The View from the Gravity Bar

Here's a very short video that shows the view from where we were sitting in the Guinness Gravity Bar in Dublin. Central Dublin (south of the River Liffey) is visible in the background behind us. It's hard to make out much, but it's the area of the Temple Bar district, Trinity University, and St. Stephens Green. To the right of the frame are the Wicklow Mountains, where the water for Guinness comes from.

I think three videos involving Guinness are enough for now. Complete coverage of our Dublin tour starts here.

Perfect Pints in the Guinness Gravity Bar

Yes, another video involving Guinness. Well, it is Dublin after all. This is from a visit to the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin last week, one of the high points of our Dublin vacation. September 24, 2009 marks the 250th anniversary of the famous Irish stout, and the party is just getting started.

Kicking Off our Dublin Holiday at the Brazen Head

Jenn and I recently returned from a wonderful five-day vacation in Dublin, Ireland. I threw together a series for on our trip that can be found here. This video depicts our first-ever pints of Guinness in Dublin, which we enjoyed at the Brazen Head pub. The Brazen Head bills itself as the oldest pub in Ireland (established 1198) and I'm in no position to dispute that. It was a fine venue to toast the start of our holiday.
