Twenty (20) Belgian travel agents have been exploring Ireland’s Ancient East and the Wild Atlantic Way this week – as guests of Tourism Ireland, Fáilte Ireland and Gallia, a leading Belgian tour operator.
The travel agents were here to experience at first-hand the wealth of things to see and do in Ireland for Belgian holidaymakers. Their action-packed itinerary included the Rock of Cashel, a walking tour of Cork, Derreen Gardens and Crag Cave.
Danielle Neyts, Tourism Ireland Belgium, said: “Tourism Ireland was delighted to invite this group of travel agents to come and discover Ireland’s Ancient East and the Wild Atlantic Way. There really is no substitute for being able to see what Ireland has to offer at first-hand; our aim is that when they return home, the travel agents will be even more enthusiastic about Ireland and better equipped to advise their clients when planning and booking their holidays. Tourism Ireland is rolling out a busy programme of promotions this autumn – aimed at boosting late-season travel to Ireland and to position us well for 2018.”
