World Travel Awards

I am a bit wary of the World Travel Awards which have many categories, European, Asian and other sections and a host of national awards. They appear to be a bit too commercial for my liking. Nevertheless I was surprised to discover that Ireland failed to win one single award in the 2011 European Competition. The best we could manage was a few Irish awards with Adare Manor, the K Club, the Ritz Carlton and the Dylan hotel all featuring. Turkey on the other hand mopped up a bucketfull of awards including one for the Best Tourism Authority. Maybe it would be worthwhile making a more determined  effort to win some of these awards in 2012. Many of the nominated hotels and resorts run on-line campaigns to garner votes and with a concerted effort Ireland could well feature on the next list. We could take advice ferom our good friends at the Cliffs of Moher. (See 'Corr's Corner')
