Ireland Showcased In Spain

Ireland was promoted to more than 50 Spanish tour operators, travel agents and airline representatives, as well as to influential travel journalists, at Tourism Ireland's "Una Velada Irlandesa" (meaning "An Irish Evening") events in Madrid and Barcelona last week.


Eight tourism companies from Ireland took part in the "Una Velada Irlandesa" events, promoting and selling their products and services to the Spanish travel professionals in attendance. The events also provided an opportunity to highlight what's new and exciting around Ireland to the Spanish travel journalists in attendance. Tourism Ireland's message was that Ireland is open for business again and it cannot wait to welcome back Spanish visitors.

Statement By Tourism Ireland Acting Chief Executive

Tourism Ireland acting chief executive Siobhan McManamy stated, "We're really pleased that so many key Spanish travel professionals and journalists took the time to come and meet with our partners from Ireland in Madrid and Barcelona this week. Our 'Una Velada Irlandesa' events provided a really valuable opportunity for our partners to showcase their product and connect with the influential Spanish travel professionals. The aim was to highlight the many things to see and do, and all that is new and exciting, on a holiday in Ireland in 2022."
