Ireland Voted Best International Destination in the World

Ireland has triumphed at this year’s Group Leisure Awards in Britain, after being voted by thousands of readers of ‘Group Leisure’ magazine.

Above, Stuart Prosser, Jet2.com, and presenters Anton Du Beke and Erin Boag of Strictly Come Dancing, present the award for Best International Destination to Cormac Ó Suilleabháin and Judith Cassidy, Tourism Ireland.

Beating off stiff competition from the likes of France, Germany, Italy and India to claim the title, the award was presented to representatives of Tourism Ireland at the Group Leisure Awards ceremony, which took place in Birmingham.

The annual awards recognise the best destinations, attractions, and providers for the group travel industry – as voted for by active travel organisers from sports and social clubs, retired associations, special interest societies and other groups.

Niall Gibbons, Chief Executive, Tourism Ireland, said: “We are delighted that Ireland has been singled out for this accolade by the readers of Group Leisure magazine and influential group travel organisers around Britain. Travellers nowadays have tremendous choice, which makes it more important than ever for us to ensure the island of Ireland stands out from other destinations – so this award is good news indeed.”

Rob Yandell, Group Leisure magazine publisher, added: “For Ireland to win Best International Destination represents a personal recommendation from group travel organisers.”
