Kildare Village Is ‘China Ready’
The ‘China Ready’ certificate was presented today (Friday, 23 February) by the Chinese Ambassador to Ireland, HE Dr Yue Xiaoyong, at an event in Kildare Village to mark Chinese New Year and to welcome the Year of the Dog. Kildare Village has implemented specialist training, to support front-line staff to better understand the needs of the Chinese tourist and to position the village as a ‘must visit’ destination on the itinerary of Chinese visitors to Ireland.

China is an important emerging travel market and one that Tourism Ireland is committed to growing over the coming years. The organisation has a strong network in China, with offices in Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou and Chengdu. In 2017, we welcomed an estimated 70,000 Chinese visitors to the island of Ireland.
