Arthur Guinness @ Celbridge


Guinness was born in the village in 1725 and lived there for 30 years before leaving to start his career.  
The statue was commissioned by Celbridge Tidy Towns with the support of Diageo Ireland. It was created by local sculptor Jarlath Daly.

While Celbridge is the home of the master brewer, neighbouring town of Leixlip claims to be the birthplace of the drink itself. Guinness set up his first brewery in Leixlip.
