Ireland Voted 'Best Destination In The World' By Travel Magazine

Ireland has been voted best destination in the world, beating the likes of France, Germany and Italy, at the Group Leisure Awards 2016.

Discussing the award, Niall Gibbons, CEO of Tourism Ireland, said: "We are delighted that Ireland has been singled out for this accolade by the readers of Group Leisure magazine and influential group travel organisers around Britain. Travellers nowadays have tremendous choice, which makes it more important than ever for us to ensure the island of Ireland stands out from other destinations – so this award is good news indeed."

Rob Yandell of Group Leisure magazine publisher, added: "For Ireland to win Best International Destination represents a personal recommendation from group travel organizers."

Other winners at the awards included London for Best UK Destination, The View from the Shard for Best UK Attraction and Irish Ferries winning Best Ferry or Fixed Link Operator.
