Representatives from B&B Ireland travelled to France last month, to check out the French B&B product. A return delegation from CléVacances has been visiting Ireland this week, to experience the Irish B&B offering at first-hand. They stayed in various B&Bs in counties Fermanagh, Donegal and Dublin. During their visit to Ireland, the CléVacances group attended an event hosted by Tourism Ireland – where they heard about the organisation’s extensive programme of promotions in France to grow visitor numbers this year.

 

France is one of our top four tourism markets, delivering about 505,000 visitors to Ireland last year (+11% growth on 2014).

 

Finola O’Mahony, Tourism Ireland’s Head of Europe, said: 2015 was the third consecutive record-breaking year for French visitors to Ireland and we have seen excellent growth in French visitor numbers so far again this year, with the latest CSO figures indicating growth of +12% for the first quarter of 2016. Tourism Ireland is determined to ensure that growth continues and we are rolling out a busy programme of promotions in France this year.”
