The Guinness Storehouse, Ireland’s most popular international visitor attraction, has opened its doors to a global virtual audience as one of the country’s first businesses to use Google’s Business View.
The free 360? interactive tour allows users to virtually travel across all seven floors of its 159,219 square foot building, including its top-floor Gravity Bar, the highest bar in Dublin city, live from their laptops, iPads, and other digital devices.
The technology allows the Guinness Storehouse to extend its reach beyond the 1,269,371 guests that passed through the doors in 2014 to a global audience, whether they are able to travel to Dublin in person or not.
Paul Carty, managing director of the Guinness Storehouse commented, “The Guinness Storehouse is a truly unique tourism product and we are proud to be one of the first in Ireland to offer Google Business View. A picture is worth a thousand words, and now with Google Business View people will have the ability to search online and walk through the doors of the Guinness Storehouse. Last year we welcomed over 1.26 million people to the Guinness Storehouse and with this state-of-the-art technology we can bring the experience to life with 360-degree panoramic imaging to a global audience.”
