A SUSPECT DEVICE found at the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin this afternoon has been described as a false alarm.

People around the James’ Street site were evacuated, and the Army Bomb Disposal Unite summoned, following the alarm being raised, RTÉ reports.

Explosives experts soon gave the all-clear and permitted people back into the area, reports the Irish Examiner.

The Guinness Storehouse is one of the scheduled stops on Britain’s Queen Elizabeth visit to Ireland later this month.
