The shortlist included Coors Brewery Tour and Miller Brewery Tour in the US, the Maui Brewing Company in Hawaii and the Tiger Brewery Tour in Singapore.

“These are truly significant accolades,” she added. “Compelling things to see and do give overseas visitors more reasons to holiday on the island of Ireland.”

Catherine Toolan, managing director of Diageo Irish Brand Homes, said:  “This is a very special moment for us at the Guinness Storehouse.

“It means the world to our team to be recognised on a global stage and to bring these awards home to Dublin and The Liberties.”

The Guinness Storehouse tells the story of one of Ireland’s most recognisable brands.

As well as learning what goes into making each pint, visitors learn about its history and famous advertising.
