2016 was the best year ever for German visitor numbers to Ireland, with 650,000 German visitors contributing almost €400 million to the Irish economy. Tourism Ireland is undertaking an extensive programme of promotional activity once again throughout 2017, to build on that success.

 

Zoë Redmond, Tourism Ireland’s manager for Central Europe, said: “Tourism Ireland was delighted to support Heinz and his group on their journey through Ireland’s Ancient East. It’s a really effective way of engaging with his German followers, sparking their curiosity about Ireland. The group has been really impressed by our spectacular scenery, the range of things to see and do, as well as by the friendliness of the people they met. I am confident that Heinz’s visit will result in lots of positive publicity for Tipperary and Ireland’s Ancient East.”
