Sustainable Travel International

Guinness Storehouse


Ireland’s number one visitor attraction, Guinness Storehouse, was the first Irish business to be awarded the STEP tourism certification. Though the general building was erected at the beginning of the twentieth century, the Guinness Storehouse has only been a tourist exhibit since 2000. Guinness Storehouse came to Sustainable Travel International because of its international reputation for sustainable tourism planning and development and is looking forward to continuing its path towards stronger corporate social responsibility.
