Guinness Storehouse

On Friday 15th July GECCO 2011 will host a Gala Reception in the Guinness Storehouse and Gravity Bar,
Ireland's most popular tourist attraction.

The venue opens exclusively for GECCO at 7.30pm.

Starting at 7pm, buses will transport delegates from the Burlington Hotel after the final session on Friday 15th July.
Upon arrival GECCO delegates will have the opportunity to purchase gifts and memorabilia from
the Guinness Store, before they experience a self-guided tour of the Guinness story on their way
to the top two floors of the Storehouse including the spectacular panoramic views from the
famous Gravity Bar. 

Delegates can enjoy food (see menu below), beverages (each delegate receives two complimentary drinks vouchers) and light entertainment which will be provided during the evening before bus transport back to the Burlington Hotel.

Buses will depart the Guinness Storehouse every 30 mins starting from 10.00pm (i.e., 10.00pm, 10.30pm, 11.00pm, 11.30pm and last bus at 12 midnight).

Here's some photos taken at the venue on 1st July (two weeks to go!)
