Irish Museum Of Time Selected As Only Irish Finalist In Tourism Awards

The Irish Museum of Time has been selected as the only Irish finalist for the British Guild of Travel Writers’ International Tourism Awards 2022.


Speaking about the news of reaching the final stages, Waterford Treasures director Eamonn McEneaney said, “When we heard the news earlier this week, we were absolutely bowled over. Being shortlisted for these awards a couple of months ago was, to us, a really wonderful achievement, but to now be listed in the top six visitor attractions in the UK and Ireland is a real feat, and we are overjoyed.

“The entire team at Waterford Treasures work tirelessly to ensure that the very best visitor experience is delivered to all of our guests, day in and day out. Therefore, this finalist position is really a testament to that hard work, and such a wonderful reward for us all.”

Speaking about reaching the final, travel writer and journalist Isabel Conway said, “This is a real testament to the wonderful visitor attraction that is the Irish Museum of Time. This category in the 2022 awards was the most hotly contested category, with by far the most nominations, I am truly delighted for the team at the museum to reach the final – it is a huge achievement in itself.

“This is an absolutely deserved place for the Irish Museum of Time. It is an amazing overall tourism attraction. The Viking Triangle and the Waterford Treasures collection of museums really put Waterford on the map as a destination to visit and write about for our UK and overseas travel writer members, including those who don’t know Ireland or Waterford, all of which will secure invaluable future publicity.”
