to create a micro museum for St Patrick’s week within their Pyg complex at Powerscourt Town House!
The self-guided walk-through experience, which is open until Saturday 19th March, explores the story of Guinness through the ages. It showcases iconic moments in the heritage and progression of the brand through the years, offering an interactive and fun cultural experience that you won’t want to miss!
One of the highlights on display in the Guinness Micro Museum is a replica of the original 9,000-year lease for the world-famous St. James’s Gate brewery that was signed and sealed in 1759 by Arthur Guinness himself.
You’ll also learn about the introduction of the brand’s trademark label, the harp; see Guinness’s first advertisement; and discover more about draught Guinness, the world’s first nitrogenated beer.
As well as being an interesting cultural experience, the Guinness Micro Museum at Pygmalion also has some great photo opportunities for the week that’s in it, including a replica of the famous Guinness branded gates.
And if you head along on the 15th and 16th March, you can even order a STOUTie, a pint of Guinness printed with your own selfie on the head of the iconic black and white stout.
And drumroll… there will also be a chance to pose with the legendary Guinness Six Nations trophy on those dates!
The best bit? It’s free.
After the experience, you can relax for lunch or drinks at Pygmalion so it’s a great excuse to organise a get together with friends or work colleagues.
The Guinness Micro Museum is also expected to attract visitors to the city who are looking for a unique Irish experience.
Owner of Pygmalion, Paul McGlade, said, “We’re delighted to create this special experience with Guinness for St Patrick’s week, as it’s such an iconic Irish brand. Come on in and don’t have FOMS -fear of missing ‘st’out!”
The Guinness Micro Museum at the Pygmalion complex in Powerscourt Town House on South William Street opened today Friday 11th March and runs for one week until Saturday 19th March, from 12pm to 6pm daily.
