Ireland Named World's Fourth Best Country For Travel Experiences

A new ranking by TripAdvisor has named Ireland as the fourth best country in the world for “travel experiences”.

As reported by The Irish Independent, the list features the planet’s ten best destinations for “local tours, activities and experiences”, according to calculations based on a combination of average destination ratings and reviews for bookable experiences on the TripAdvisor website.

"A Top Destination"

Commenting on Ireland’s inclusion on the list, TripAdvisor spokesperson Hayley Coleman said, “Ireland’s ranking among countries like Costa Rica and New Zealand firmly cements the country, with its magnificent outdoors and vibrant culture, as a top destination for travel experiences.”

Meanwhile, Tourism Ireland CEO Niall Gibbons stated, “The findings are based on travellers’ own experiences on holidays here, so the inclusion of Ireland in this list is particularly good news – helping to give us ‘stand-out’ in a very competitive international marketplace.”
