They were here as guests of Tourism Ireland and Fáilte Ireland.

 

The visiting group undertook an action-packed fact-finding visit, which included the Irish National Stud & Gardens, Huntington Castle, Kilkenny Castle, Powerscourt House & Gardens and the Guinness Storehouse.

 

Alison Metcalfe, Tourism Ireland’s Head of North America, said: “Tourism Ireland was delighted to invite Go Ahead Tours and these American alumni travel planners to visit Ireland. We believe it is extremely important for travel decision-makers such as these to experience for themselves the high standard of our tourism offering and the many things to see and do here for visiting groups.

 

“We have seen excellent growth in North American visitor numbers so far again this year, with the latest CSO figures for January to September 2017 showing growth of +18.6% – an extra 259,100 North American visitors compared with the same nine-month period last year. Tourism Ireland is rolling out a busy programme of promotions aimed at boosting late season travel to the island of Ireland and at positioning us well for 2018.”
