    Fáilte Ireland showcases Ireland as a top golf destination to players in Northern Ireland to help drive growth in the face of Brexit.

    Golf tourism is a hugely lucrative sector for Ireland and a key driver of visitors.  Annually more than 221,000 overseas visitors play golf which contributes almost €300 million to the Irish economy and accounts for over 1.9 million bed nights.

    As part of Fáilte Ireland’s strategy to attract more players from Northern Ireland, the National Tourism Development Authority is showcasing some of Ireland’s finest golf courses at its annual ‘Golf Ireland Promotion Night’ in Belfast this week (Thursday 6th).

    Over 40 golf courses from across the Wild Atlantic Way, Ireland’s Ancient East, Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands and Dublin, are pitching directly to over 400 players, societies and clubs from across Northern Ireland. 

    Paul Mockler, Head of Commercial Development at Fáilte Ireland, said:

    “Golf is a critical component of our strategy to grow and retain visitors from the Northern Irish market especially in the face of Brexit.  By hosting events such as the ‘Golf Ireland Promotion Night’ Fáilte Ireland is offering golf courses throughout Ireland a high-profile sales platform where they can promote their quality courses directly to this attentive and lucrative market.”

    Mount Juliet Estate, as the host venue of the 2020 Dubai Duty Free Irish Open in May, is one of the courses attending the Golf Ireland Promotion Night.
