Ireland – Best Destination in Europe.
At the 18th annual Travel Weekly Readers Choice Awards in New York, Ireland has won a major travel award, the “best destination in Europe” – for the seventh year in a row. Ireland has won this award every year since 2014, which highlights the fact that the island of Ireland stands out from other destinations as a great choice for a vacation.
Ireland took the number one spot in the “best destination in Europe” category – beating off tough competition from England, France, Greece, Italy and Spain.
Welcoming news of the award, Niall Gibbons, Chief Executive of Tourism Ireland, said “they were delighted that Ireland has been singled out for the seventh year in a row. At the end of what has been a devastating year for travel and tourism, this accolade is some positive news. Our thoughts are with all those people engaged in hospitality at this time. While we face immense uncertainty right now, hope is on the horizon in the form of vaccines. We look forward to a more positive and prosperous year in 2021 and accolades like this really help keep Ireland in the limelight for the right reasons.”
