Brexit opens Irish tourism to a wider world

The threat that Britain leaving the EU poses to the Irish tourist market is real - recent research undertaken by Tourism Ireland confirms a heightened risk of consumers postponing holidays due to the ongoing uncertainty over Brexit.

So, looking wider to a global tourism market has never been so important for Irish tourist interests. That’s why Tourism Ireland brought an 80-strong delegation - Ireland’s largest ever presence at the event - to the World Travel Market event in London.

Minister of State for Tourism and Sport Brendan Griffin also attended the tourism event in London.
