The Home of Guinness, Dublin, unveils a summer long season of festivities to mark Guinness 250. This summer, for the months of June, July and August, Guinness Storehouse, Ireland's number one visitor attraction will host a season of music, lectures, tours and demonstrations to celebrate the 250th anniversary of the Guinness Company. With over 90 events planned, the Guinness Storehouse 250 Festival kicked off on the 1st June and will run until the 30th August. Festival events will take place daily and will feature a strong Guinness and Irish theme. At weekends, Ireland's number one visitor attraction will become a spectacle of music and dance. A Céilí Mór (traditional Irish social dance) with a live Céilí band and troupe of professional Irish dancers will bring the house down in a maelstrom of merry-making and revelry each Saturday. Visitors will have the opportunity to take to the floor and learn traditional Irish set dances such as the Walls of Limerick and Siege of Ennis. All Ireland and World Dancing Champions and Musicians will perform a lively and entertaining show of Modern Irish dance, similar to shows such as Riverdance and Lord of the Dance. Many of the dancers have performed with these shows in the past. On Sundays in the Source Bar, the living tradition of Irish music will be realised with a traditional Irish music session or "seisún" of jigs, reels and Irish ballads. In addition, on three separate afternoons, on 19th June, 17th July and 28th August, a select audience of lucky visitors will have a rare opportunity to Enjoy a Guinness with a Guinness. Rory Guinness is eighth generation Guinness, descended directly from Arthur. A Dubliner and brewer by birth, Rory is passionate about the great legacy his family has bestowed on Dublin. Rory will be happy to regale a few tales from his family’s history and to answer questions visitors may have.
