The Guinness Storehouse is the first of Ireland´s attractions to be nominated for the Oscars of the travel industry
Irish people love beer. Everybody knows that. According to a recent study, Ireland is the sixth in a group of 34 nations, with the average Irish adult consuming 227 bottles of beer per year.
And this love became a successful business. Today, The Guinness Storehouse is one of the most famous attractions in Ireland. The site was Ireland’s most popular visitor attraction in 2014, when 1,269,371 guests visited the factory.
Ninety-three percent of all visitors to the Guinness Storehouse in 2014 were from overseas. American was the most represented nationality among the visitors, followed by British and French.
This popularity is about to be honoured. Guinness Storehouse has become Ireland’s first tourist attraction to be shortlisted in the ‘Europe’s leading tourist attraction’ category in the World Travel Awards, the ‘Oscars of the travel industry’.
The shortlist also includes the Acropolis (Greece), Buckingham Palace(England), La Sagrada Familia(Spain), Ribeira do Porto(Portugal), the Roman Coliseum(Italy) and the Eiffel Tower (France).
