Fáilte Ireland CEO Shaun Quinn later briefed the Duchess of Cornwall as she sampled typical examples of local produce from along the Wild Atlantic Way at a special event at The House Hotel, Galway designed to highlight the close ties between Ireland and the UK’s tourism and food & drink sectors.
Shaun Quinn, Chief Executive, Fáilte Ireland said – “We were delighted to introduce the Duchess of Cornwall to some of the delights of the Wild Atlantic Way today. The coverage from this royal visit will provide a fantastic boost to the appeal of the Wild Atlantic Way in Britain – our largest overseas market. This event was a unique opportunity for HRH to not only experience Ireland’s breath-taking coastline but to literally get a taste for some of the sights, sounds and flavours the Wild Atlantic Way has to offer.
“British visitor numbers have grown by 14% this year already and we are confident that the exposure garnered by this visit will see these tourism figures continue to climb throughout the year.”
