In December, the Guinness Storehouse was named the World's Leading Tourist Attraction 2023, as well as the World's Leading Beer Tour Visitor Experience 2023, at the World Travel Awards, accolades that the Storehouse team hopes will continue to drive traffic through 2024. 

“The Guinness Storehouse has been in this location and open as a visitor experience and a brand experience for 23 years now and throughout that 23 years we continued to invest in creating a world-class experience,” Storehouse managing director Catherine Toolan told the PA in December.

“The World Travel Awards is really the Oscars of the travel industry. It’s an award that’s been going on for 30 years.

” We have won Europe’s leading experience in 2015 and also the World Travel Award for the leading beer tour experience.

“But this year was the pinnacle by winning the world’s leading tour experience, competing against the likes of the Taj Mahal, the Ferrari experience (in Abu Dhabi), the Great Wall of China and the Walt Disney resort in Florida.

“I’m so proud of the team. It’s a brilliant award for us. And it’s a brilliant award for the city as well and for tourism in Ireland.”
