Ireland Voted ‘Best European Destination’ for Groups
Ireland has triumphed at The Group Travel Awards in Britain and has been voted Best European Destination.
Beating off stiff competition from places like Prague, Belgium, Cyprus, Switzerland and runner-up Germany, the Emerald Isle claimed the title for the third year in a row. The award was presented to representatives of Tourism Ireland at the awards ceremony in London.
The annual awards celebrate and recognise the best destinations, events, accommodation, transport providers and attractions for the British group travel industry. This is as voted for by readers of GTO (Group Travel Organiser) magazine.
Julie Wakley, Tourism Ireland’s Head of Great Britain, said in a statement: “We are delighted that Ireland has been voted ‘Best European Destination’ once again. We would like to thank all the group travel organisers who voted for us.
“Travellers nowadays have tremendous choice. This makes it more important than ever to ensure Ireland stands out from other destinations. So this award is good news indeed. It reminds group organisers around Britain that Ireland is the ideal choice.”
