Waterford Treasures has received news that the Irish Museum of Time has been nominated for the British Guild of Travel Writers’ International Tourism Awards for 2022.
Statement By Waterford Treasures’ Director
Speaking on the news of the nomination, Waterford Treasures’ director, Eamonn McEneaney, said, “It is a huge honour for us to even just be nominated for these global awards. We understand that we are currently the only visitor attraction in Ireland to receive a nomination this year. The British Guild of Travel Writers’ awards are nominated and voted on by the industry’s best travel writers. Therefore, the benefit for us of this profiling alone in reaching this key audience is incredible. All of the team are thrilled and honoured. The entire team at Waterford Treasures and the Irish Museum of Time work very hard to ensure each and every visitor enjoys their experience, and this nomination is very much a testament to that hard work.
“We are also delighted to showcase what we have to offer here in Waterford City, as part of Ireland’s Ancient East, to this prestigious guild of travel writers and at the International Tourism Awards.”

The Irish Museum of Time will now move to the next stage of the awards journey, wherein the guild members vote on the attractions that should move forward to the shortlisting stage, and then on to the finalist stage, if selected. The British Guild of Travel Writers’ International Tourism Awards finale is an awards ceremony held in London each November, on the eve of the World Travel Market trade fair.
The Irish Museum of Time opened to visitors in 2021, and it is the fifth museum to form part of the Waterford Treasures suite. Further details can be found at WaterfordTreasures.com.
