For the first time in its 258-year history, stout maker Guinness will hand over the keys of the brewer’s storehouse in Dublin to a pair of guests who will become the first to sleep overnight at the landmark.

Announced ahead of St. Patrick’s Day, the one-off event, in a partnership with Airbnb, will open up the seven-story visitor attraction—a former brewery plant and one of the most popular attractions in Dublin—and transform the top-level bar into the most exclusive room in the country.

Led by a Guinness expert, the experience starts at No. 1 Thomas Street, the family home of founder Arthur Guinness, and takes visitors on a historical journey of the brewery, including access to underground tunnels and historic railway lines normally closed off to the public.

No tour to the Guinness Storehouse would be complete without a lesson on how to pour the perfect Guinness pint, which is also on the agenda.

After the tour, guests will sit down to a six-course Guinness-inspired menu in the Gravity Bar, which offers 360-degree panoramic views of the city.

Guests will also spend the night at the bar in a special ‘pint-shaped’ bed, and will be able to amuse themselves with a pool table, life-sized Jenga game, and telescope for star-gazing.

After breakfast the next day, brewer Peter Simpson will teach guests about the basics of brewing.

To enter the competition, would-be guests must answer the question: “What makes you the world’s biggest Guinness fan?”

The competition closes March 22 and the sleepover takes place April 24.
