Italian Travel Professionals Embark On Fact-Finding Trip To Ireland

A group of 15 travel professionals working with one of Italian tour operators Boscolo Tours has been enjoying a fact-finding visit around Ireland as guests of Tourism Ireland and Fáilte Ireland.


The aim of the visit was to enthuse the travel agents about Ireland's tourism offering and to highlight some of Ireland's top attractions and experiences. Their itinerary included Bunratty Castle & Folk Park, Galway city and the Cliffs of Moher, and they also explored St Canice's Cathedral, Clonmacnoise, Trinity College and the Guinness Storehouse.

Statement By Tourism Ireland's Manager Italy

Tourism Ireland's manager Italy, Marcella Ercolini, stated, "We were delighted to invite representatives of Boscolo Tours to visit Ireland. Their visit was a great opportunity to showcase our superb tourism offering. Seeing is believing - and 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 2022 and beyond.

 "We will be launching our new 'Green Button' campaign in Italy over the coming weeks, to re-start tourism and encourage Italian travellers to 'press the Green Button' and book Ireland for their next holiday. Our key message is that we cannot wait to roll out the green carpet and welcome back our Italian visitors."
