Support Ireland's Tourism & Hospitality Industry

Recent news

A message from Eoghan O’Mara Walsh, CEO of ITIC (Irish Tourism Industry Confederation, @irishtourism

Thank you very much for signing ITIC’s petition, which calls for urgent Government action to save Irish tourism.

Tourism is Ireland’s biggest indigenous industry.  Did you know that 1 in every 9 jobs is in tourism or hospitality?  That’s 265,000 jobs.  And we want the Government to take positive, constructive action to preserve not only those jobs, but the wider family of jobs that tourism supports too.

So if you have family and friends, neighbours and communities, businesses and other stakeholders, who benefit from tourism and from tourists – please encourage them to sign and share, to tell their stories of why #TourismMatters, and to show how deeply connected we all are with Irish tourism.

Our tourism community is not just the 265,000 employed directly – our impact is far wider than that.  Please help us to raise awareness of the need for urgent action – now.
