Tourism Ireland has a strong promotional programme in place in the Netherlands in 2010, highlighting the island of Ireland as a fantastic holiday destination. Tourism Ireland is placing significant emphasis on value for money, to drive home to Dutch consumers the message about the superb range of offers available around the island of Ireland.
