Great Britain is the largest market for tourism to the island of Ireland and we have seen excellent growth in British visitor numbers so far again this year, with todays CSO figures, for January to May, showing growth of almost +16% an extra 208,900 British visitors compared with the same five-month period in 2015. Tourism Ireland is undertaking an extensive programme of promotions in Britain throughout 2016, to ensure that this growth continues.
