Ireland Is ‘hot’ – according To International Luxury Travel Network

Published on : Tuesday, May 10, 2016

irelandAn international network of luxury travel agencies, Virtuoso, has revealed its list of “hottest” destinations for the upcoming 2016 summer travel season – and Ireland is at number six on the list.

The survey shows that European destinations are top of the bucket list for most upscale American and Canadian jetsetters this summer – with Italy, the UK, France, Spain and the Netherlands ahead of Ireland in the top ten. According to Virtuoso, data was sourced from its United States and Canadian-based travel agency members – whose turnover is $35 billion – and reflects future travel for June, July and August 2016.

Alison Metcalfe, Tourism Ireland’s Head of North America, said: “Virtuoso is one of the travel industry’s leading luxury networks, so the inclusion of Ireland at number six in this list is good news indeed. It’s another well-deserved accolade, which provides Tourism Ireland with a great hook to continue to promote the island of Ireland as a ‘must visit’ destination for American and Canadian travellers.

“2015 was another record-breaking year for Irish tourism from the United States and Canada; and the outlook for this year is also positive, with the most recent CSO figures for Q1 showing growth of +24.5% in visitors from North America. We are undertaking an extensive programme of promotions throughout 2016, to keep the momentum going and build on that growth.”
