1837 Bar & Brasserie at Guinness Storehouse

Visit & Vibes

Today I was going around the Guinness Storehouse doing the self-guided tour, and after a few drinks, I needed some food.

I spotted a few places, but this one looked like they had a few tables available as it was VERY busy today.

On entering this place was very nice, and we were seated next to a window which was great as we had a table with a great view over the city.

The Food

I wanted something big for my lunch and decided on these.

Guinness BBQ sticky hot wings €9.00
Kearney’s blue cheese dip

On arrival this looked very good, and a good-sized portion.

I took a bite and oh ok, the chicken was nice and tender and there was an ok amount of meat to it but the flavour hmm it was nice but I didn’t really get any BBQ flavour just a hint of honey and that was it.

The dip was amazing! I just love blue cheese and this was so good!

Overall it was an ok starter.

Double Guinness Cheeseburger €19
Crispy bacon, pickle, cheese, brioche bun, house fries

On arrival, this was BIG and looked very very very tasty!

I will be honest, I didn’t expect it to be a good burger but just an ok burger! I was very wrong!

I started with the fries and these were perfectly cooked, had a lovely crispness to them and were perfectly salted…this was off to a good start.

I then took a BIG bite of the burger and wow! the patties were lovely and juicy, the flavours of everything together were really good and I loved every bite.

This was a really good double cheeseburger, and it was much better than I thought here would do.

I was so full after this, but I would easily have this again when I revisit.

I can’t do half marks on my star rating but I would give this a 4.5 if I could.

Baileys Coffee €7
Baileys, espresso, milk, chocolate

No room for a dessert after that massive double cheeseburger, but room for a wee coffee.

Just as you would expect, it was lovely and warm with a nice baileys flavour to start with rounding off with a subtle coffee end.

This was a perfect end to a very good meal.

Final Thoughts…

Totally not expected it, as I expected more tourist-quick food but was very pleasantly surprised.

My starter today was just ok, but the burger wow so good and one I look forward to having again.

If you book tickets to do the tour, book online to reserve a table as it is a VERY busy place!
