Leading travel agents from Dubai visited Glasson over Easter, as part of a fact-finding trip to Ireland. Invited here by Tourism Ireland, one of the highlights of their itinerary was a visit to Wineport Lodge.
Amanda Burns, Tourism Ireland’s manager Asia, said, “We were delighted to bring this group of travel agents to Glasson and Ireland. For many, it was their first time here and they were really impressed by our spectacular scenery, the variety, and wealth of cultural and heritage experiences on offer and, of course, by the hospitality and friendliness of the people they met. Fact-finding visits like this are extremely important as they help the travel agents to know exactly what we have to offer potential holidaymakers in Dubai; the aim is that when they return home they are familiar with this part of Ireland and the wonderful tourism product on offer here, and are better equipped to advise their clients on future travel plans and holiday bookings.”
Tourism Ireland is working hard to promote the island of Ireland in the Middle East as a premier holiday and business tourism destination.
