Dublin’s Guinness Storehouse has beaten off stiff competition in the form of the Eiffel Tower, Buckingham Palace and the Roman Colosseum amongst many others to be named ‘Europe’s leading tourist attraction’ at the prestigious World Travel Awards.
The 22nd World Travel Awards are decided by open vote – and are known as the equivalent of the Oscars for the travel industry.
The Guinness Storehouse is a must-visit for most travelling tourists from Northern Ireland as well as further afield throughout Europe. Guests learn how it is made, drink samples, and learn how the iron it contains is good for you (well, that’s the lesson we chose to take away from the experience…)
You can also learn how to pour the ‘perfect pint’ of Guinness (which is a lot more complicated than you’d think), where you will receive a special certificate afterwards! To be enjoyed with the panoramic views at Gravity Bar, the Guinness Storehouse’s very own bar – and an experience in itself.
At the seventh storey, Gravity Bar boasts 360° sights over Dublin and you can sit back and enjoy the vista and your complimentary pint of the dark stuff.
The Storehouse welcomed 1.3 million visitors last year, but a record summer has put it on course to surpass that figure in 2015.
