Whether you're planning a trip for some friends coming from abroad or you're simply looking for something to do for a weekend, the Guinness Storehouse is a must-see for any tour of Dublin, which is why it has been shortlisted as one of Europe's leading tourist attractions in the world travel awards.

The Guinness Storehouse has been shortlisted as a finalist in the ‘Europe’s leading tourist attraction’ category in the prestigious World Travel Awards. Known as 'the Oscars of the travel industry', this will be the 22nd year that the awards have been celebrated, and the Guinness Storehouse is Ireland’s first attraction to be shortlisted.

Paul Carty, Managing Director of the Guinness Storehouse commented on the latest endorsement saying that "today is a very proud day for the team. We are absolutely thrilled to be recognised on the same stage as some of Europe's most iconic visitor attractions...The team in Guinness Storehouse works extremely hard to push the boundaries of industry excellence. We would be delighted if the people of Ireland could help us claim the ultimate accolade by voting Guinness Storehouse as Europe’s leading tourist attraction".

The voting takes place over on the World Travel Awards site where you can vote for the Storehouse, while other other historic and famous attractions also listed on the shortlist include the Acropolis, Athens, Buckingham Palace, England, La Sagrada Familia, Spain, Ribeira do Porto, Portugal, the Roman Coliseum, Italy and the Eiffel Tower, France.

Voting closes on July 26th, and the World Travel Awards European gala ceremony will be held in Forte Village, Sardinia on September 5th, 2015, where the winner will be revealed.
