Tourism Ireland and the island’s tourism industry would like to thank you for your ongoing support over the past year. We very much value your business and we look forward to working with you to rebuild it in the months and years ahead.
We will be thrilled to welcome you and your clients back to the island of Ireland soon and want to reassure you that a great deal of work has been undertaken to ensure a safe and enjoyable holiday experience and you can rest assured that the island’s famously warm welcome hasn’t changed one bit!
In the Republic of Ireland, the Covid-19 Safety Charter has been designed to reassure visitors that government approved hygiene and safety procedures are in place. Tourism Ireland has also welcomed the approval in the Republic of Ireland of a new ‘traffic-light’ system for travel by the EU, which is an important step on the road to re-starting overseas travel.
Meanwhile in Northern Ireland, the tourism and hospitality industry has adopted the "Good to Go" policy which presents certified evidence that a business has adhered to government guidelines and is safe to open. For our clients and customers in GB, travel into Northern Ireland will be permitted in line with UK Government guidelines.
Latest research indicates that appetite for travel in GB remains strong with holidaymakers already planning and dreaming about their next break. We also know that the island of Ireland is a destination that holidaymakers in GB feel comfortable with and one that will remain easily accessible thanks to the great sea and air access available and the Common Travel Area agreement ensuring that travel will remain a straightforward and simple process.
The island of Ireland is also very well positioned to cater to the latest trends and experiences consumers are currently looking for – the island is a natural playground, blessed with wide open spaces, stunningly beautiful landscapes and a fantastic outdoors offering.
We look forward to inspiring you and your clients with the rugged, untouched beauty of the Wild Atlantic Way, the intriguing history of Ireland’s Ancient East, the natural splendour of Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands, the vibrant culture in and around Dublin and all of the giant experiences on offer across Northern Ireland.
We look forward to seeing you and your clients on the island of Ireland very soon.
