Initiative aims to showcase the best of the island to GCC travellers
Online travel marketplace Wego and Tourism Ireland have partnered on a campaign to encourage GCC travellers to visit the Emerald Isle.
With Eid holidays coming up, the two entities are bringing the best of the island of Ireland to GCC travellers, offering them a glimpse of Ireland’s wonderful city breaks and the wide range of tourist attractions in Dublin including art galleries, museums, castles and the food scene.
Speaking about the campaign, Mamoun Hmedan, Wego’s MENA and India chief commercial officer and managing director, said: “We are excited to partner with Tourism Ireland to promote yet another marvellous country to our users. Wego is seeing a great demand for this country with marvellous city escapes for all types of travellers. We are seeing positive signs of recovery for tourism and, through these collaborations, we aim to encourage people to travel more in the new norm.”
Ireland recently relaxed its Covid-related entry regulations and announced that travellers don’t need to present a negative PCR test if they are fully vaccinated.
Tourism Ireland manager Middle East & Asia Aisling McDermott said: “We are delighted to partner with Wego to showcase the exciting array of things to see and do for visitors from the Middle East to our beautiful island. From vibrant cities to luxury castle stays, Ireland has something for all visitors whether travelling alone, with friends or with family. Our messages are clear: book your holiday to Ireland now where a warm welcome and unforgettable stay is waiting for you.”
The campaign also aims to highlight a range of attractions found across the island with a list of 10 Instagrammable places: the Cliffs of Moher, Killarney, Connemara, Howth, the Wild Atlantic Way, Dingle, Giant’s Causeway, Glendalough, Phoenix Park and Titanic Belfast.
Wego is working with leading tourism boards across the world to boost tourism recovery and help travellers select the best destinations for their next holiday.
