Irish Distilleries top 1m Visitors

Visitors to Irish whiskey distilleries exceeded 1 million for the first time last year.distillery1019
According to the Irish Whiskey Association, there was a 10.5 per cent increase in visitor numbers last year, from 923,000 to 1.02 million. Distilleries have seen a 54 per cent rise in visitor numbers over the past four years from just 653,00 in 2015.
Tourists from North America accounted for 34 per cent of all visitors last year, followed by Ireland, Britain, Germany and France.
 While the number of visitors from North America and Britain slipped last year, this was partly offset by a rise in visitors from Australia, Italy, and the Benelux and Nordic countries.
There are 17 visitor centres in operation currently with a number of new ones set to open this year, the Irish Whiskey Association said.
