Sustainability Story for Spanish

A group of Spanish travel agents is visiting Ireland this week as guests of Tourism Ireland, Fáilte Ireland and Icárion (a major Spanish tour operator).

The aim of the trip is to showcase some of the many sustainable tourism experiences available in Ireland to the Spanish travel professionals, as well as to highlight our rich culture and heritage, spectacular scenery and fantastic food and drink offering.

During their time here, the travel agents will visit Dublin, Athlone, Offaly, Galway and Clare. Their itinerary includes Lough Boora Discovery Park, the Burren National Park, Cliffs of Moher and Airfield Estate.

They will also enjoy a Dublin Coastal Craft Beer and Seafood Tour with Hidden Howth Experiences, as well as a Galway Food Tour. In Co Clare, the travel agents will meet the founder and CEO of Fifty Shades Greener, Raquel Noboa, who will chat with them about sustainability in Ireland.

Susan Bolger, Tourism Ireland’s Manager Spain, said: 

“We are delighted to welcome this group of Spanish travel agents to Ireland. This visit is an excellent opportunity to showcase some of our sustainable tourism experiences, as well as our superb visitor attractions, food and scenery. Our aim is that the travel agents will be more enthusiastic than ever about the destination when they return home – helping to secure a greater share of their business for Ireland in 2023 and beyond.”
