The Irish brewing industry soon experienced a renaissance, and Arthur Guinness undertook a major brewery expansion. Dublin in the eighteenth century was coming into its own as a prosperous commercial port within the United Kingdom. Much has been written about the thriving maritime trade, the important network of routes that linked the cities on both sides of the Irish Sea—such as Dublin, Waterford, and Cork on the west, to Liverpool and Bristol on the east. Commercially, Dublin had closer ties to England and the English economy than to rural subsistence economy in the west and the interior of Ireland.
It was here, more than a century later, that Arthur Guinness would lease his Dublin brewery. The original medieval St. James’s Gate itself deteriorated over time and was pulled down in 1734. “On the west part of Dublin they have St. James, his Well,” wrote Rich, “And his feast is celebrated the 25th of July, and upon that day, a great mart or fair is kept fast by the Well. ” The fair or festival of St. James was also described by Richard Stanihurst in his 1577 “Description of Dublin,” in which he mentioned booths and ale-poles pitched at St.
James’s Gate, but Guinness kept ale as part of his product portfolio practically until the end of the century. By this time, two of Arthur’s brothers had also made the move from Kildare to Dublin. Richard, who had assisted Arthur at his Leixlip brewery, remained there, but Benjamin came to the city to become a grocer, and young Samuel became a Dublin goldsmith. Samuel would also become the patriarch of a family that would later distinguish itself in banking, politics, and the legal profession. On June 17, 1761, two years after setting up shop in Dublin, 36-year-old Arthur Guinness married 19-year-old Olivia Whitmore, a most eligible young woman.
