 ‘Meet in Ireland’ is the official MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences and events) brand for the island of Ireland, which comprises three tourism authorities, Fáilte Ireland, Tourism Ireland and Tourism Northern Ireland, who work in partnership to promote the island of Ireland as a leading conference and meeting destination.
The Irish delegation met, and did business with, 24 senior representatives of companies from the Stuttgart region who are responsible for organising international conferences, meetings and large-scale incentive events around the world for their clients.
Zoë Redmond, Tourism Ireland’s manager for Central Europe, said: “We are delighted that these influential German business tourism buyers have taken the time to meet with our Irish tourism partners in Stuttgart, to hear about the superb facilities on offer right around the island of Ireland. Business tourism is an important, high yield sector and Tourism Ireland has a busy programme of promotional activity in place to grow this type of tourism in 2016.

It's Bloomsday


Only the Irish could celebrate a day that only occured in the imagination of a creative writer, but Bloomsday, which we mark to-day, endures as a semi-official holidY. while the majority of the population will tune into Euro 2016, small gatherings of blazered and boatered senior citizens will be downing pints in Dublin and its environs, chewing on offal and listening to extracts from a book that few of them have read. Its all good fun however for locals and visitors, with selected pubs enjoying bumper sales and an air of jollity evident around the city. Long may it last. The Irish Embassy in Denmark, together with Tourism Ireland and Tullamore D.E.W., hosted a special pre-Bloomsday event – to mark the 80th anniversary of Joyce’s visit to Copenhagen, in September 1936. The event, which took place in Copenhagen’s Tivoli Gardens, was attended by influential Danish media, as well as by members of the Danish James Joyce Society. It included readings from Ulysses in both Danish and English, providing a good platform to highlight the island of Ireland to our ‘culturally curious’ audience. Pictuured are Aileen Hickey, Tourism Ireland; Jesper Kjær, representing Tullamore D.E.W.; HE Cliona Manahan, Irish Ambassador to Denmark; Morten Barndorff Simonsen, representing Tullamore D.E.W; Karen Dermody and Deirdre Quinn, both Tourism Ireland.
