Guinness Storehouse beats the likes of Eiffel Tower to top tourist attraction award

The Guinness Storehouse has been named 'Europe's leading tourist attraction' at an awards ceremony in Sardinia.

The World Travel Awards are considered the Oscars of the travel industry and decided by an open vote.

Guinness won for the visitor centre at their St James's Gate brewery, founded in 1759, which is the home of the 'Black Stuff' in Ireland.

The Storehouse was shortlisted alongside some of Europe's most historic attractions including the Acropolis, Buckingham Palace, the Colosseum and the Eiffel Tower.
