Irish tourism companies – including Mountshannon-based Rural Irish Holidays – travelled to London last week, to join Tourism Ireland for the 2015 Telegraph Outdoor Adventure Travel & Bike Show.

The four-day event is the largest exhibition in Britain for adventure and outdoors enthusiasts, attracting around 55,000 visitors each year from London, the South East and elsewhere around Great Britain. It was an ideal opportunity to showcase Clare to one of Tourism Ireland’s key audiences – ‘great escapers’, who want to get away from the stress of a busy life and are interested in active experiences and exciting exploration of the countryside.

Vanessa Markey, Tourism Ireland’s head of Great Britain, said: “The Telegraph Outdoor Adventure Travel & Bike Show provided a wonderful platform for Tourism Ireland, and our industry partners, to showcase the superb outdoors and adventure experiences on offer right around the island of Ireland. It was also a really good opportunity for us to continue to highlight the Wild Atlantic Way and the Causeway Coastal Route, as well as the plethora of land and water-based activities like surfing, diving and hiking – helping to encourage more outdoor and adventure enthusiasts around Britain to consider the island of Ireland in 2015.”

Great Britain is Ireland’s largest tourism market and in 2014 we saw growth of +8% in visitor numbers from Britain, an additional 235,000 British visitors compared to 2013
