With 69% of today’s travellers looking for experiences that take them beyond the well-travelled tourist track, Trafalgar is featuring some interesting options in Ireland that celebrate how tourism can be a force for good and support local communities.
Trafalgar’s Global CEO, Gavin Tollman observes, “The tourism sector has immense opportunity and power to stimulate economic activity, which delivers jobs, sense of purpose and participation. By encouraging dispersal and year-round travel, this helps communities outside of the main centres — sites of cultural significance and history — to remain thriving.”
Tollman continues, “We pride ourselves on offering unique opportunities for clients to connect with the real Ireland and they love that when they travel with us, they can see the tangible impact their visits are making in lesser-known destinations while enjoying the richest possible travel experience.”
With 14 unique itineraries and counting, Ireland continues to be one of the brand’s most popular destinations with Canadian guests returning time and time again.
While the wild landscapes, energetic cities, characters and plenty of craic fulfill plenty of Irish travel dreams, it’s the brand’s inclusion of alternative destinations and experiences that offer a different travel experience.
Trafalgar is constantly seeking out new, immersive experiences that encourage tourism dispersal that benefits local communities.
One such example is the new 10-day Shamrocks and Leprechauns family trip launching in April. With experiences like learning from Ireland?s last remaining Leprechaun Whisperer and a hands-on Atlantic sheepdog Be My Guest farm experiences on the list, clients immerse in different side of Ireland.
