Leading Finnish Travel Professionals Explore Ireland's Ancient East And Wild Atlantic Way
Seven leading tour operators and travel agents from Finland have been taking part in a fact-finding visit around Ireland over the weekend, as guests of Tourism Ireland and Fáilte Ireland.
The group flew to Dublin from Helsinki with Norwegian Airlines, and the aim of the visit was to showcase Ireland’s Ancient East and Wild Atlantic Way, as well as encouraging Finnish travel professionals to extend the Ireland content of their programmes.
Their itinerary included the Irish National Stud and Japanese Gardens in Kildare; Muckross House and Gardens in Kerry; King John’s Castle in Limerick; as well as a guided tour of Cork city.
Aileen Hickey, Tourism Ireland’s manager for the Nordic region, said: “Tourism Ireland was delighted to invite this group of Finnish tour operators and travel agents to visit Ireland. Fact-finding visits like this are an important part of our annual programme of promotions in the Nordic Region, to increase awareness of Ireland among influential travel professionals and help secure a greater share of their business.”
