Representatives of Spanish travel firm Special Tours visited Ireland this week as guests of Tourism Ireland and Fáilte Ireland.
The aim of the visit was to familiarise the travel agents with Ireland and its tourism offering. The group's itinerary included visits to Slane Castle, Slane Distillery, Newgrange and EPIC – The Irish Emigration Museum.
Tourism Ireland's manager for Spain Barbara Wood stated, "We were delighted to invite these Spanish travel agents to explore Ireland this week. Working with the travel trade is an important element of Tourism Ireland's promotional programme in Spain, so fact-finding visits for groups like this are really important. Our aim is that when they return home, they will be even more enthusiastic about the destination, helping to secure a greater share of their business for Ireland in 2020 and beyond."
