Kicking off an extensive programme of St Patrick’s Day promotional activity around the world, Tourism Ireland co-sponsored a special reception in the House of Commons in London today. The event, celebrating British-Irish relations, was attended by members of the House of Commons and House of Lords, as well as leaders of the Irish community living in London, influential travel trade, business tourism and media contacts.
Today’s event in the House of Commons is part of Tourism Ireland’s St Patrick’s 2022 programme of activity – which spans Great Britain, Mainland Europe, North America, Australia and New Zealand, as well as emerging tourism markets like the Middle East.
This year, as we restart overseas tourism to Ireland, Tourism Ireland’s St Patrick’s Day programme around the world is arguably more important than ever before. Following a devastating two years for the tourism and travel sector, Tourism Ireland aims to capitalise on the heightened exposure for Ireland around our national day. Tourism Ireland’s message is that Ireland is open for business again and we cannot wait to welcome back our Diaspora and international visitors.
