Ballynahinch Castle Hotel was among ten Irish tourism companies to attend a top French luxury travel event on a riverboat in central Paris.

The networking event organised by Tourism Ireland was also attended by 34 French luxury travel buyers who met and did business with the Irish companies.

The event involved a workshop of one-to-one meetings, a presentation, as well as networking – providing an excellent opportunity for the tourism companies from Ireland to promote their luxury products and services.

Guests also enjoyed the best of food from Ireland, as well as performances by the Nova Quartet and Winnie Ama.

Monica MacLaverty, Tourism Ireland’s Manager Southern Europe, said: “Our networking event was an excellent opportunity to highlight our luxury tourism offering – from our boutique hotels, castles, luxury resorts and spas, to our rich culture and heritage, and not forgetting our world-class golf.

“Events like this provide a valuable opportunity for Tourism Ireland and our partners to meet, and network with, influential luxury travel buyers, helping to secure a greater share of their business for the island of Ireland in 2023 and beyond.”
