The visiting group – all travel specialists in group tours and responsible for making the travel arrangements for a diverse range of large groups – was here on a fact-finding visit. Their action-packed itinerary took inDublin, Kildare, Carlow, Kilkenny, Waterford and Wicklow.

 

Siobhán McManamy, Tourism Ireland’s Director of Markets, said: “Tourism Ireland was delighted to invite these group tour organisers to visit Ireland’s Ancient East. We believe it is extremely important for decision-makers such as these to experience for themselves the high standard of our tourism offering and the many things to see and do in Ireland’s Ancient East, so they are better equipped to advise their clients on future travel plans.

 

More than 6.55 million people visited Ireland during the January to August period this year – an increase of +12%, or more than 700,000 extra overseas visitors when compared to the same eight-month period in 2015. We are determined to ensure that tourism growth continues. We have a really extensive autumn campaign in full swing right now – aimed at boosting late-season travel to Ireland from around the globe.”
