Influential Italian Travel Agents put Clonmacnoise on the Map

11 May 2009

A group of top Italian travel agents arrived in Ireland at the weekend, on a fact-finding visit.  One of the highlights of their stay was a guided tour of Clonmacnoise.  The group of influential travel agents was carefully selected by Tourism Ireland in Italy and brought here to experience at first-hand our wonderful landscape and visitor attractions.  

Niamh Kinsella, Tourism Ireland Italy, said: “We are delighted to welcome these travel agents to Clonmacnoise.  It is really important for influential agents like these to experience the exceptional beauty of this part of Ireland for themselves, so that they can spread the good news and sell more effectively when they return home and entice more Italian visitors to holiday here.”

“Right now in Italy, Tourism Ireland is pulling out all the stops to win business for this year and to keep the island of Ireland top of mind with the Italian consumer.  Our promotional activity is in full swing, highlighting that the island of Ireland is a great place to visit, is easily accessible and offers the consumer tremendous value for money.”

The travel agents’ visit was organised by Tourism Ireland in Italy, in conjunction with leading Italian tour operator Boscolo Tours and Fáilte Ireland.
