Dublin museum voted Europe’s leading visitor experience... again
EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum has been voted as Europe’s Leading Tourist Attraction for the third year running.
The Dublin museum beat off strong competition from the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, the Colosseum and Buckingham Palace at the World Travel Awards.
The World Travel Awards are among the most prestigious travel awards, and EPIC is the first visitor attraction to be voted as Europe’s Leading Tourist Attraction three times in a row.
The various displays and interactive features at the museum tell the powerful story of 10 million Irish people who travelled abroad to start a new life. The museum takes visitors on a journey of emigration from Ireland, to the far corners of the globe including America, Canada, New Zealand and Australia.
“We are very proud to accept the title of Europe’s Leading Tourist Attraction for the third year in a row," Patrick Greene, CEO and Museum Director of EPIC, said.
"It is testament to the resilience, creativity and commitment of all our staff to providing a world class experience. Being recognised by our visitors, neighbours and stakeholders in voting for us to win this title ahead of so many iconic European landmarks really is a boost in the times we are in and for Irish tourism.
"We continue to honour the diaspora abroad and recognise the vital contributions that Irish people have made worldwide. Thank you to the thousands of people who have voted for us.”
