The tour operators, from Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Norway, are taking part in a fact-finding visit – to encourage them to include Ireland’s Ancient East as a new destination in their programmes or to expand the Ireland content of their existing programmes.

 

Their packed schedule includes Powerscourt House and Gardens in Enniskerry, the John F Kennedy Arboretum and Dunbrody Famine Ship in New Ross, Waterford’s Museum of Treasures and Waterford Crystal, Smithwick’s Experience Kilkenny, Irish National Stud and Japanese Gardens in Kildare and the Brú na Bóinne Visitor Centre.

 

Aileen Hickey, Tourism Ireland’s Manager for the Nordic Region, said: “Tourism Ireland was delighted to invite these influential tour operators to visit Ireland’s Ancient East. Fact-finding visits like this are an important element of our overall promotional programme, providing an excellent opportunity to showcase the many things to see and do in Ireland’s Ancient East – and elsewhere on the island of Ireland – to key travel decision-makers.

 

“2016 looks set to be another good year for Irish tourism from the Nordic countries, with the latest CSO figures showing visitor numbers up +24% for the first quarter – or more than 9,000 extra visitors compared with the same three-month period of 2015.”
