Ireland – In a Class of its Own

Ireland is one of the best destinations for meetings, conferences, corporate events and incentive travel in the world. The country’s temperate climate, high standards for conference facilities, tasteful and comfortable accommodations, and options for leisure and after-hours activities put it in a class of its own.

Professional, Friendly People
Ireland is traditionally known as a land of saints and scholars, where visitors receive many warm welcomes from the friendly locals. The famed friendliness of the Irish is also found in the hospitality and retail industries or if you’re simply looking for directions on the side of the road.

Easy to Get Access
Ireland is easy to access from airports worldwide. Located on the western edge of Europe, daily flights to many North American airports means Ireland is geographically the closest European Union state to the U.S. and Canada. By air, the rest of Europe is on its doorstep within one to three hours. Ferry services from France and the U.K. make this island accessible by car and train from anywhere in Europe.

Stunning Locations
An island of diverse regions, the scenery along the length and breadth of Ireland is as beautiful as it is varied. The coast of Ireland boasts a mix of stunning beaches and rugged cliffs. The landscape varies drastically from rich agricultural land to the karst landscape of the Burren, with scenic rivers, lakes and mountain ranges in between. Ireland is also home to UNESCO World Heritage sites.
