Our tourists happiest
IRELAND has been voted the destination with the highest client satisfaction by travel operators and their customers in the US.
The country beat off strong competition in the same category from other destinations like Britain, Spain, Italy and France in the prestigious WAVE awards, organised by TravelAge West magazine.
Joe Byrne, of Tourism Ireland, accepted the award noting that the satisfaction with Ireland was its highest for many years -- with the highest from North American visitors, 90pc of whom would recommend Ireland for a holiday.
"We are delighted that Ireland has been singled out for this award by TravelAge West," he said. "Tourism Ireland works closely with the travel trade across the US."
