TOURISM IRELAND

Tourism Ireland is responsible for marketing the island of Ireland overseas as a holiday and business tourism destination.

It was established as one of the “six areas of co-operation” under the framework of the Belfast Agreement of Good Friday 1998. Our remit is to increase tourism to the island of Ireland and to support Northern Ireland to realise its tourism potential.

We operate under the auspices of the North/South Ministerial Council through the Department for the Economy in Northern Ireland and the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport in Ireland. We work closely with the two tourist boards on the island, Fáilte Ireland and Tourism NI, and with our partners in the tourism industry at home and abroad in delivering on our remit.  Tourism Ireland’s up to 150 staff create world-class marketing programmes in 23 markets across the world as well as centrally in Dublin and Coleraine.
