Tourism Ireland invited the staff of a leading tour operator and travel agency from Finland, Kon-Tiki Tours, to visit Ireland recently, with a special focus on the south east region.

The aim of their visit was to showcase some of Ireland’s Ancient East, including Brú na Bóinne and Monasterboice, to Kon-Tiki staff members, so that when they return home they will be better equipped to advise their clients about holidays here.

Aileen Hickey, Tourism Ireland’s manager for the Nordic Region, said: “Tourism Ireland was delighted to invite the Kon-Tiki Tours team to come and discover some of our newest visitor experience, Ireland’s Ancient East. There really is no substitute for being able to experience what Ireland has to offer at first-hand; our aim is that when they return home, the Kon-Tiki Tours team will be even more enthusiastic about the destination, helping to secure a greater share of their business for Ireland.”
