Congress Banquet, Guinness Storehouse
Sunday July 1st 2018
The much anticipated ISEK Gala Evening will be held in the historic and impressive Guinness Storehouse, a seven storied building which brings to life the history of the famous Guinness brand. Often billed as Ireland’s number one visitor attraction, and voted the leading European tourist attraction in 2015 at the World Travel Awards beating the likes of Paris’s Eiffel Tower, Barcelona’s La Sagrada Familia, the Acropolis in Athens and the Roman Collosseum.
On arrival guests will be guided through and up the seven storey giant pint glass shaped building to the pinnacle of which is the “Gravity” bar which offers stunning panoramic 360° views of Dublin and the surrounding countryside. In the early part of the evening you will have the opportunity to taste different cuisines from around Ireland while taking in the atmosphere of the Storehouse. There will be oysters – shucked to order, a selection of Guinness signature dishes and a selection of the most delicious farmhouse ice-creams in Ireland. Using seasonal Irish ingredients and a selection of Irish Artisan producers, this relaxed casual dining experience will enable you to enjoy the best of Irish food in a fun way. The Storehouse will be free for you to explore and the Gravity bar will be open all evening. Through the evening you’ll have the opportunity to see what made Guinness famous, to learn the skill of pouring your own pint and enjoy a variety of interactive experiences doted throughout the building which fuse Guinness’s long brewing heritage with Ireland’s rich history.
We look forward to you joining us for this amazing opportunity to enjoy the company of your fellow delegates from around the globe, reminisce with old friends and enjoy making new ones in what we are sure will be memorable evening in an iconic Dublin setting.
