Ireland included in travel guide's 'Go List' of events

Tourism Ireland has welcomed the announcement that Ireland's been featured on the 2013 Fodor's travel guide's 'Go List' of events.

The Government body in charge of bringing in visitors says it could not have come at a better time, with The Gathering taking place here next year.

Fodor's Travel has tapped into that, highlighting that Ireland will host events, festivals, and reunions in honour of the more than 70 million people worldwide who claim Irish heritage.

Niall Gibbons, chief executive of Tourism Ireland, said: “This accolade couldn’t have come at a better time as we get ready to kick off our year-long celebration of all things Irish, with The Gathering Ireland 2013.

The high profile listing in Fodor’s Travel ‘Go List’ of the top 25 places to visit in 2013 provides Tourism Ireland with yet another opportunity to promote Ireland as a ‘must see’ destination in our promotional activities across the world.

“We intend to fully capitalise on the opportunities this accolade presents throughout 2013 and beyond.”
