New Tourism Ireland site launched

The Embassy of Ireland in Japan is delighted to announce the launch of a new tourism website aimed at attracting more Japanese tourists to Ireland.

The site will be a one-stop-shop for anyone considering a visit to Ireland. As well as exhibiting the stunning Irish scenery and providing tips and information for tourists, the website also has a number of useful guides about the wide range of activities and interests on offer. The site also features major newly established tourism itineraries, such as the Wild Atlantic Way, a hugely popular coastal route along Ireland’s west coast.

The Minister for the Diaspora and International Development, Mr. Joe McHugh TD, along with the CEO of Tourism Ireland, Mr. Niall Gibbons, launched the new Tourism Ireland Japanese language website in Dublin on 29 August.

The Ambassador of Japan to Ireland, H.E. Mari Miyoshi, and the Ambassador of Ireland to Japan, H.E. Anne Barrington, were also in attendance.

Welcoming the development of the new Japanese language website, Minister McHugh said:
“The new Tourism Ireland Japanese Language website has been designed to help build greater awareness of Ireland in Japan. In addition to enhancing the overall visibility of Ireland there, it will contribute to a strengthening and deepening of our bilateral relations. In this regard, the launch of the website is very timely as 2017 marks the 60th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Ireland and Japan.”

Also commenting on the new site, Ambassador of Ireland, Anne Barrington added:
“Ireland and Japan have many thriving cultural and economic links, I am convinced that this will encourage more and more Japanese people to consider visiting Ireland. I am particularly delighted that this launch coincides with our preparation for celebrating 60 years of diplomatic ties with Japan next year”.
