Now in its 16th year, Flavours of Ireland aims to grow our share of the huge worldwide travel market. Attended by UK inbound tour operators who bring business to Ireland and the UK from all over the world (including the US, Mainland Europe, Asa, Australasia and Africa), this event was an excellent opportunity for the participating tourism operators from Ireland to highlight and sell their product to these important decision-makers and to encourage them to feature the island of Ireland in their 2019 holiday and tour programmes.

 

Niall Gibbons, CEO of Tourism Ireland, said: “Tourism Ireland is delighted that so many tourism organisations from the island of Ireland and so many of the leading UK inbound tour operators took the time to join us at our ‘Flavours’ event again this year. We very much welcome the business and networking opportunities it presented. Our aim is to increase awareness of the island of Ireland among these hugely influential tour operators and to help Ireland and our tourism partners secure a greater share of the huge worldwide tourism market.”

 

Niall Gibbons continued: “Figures published by the CSO last week confirm that we welcomed over 7.2 million overseas visitors during the January to August period. This represents growth of almost 8% – or 520,600 additional visitors – on the same eight-month period in 2017. Tourism Ireland has a really extensive autumn campaign in full swing – aimed at boosting late-season travel to the island of Ireland from around the globe.”
