St James's Gate, Guinness Brewery, Dublin 8
St James's Gate, Guinness Brewery
Traditionally, St James's Gate lay just outside the walls of the medieval city of Dublin.
The Gate was the city’s western customs house where tolls (taxes) were collected by the city officials from people entering the city of Dublin. Everyone who wanted to enter Dublin city from the south and the west, had to enter the city through this gate. The area has always been associated with St James and the holy well of St James lay next to the Gate.
Originally leased in 1759 to Arthur Guinness at £45 per year for 9,000 years, the St James's Gate area has been the home of Guinness ever since. It became the largest brewery in Ireland in 1838, and the largest in the world by 1886, with an annual output of 1.2 million barrels.
