Detailed reports on the economic benefit from the two-week Gaelic culture and music festival are due later in the year, but festival chiefs have estimated it brought in an extra £2.5 million to the town.
And there's optimism that Paisley's simultaneous hosting of the Royal National Mòd and The Spree, Scotland's national arts festival, will deliver a lasting cultural and economic legacy for the town.
The celebration of Gaelic music and culture ran alongside dozens of top music and comedy shows, plus a packed programme of kids' activities, workshops and exhibitions.
Venues used included Paisley's magnificent medieval Abbey, the recently refurbished Town Hall and Paisley Arts Centre, alongside the canvas, wood and glass Spiegeltent, in County Square.
Renfrewshire Council leader Mark Macmillan said: "This unique combination of Scotland's oldest and newest cultural festivals has given a great boost to the town's image and to local business.
"I'd like to thank everyone involved in making the Mòd and Spree such a special experience for Paisley and the thousands of people who came here.
"There was a real festival feel in the town and that was picked up on by our visitors and the people of Renfrewshire themselves.
Ealasaid MacDonald, Convener of Mòd Phàislig, said: "We've had a fantastic Mòd in Paisley this year, one which will live long in the memory for everyone involved.
"There was great support from sponsors, volunteers, business and the community and that really showed in the quality of the organisation and the warmth of the welcome.
"All of us who were involved also look forward to the cultural legacy which the Mòd can leave. This can inspire more people, young and old, to get involved in the rich culture and heritage which the Mòd celebrates"
Tom Johnston, President of Renfrewshire Chamber of Commerce, said: "There's been a lot of activity in and around Paisley, and it's been particularly encouraging to hear so many positive comments about Paisley."
