Tourism Ireland invited a group of 17 top UK inbound tour operators on a fact-finding visit to Ireland, including a day out in County Sligo, this week.
The operators were attending the B2B workshop with Irish tourism enterprises in Dublin, but they took the opportunity to go around the country.
In Sligo the group visited Mullaghmore village and WB Yeats’ grave in Drumclffe, both places which were featured prominently in media coverage of Prince Charles’ and the Duchess of Cornwall’s visit to Ireland in May of this year.
The group were also treated to a fabulous lunch in the Yeats Tavern in Drumcliffe.
Although the tour operators are UK-based, they are responsible for organising holidays for holidaymakers from all over the world, not just Ireland’s biggest market, Britain.
