UK group latest to view Clare

A group from the UK are the latest inbound tour operators to visit Clare and the West of Ireland in order to help grow Ireland’s share of the huge, worldwide tourism market.

One of the highlights of the tour operator’s time here was a visit to the Cliffs of Moher.

Jim Paul, Tourism Ireland’s head of Australia and developing markets, said, “The majority of our overseas visitors come from the core markets of Great Britain, North America and mainland Europe, and while this will continue, it is important that we expand our focus beyond these markets and look to the long-term opportunities presented by ‘new’ tourism markets, which we believe will play an increasing role in the future of the travel and tourism industry. It is therefore crucial that influential operators working in these markets get to experience Clare and Ireland, and the high standard of our tourism offering, at first-hand.”
