The Guinness Storehouse celebrated the recent Summer with a ‘Height of Summer’ experience which included seven floors of botanic installations, live music performances, art exhibitions and more.
The project included a transformation of the world-famous Gravity Bar into Ireland’s Highest Garden, offering visitors a unique chance to enjoy both a pint and a panoramic view over Dublin including the Phoenix Park and the Dublin Mountains while surrounded by the new garden installation from Mark Grehan.
The ‘Height of Summer’ exhibition transformed the Guinness Storehouse into the ultimate Summer destination, with an interactive garden exhibit stretching across seven floors including living walls, curated planters and exclusive photo-opportunities throughout the iconic building.
The exhibition also featured an art showcase by Hang Tough Gallery featuring local artists Grace Enemaku, Fuchsia MacAree and others. The curation included art that encapsulated the feeling of an Irish Summer, highlighting quiet moments of contemplation, details in nature and observations from everyday life.
Throughout the Summer, the Storehouse also hosted a line-up of DJs in the Gravity Garden, making this panoramic bar the best place in the city in which to enjoy Summer tunes and a pint of the Black Stuff. DJs played in Gravity every night from 3pm Monday to Thursday and from 1pm Friday to Sunday.
The Guinness family has a strong historical presence in many of the city’s most beautiful green spaces, from donating St Patrick’s Park as public gardens in 1901 to commissioning the famous Oscar Wilde statue in Merrion Square. Guinness Storehouse has created a map of Dublin celebrating ‘Guinness Green Spaces’ throughout the years.
