Speaking this morning, Fáilte Ireland CEO Shaun Quinn congratulated the Storehouse and hailed their win as a great boost for Irish tourism:
“In what is shaping up to be a record year for the tourism sector, this win confirms that we must be getting something right. When you consider that this was an open worldwide public vote and that the Storehouse beat back competition from the Acropolis, Buckingham Palace, the Colosseum and the Eiffel Tower, you know that the Storehouse must be delivering what visitors want – truly authentic and memorable experiences. I’d like to congratulate Managing Director Paul Carty and all the team at the Guinness Storehouse for their impressive performance”.
