Irish Pubs Global Gathering Event 2015

Icons are a powerful way of attracting visitors to a destination, and most destinations consider themselves lucky to have a few motivating icons. Ireland is very fortunate in having seven thousand powerful icons in the shape of our Irish Pub: our research still shows that visiting an Irish pub is one of the most appealing experiences for visitors to Ireland. The Irish Pub Global Network gives us a real opportunity to use the six thousand authentic Irish pubs overseas to showcase our culture, food and drink to attract additional visitors to the island of Ireland
