Tourism Ireland Increase in Overseas Visitors

Tourism Ireland welcomed a growth of 3.7 percent, over the 11 month period this year.

Almost 9.25 million overseas visitors have chosen Ireland during January to November, according to Niall Gibbons, CEO, Tourism Ireland.

“We have seen exceptional results from North America this year, almost two million visitors so far, up 16.6 percent on January to November this year. I also welcome the growth in visitor numbers from Australia and developing markets up 13.1 percent; and from mainland Europe up 5.5 percent, with important markets like Germany, France, Spain, Italy and the Nordic Region all recording strong growth. Increases in direct air access, plus our market diversification strategy, have been key factors,” added, Gibbons
