Middle Eastern Travel Agents Explore Island Of Ireland

Four luxury travel buyers from the Middle East are exploring the island of Ireland this week - as guests of Tourism Ireland, Fáilte Ireland and Tourism NI.


The travel professionals - all specialists in luxury travel - design unique, luxury travel itineraries for their high net-worth Emiratis and Middle Eastern clients. The aim of the visit is to familiarise them with the island of Ireland and its luxury tourism offering, so that when they return home, they will be better informed and more enthusiastic than ever about Ireland when advising their clients about planning and booking their holidays on the island.

The group's itinerary included the Game of Thrones Studio Tour, Hillsborough Castle, the Guinness Storehouse, Mount Juliet, Cashel Palace Hotel, Jameson Distillery Midleton and the Curragh Racecourse.

Statement By Tourism Ireland's Manager Middle East & Asia

Aisling McDermott, Tourism Ireland's manager Middle East & Asia, said, "Tourism Ireland was delighted to invite this group of luxury travel buyers to visit the island of Ireland, to experience at first-hand some of our luxury tourism offering, including our boutique hotels and luxury resorts. 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 the island of Ireland in 2023 and beyond."
