The amazing reason is that the Guinness Factory only pays £45 a year in rent

I was drooling at the array of artisan cheeses laid out in front of me, desperate to rush in.

We finally move on, starting with cream and gray cheddar cheese, before sampling the sweet Killeen Gouda made by a Dutch cheesemaker in the Netherlands. Galway.

At Sheridan’s Cheesemongers, a charming little shop in the center Dublin, a constant long queue of customers.

This was the first stop on my three-hour food tour of Irish people capital.

Like most vibrant cities, Dublin has struggled for the past 18 months. But now craic is good and really back.

Its cobbled streets are packed with bars, restaurants and clubs, making it the perfect spot for a weekend party.

But there is so much more to this fair city.

In recent years, hundreds of independent food businesses have sprung up in the back alleys around Grafton Street – and you can sample the best of them on the Fab Food Trail.

On the trail, we enjoyed delicious food from eight restaurants, while learning about the history of the streets we walked.

At Loose Canon on Drury Street, we dive into a range of colorful processed meats, washed with organic alcohol.

Afterwards, we headed to the chic Seafood Café for fresh local oysters served with Guinness soda bread and whipped lemon butter.

Make sure to leave plenty of room for dessert.

Sweet lovers should head to Pepper Pot Cafe, which sells a number of delicious cakes and pies, including classic Victorian sponges, rich macaroons and gluten-free pastries.

However, the standout point of interest for us was the Thirty Ice Cream Lab. Here, chemist-like employees took to the stage, using liquid nitrogen to create batches of whipped cream to the delight of customers.

I was mesmerized when dry ice poured from the top of the barrel like something from the potion-making scene in Harry Potter.

My stomach is really full, I’m relieved that my hotel is a short walk away.

Located on the corner of Stephen Street Lower, the brand new Grafton Hotel is charming and modern.

The red velvet beds are ornate and downstairs there’s an elegant art deco bar serving art cocktails and Irish fare.

It’s in the heart of the action, with many of the most popular clubs and bars all within walking distance.

If you’re going for a drink, you’ll want to sample some Guinness and whiskey at the Roe And Co distillery, which offers blending and flavor tours.

A cocktail course helps guests categorize their taste preferences, which they will then use to create their own unique concoction.

If you’re a fan of Guinness records, cross the street to the Guinness Storehouse, which offers daily tours from £15.

Founded by Arthur Guinness – who signed a 9,000-year lease with an annual interest rate of £45 in 1949 – the St James Street brewery no longer produces blacks but is instead a museum fascinating about all things Guinness.

You can even print your lovely image on top of a cake.
