2018 marks a special year for the Abbey Group as they celebrate 40 years in business.
Abbey first began trading in 1978 and since those early days the company has evolved and grown to become one of the leading Destination Management Companies in Ireland and the UK.
The Group is dedicated to selling the destinations of Ireland and the UK to the worldwide travel trade on a B2B basis. It is a collection of specialist travel companies which includes Abbey Ireland & UK for leisure travel services, Moloney & Kelly for incentive and luxury travel requirements and Abbey Conference & Events for professional conference organisation and event management.
Annually the Group handles in excess of 200,000 clients and employs an experienced team of 160 travel professionals in Dublin, Edinburgh and London.
On this remarkable milestone, Co-Founder Brian Mc Colgan commented that “our 40 years in business has been a wonderful and satisfying journey. We love this industry and enjoy the work we do. Today Abbey is a recognised brand throughout the world of travel and tourism, we are proud to celebrate 40 years of successful trading”.
Chairman Jane Magnier, who has been with the company for 37 years also commented “it’s hard to believe we are celebrating 40 years in the tourism industry. The development and success of the Abbey Group is down to an experienced team of management and staff who work hard together to deliver a quality service to our travel trade partners in over 60 different countries”.
