Ireland has beaten off stiff competition to be crowned ‘Best European Destination’ at the Group Travel Awards in London.
We topped the list ahead of some great destinations including Prague, Germany, Belgium, Cyprus and Switzerland.
So if you’re wondering where to head off on your next weekend break, a staycation might actually be your best bet.
It’s the third year in a row that Ireland has taken the title at the annual ceremony that celebrates and recognises the best destinations, events, accommodation, transport providers and attractions for the British group travel industry.
Julie Wakley, Tourism Ireland’s Head of Great Britain, said, “We are delighted that Ireland has been voted ‘Best European Destination’ once again at the Group Travel Awards and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all the group travel organisers who voted for us.
“Travellers nowadays have tremendous choice, which makes it more important than ever for us to ensure the island of Ireland stands out from other destinations – so this award is good news indeed, reminding group organisers around Britain that Ireland is the ideal choice.”
