The Guinness Storehouse in Dublin has been named as the world’s leading tourist attraction of 2023 at the World Travel Awards.

The facility beat some of the world’s most celebrated attractions, including Niagara Falls, the Great Wall of China and Machu Picchu in Peru to claim the title in Dubai.

The storehouse also earned the title of the top beer tour visitor experience for the second year in a row.

Alice Mansergh, chief executive designate of Tourism Ireland, said: “Congratulations to the Guinness Storehouse on being named World’s Leading Tourist Attraction 2023 and, for the second year in a row, World’s Leading Beer Tour Visitor Experience.

“These are truly significant accolades.

“Compelling things to see and do give overseas visitors more reasons to holiday on the island of Ireland.”
