the feeling of having a pint of Guinness and watching how Manchester United win over Arsenal : AWESOME!!! 
Guinness announced Dublin’s Arthur’s Day 250th anniversary celebrations on September 24, 2009, the celebrations begin in Dublin at 17:59 local time, with a global toast to Arthur Guinness to mark 250 years since the signing of the 9,000 year lease on the St. James’s Gate brewery and kick off the beginning of the Arthur’s Day global events. 
Temple Bar Area (most happening place for this kind of events) to experience this wonderful moment.

They say you would not have visited Dublin if you did not visit the Guinness Storehouse, so to Guinness  Storehouse I went.
Directions to Guinness Storehouse: 

From Dame Street (outside Trinity College), keep straight ahead. Follow the road around, passing Christchurch on the right and leading onto Thomas Street. At Crane Street turn left, and at the end of the road turn right onto Market Street.
GUINNESS STOREHOUSE is on the right. Journey time 20 mins

This caught my attention!!!!

It was an advertisement in the papers in the early years where Guinness was just brewed. *I mean comon how can stout be any good for the health? you just get drunk and be wasted the next day*
There are 7 floors in the Guinness Storehouse and the 7th floor is the best part of the tour because this is where you will receive your complimentary pint of Guinness beer. Then shit back relax and enjoy the uninterrupted panoramic views across Dublin City which is one of the most spectacular places to visit in Dublin, and one of the most talked about Dublin tourist attractions.
