Irish government measures to boost tourism in Ireland
Air travel tax abolished and VAT reduced as Tourism Ireland urges US vacationers to make the trip in 2011
Mr. Byrne continued “2011 is an especially exciting year for tourism on the island of Ireland. Not only do we have the fantastic state visits, but a number of other great events will also be taking place such as the centenary of the launch of Titanic in Belfast, the celebrations in Dublin marking its recent honoring as a UNESCO city of literature and, of course, the Solheim Cup at the Killeen Castle in Co Meath.”
Tourism is one of the largest indigenous industries in Ireland and nearly one million visitors travel every year from North America.
