Ireland Named Best Tourism Destination
Friday, February 15th, 2013 | By Taryn
Are you looking for the best tourism destination to travel to this year? Then look no further. Ireland has been named the best tourism destination in a survey of over 30,000 people from Global Traveler Magazine-the source for business and luxury readers.
A recent announcement of awards couldn’t have come at a better time, as Ireland
ramps up for The Gathering- a must see year long celebration of Irish festivals for people of Irish heritage and those that simply have an interest in Irish culture. From Ireland being named the best tourism destination to being one of the Top Places to Travel in 2013 by Fodor’s, Ireland has something for everyone.
Tourism Ireland’s Vice President of Marketing, Alison Metcalfe said, “We are delighted that Ireland has been singled out for this accolade by readers of Global Traveler. Tourism Ireland has had a very busy program of promotional activity right throughout 2012 and 2013, to build awareness of the island of Ireland as a premier vacation destination among American consumers.”
Beating out exotic locations like Australia, India, and South Africa, the Emerald Isle is truly the best tourism destination for 2013. Are you tempted to take a tour of Ireland yet?
