Travel from the UAE to Ireland has witnessed strong growth from 1st January till 30th June this year.

Compared to the same period (H1) in 2018, UAE locals and residents have been visiting Ireland in greater numbers now, attracted by its diverse landscape full of lush greenery and immense natural beauty

Sales of trips and accommodation to Ireland increased almost two-fold during Eid Al Fitr alone, compared to last year. Online searches for holidays to Ireland have seen a 675% increase in the first six months of this year. The most preferred destination for travelers from the UAE was to Dublin, followed by the cosmopolitan city of Cork.

To quote Antonio Fellino, Vice President of Retail and ecommerce for dnata Travel UAE, “Trips to Ireland with dnata Travel offer UAE travellers unique opportunities including the chance to stay in a grand castle, or a small cottage at the heart of a colorful local village, or to explore rugged, scenic landscapes that follow in the footsteps of their favorite Game of Thrones characters. Earlier this year we brought a mini-Ireland to life in the dnata Travel store in The Dubai Mall equipped with its own castle and a wind dome full of prizes to be caught, and the response was fantastic.”

Niall Gibbons, the CEO of Tourism Ireland said, “The island of Ireland has much to offer to the residents of the UAE, be it adventure, scenic landscapes, or unique experiences, all of which contribute to the rise in visitor figures from this market year on year. Through increased exposure to residents of the UAE, we hope to welcome more guests to explore the island of Ireland and appreciate its rich culture, the friendliness of the people and varied attractions.”
