Pints brewed every year at St. James' Gate


Spent on goods and services from Irish suppliers

Our success is built on a rich Irish heritage. From the founding of the Guinness brewery in 1759 to the creation of Baileys four decades ago, our beer, liqueur and spirits brands are made with the finest ingredients and represent the best Ireland has to offer.

Our company is sustained through innovation, and we are constantly looking to create new experiences for the tens of million customers in 150 countries who enjoy our Irish brands every year. For example, the Brewers Project, based in the Open Gate Brewery in St. James’s Gate, has introduced a range of small batch beers that are now enjoyed in Ireland and beyond.

At the same time, we work to ensure alcohol can be enjoyed as part of a balanced lifestyle and have invested almost €3 million in the last three years in programmes to help tackle underage drinking, drink driving and excessive or binge drinking.

Our brands

From Dublin to Darwin, iconic Irish brands such as Guinness and Baileys are enjoyed by tens of millions of people every year, along with the rest of our extensive and much-loved portfolio.


Our Reserve brands are key to our company’s success worldwide, delivering growth through innovative production, inspiring design and memorable experiences.
