Drive for Tourism in Portugal

Tourism Ireland’s drive to grow golf visitor numbers from around the world continued at the International Golf Travel Market (IGTM) in Lisbon.

Twenty-one golf and tourism operators from the island of Ireland joined Tourism Ireland at this event for the global golf travel community, which brought together more than 1,300 golf travel professionals from around the world. The companies from Ireland have been engaging in four days of one-to-one, pre-scheduled appointments, as well as networking sessions.

Sinéad Murray, Tourism Ireland’s Acting Head of Business Partnership, said: 

“This is just one element of Tourism Ireland’s busy promotional programme to encourage more golfers from around the globe to consider a holiday on the island of Ireland. Our message is that the island of Ireland offers international golfers the complete package – with some of the very best golf in the world, spectacular scenery and the warmest of welcomes.”
