Tourism Ireland welcomes news that Dublin is voted ‘Best Weekend Destination in the World’ – by readers of Global Traveler magazine
Dublin has been named the ‘Best Weekend Destination in the World’ by the readers of a popular American travel magazine, Global Traveler, at its 11th annual Leisure Lifestyle Awards in Philadelphia.
In its annual survey, Global Traveler asked its readers to decide on their favourite destinations, attractions, hotels, airlines and cruise providers around the globe. The magazine has unveiled the results of its survey, including its list of global destinations which readers felt were the best weekend destination. Beating off stiff competition from other popular destinations – including Rome and Paris – Dublin was voted number one, for the second year in a row.
Welcoming the news, Siobhan McManamy, Interim Chief Executive of Tourism Ireland, said: “I am delighted that Dublin has been named the ‘Best Weekend Destination in the World’, in this year’s prestigious Global Traveler Leisure Lifestyle Awards. This accolade, as voted for by the readers of Global Traveler magazine, gives Tourism Ireland another great hook to continue to promote the island of Ireland in the US and elsewhere around the world as a ‘must see’ destination.”
