Airbnb and the Guinness Storehouse have teamed up to offer two lucky guests a VIP night at St. James's Gate.

After years teaching visitors how to pull the perfect pint, the Guinness Storehouse looks set to pull off the perfect overnight stay in Dublin.

For one night only, the iconic Gravity Bar will be transformed into 'Ireland's most exclusive bedroom' - loft-style, Toucan-themed accommodation for two, complete with your very own tasting bar and butler.

A “perfect pint”-shaped bed, pool table, life-sized Jenga and giant telescope complete the furnishings for a unique night under the stars.

So how can you spend 24 hours in the Black Stuff's boudoir?

The competition closes on March 22, and the prize can be redeemed on Monday, April 24 only (full terms and conditions are online).

Airbnb's 'Night At' competitions have been hugely popular as publicity stunts, offering winners everything from a night at Dracula's Castle in Transylvania to an evening sleeping with the sharks at Aquarium de Paris.

The Guinness getaway is Ireland's first ever 'Night At' wheeze - and it kicks off with a Beer Specialist handing over the keys to the Storehouse.

From there, the winner and their guest will experience life beyond the gates with rare, behind-the-scenes access to the legendary brewery.

The winners will enjoy a full Guinness Storehouse experience with a private tour of the facility (including those hidden tunnels), topped off with a six-course dining experience prepared by Executive Chef Justin O’Connor.

What's on the menu? Think Irish ingredients and creative pairings like Guinness grain-fed beef rib, shitake & Korean red chilli broth, and a dessert table with Guinness chocolate mousse, white chocolate popcorn and other goodies.

The following morning, winners will be treated to an Irish breakfast before meeting with Guinness Brewer, Peter Simpson, who will teach them how to create their very own Guinness brew.

“The lucky winner will be stepping into our founder’s shoes and given the keys to a legacy experience that’s filled with hundreds of years of history,” said Paul Carty, Managing Director of the Guinness Storehouse.

"Guinness is one of the most iconic beers in the world, and we are excited to open up the opportunity to live in its home for the very first time,” said Aisling Hassell, Global Head of Customer Experience, Airbnb.

In 2016, the Guinness Storehouse welcomed 1.65 million visitors.
