The self-guided tour is so-so and more focused on advertising than history or information. Even on a Tues afternoon off of peak season it was very crowded and difficult to hear the tour guides.
The Beer Tasting portion of the tour was fun and interesting.
The Gravity Bar at the end made the whole experience worth it, amazing view and great place to enjoy your pint (included in the cost of admission).
If you go, I recommend skipping most of the tour and just going straight to the highlights. The tasting and gravity bar were best. The 'Guinness Academy' may also be worth it but we skipped it as the queue was huge.
If you're going, consider using the Dublin Pass and hitting up a few other places the same day.
