French on Tour

A group of French tour operators and travel agents has been exploring Ireland as guests of Tourism Ireland and Fáilte Ireland.

The group’s itinerary included the Irish National Stud & Gardens, the new International Rugby Experience in Limerick, Cliffs of Moher, Doolin Music House, the Burren Smokehouse, a food tour of Galway city, Athlone Castle, Windmill Lane Recording Studios, Airfield Estate and Trinity College.

Monica MacLaverty, Tourism Ireland’s Manager Southern Europe, said: 

“Working with the travel trade is an important element of Tourism Ireland’s promotional activity in France, so fact-finding visits for groups like this are really important. Seeing is believing – and our aim is that when they return home, they will be even more enthusiastic about the destination, helping to secure a greater share of their business for Ireland in 2024 and beyond.”
