This Dublin landmark was just named the best tourist attraction in Europe

And it beat out some ridiculous competition.

WE KNEW IT was a half decent spot to visit when you’re in Dublin, but now the Guinness Storehouse has won some international recognition as well.

The Storehouse was named as Europe’s leading tourist attraction by the World Travel Awards last night. And a quick look at the other nominees shows the fairly ridiculous standard of competition it was up against:

  • Acropolis, Athens
  • Buckingham Palace, England
  • La Sagrada Familia, Spain
  • Ribeira do Porto, Portugal
  • the Roman Colosseum, Italy
  • the Eiffel Tower, France

Not bad at all.

By winning this award, the Storehouse is automatically in the running to be named as the world’s leading tourist attraction by the same organisation.

Can it go one better? It’s going to be scary to see the shortlist for the global award, if the European one features such esteemed destinations.

Even though Guinness has branched out to non-alcoholic drink in Asia recently, it’s still nice to see the old Storehouse turning heads.
