Travel agents from Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, and Auckland visited Northern Ireland last week after winning the opportunity to travel there during a recent Tourism Ireland sales mission to Australia and New Zealand.
Following an itinerary devised by Tourism NI, the group spent time in Belfast, where they embarked on a Black Taxi tour and visited the Ulster Museum and Titanic Belfast. They also travelled along the Causeway Coastal Route, stopping off at The Gobbins, Ballintoy and the Giant’s Causeway before arriving in Derry for a walking tour of the city. This was followed by a trip to Fermanagh.
"Delighted" To Showcase Northern Ireland
Tourism Ireland’s manager Australia Sofia Hansson commented, "We are delighted to have the opportunity to showcase Northern Ireland to these travel agents from Australia and New Zealand. There is really no substitute for being able to come here and experience what Northern Ireland has to offer at first-hand. Our aim is that when these travel agents return home, they will be better informed and really enthusiastic about the destination, which will in turn help to secure a greater share of their business for Northern Ireland."
