Last Thursday Metcalfe’s Food Company headed out for our epic, if a little late, summer party. We were on our way to Dublin for 2 days of team building, cultural tours (visiting the Guinness factory) and plenty of eating and drinking.
Friday was spent crossing high wires and zip lining in the autumnal Dublin weather (rain, rain and more rain). With lots of team encouragement, we all successfully completed the activities. Team built and bonded we then headed out to Ireland’s number one visitor attraction – The Guinness Factory.
The Guinness factory takes you through a journey of how Guinness is made and how the company exploded into what it is today; brewed in 49 countries worldwide with 10 million glasses of enjoyed every day around the world.
A section of the tour is dedicated to the history of Guinness advertising, starting with the ‘Guinness is Good For You’ campaign, moving on to a selection of their varied TV ads, a few our favourites include: Sea Horse and Surfers, Dancing Man, and Bring it Life.
