The Guinness barges ferried beer barrels from the James Street brewery to Victoria Quay where the Guinness ships docked. Up until the late 1950's the barges were used extensively on Ireland's waterways to transport kegs of Guinness. Their funnels were hinged, enabling them to be lowered when travelling under the Liffey's bridges at high tides, (see video clip below).
