MAHANA Lyon is one of a series of regional holiday promotions taking place in France in 2010, which attracts over 28,000 visitors each year, including leading travel media, tour operators and travel agents, as well as many thousands of potential French holidaymakers looking for ideas and suggestions for their next short break or holiday destination.
Tourism Ireland has a comprehensive promotional programme in place in France for 2010. A range of campaigns throughout 2010 are highlighting the great value on offer as well as compelling reasons to visit. The message in France is that there has never been a better time to visit the island of Ireland.
