Just looking at Bord Faillte’s reports into the 4 countries from where we receive most visitors, and why they come here.
USA, UK, Germany & France.
In every case the main reason why people visit Ireland
#1: The Irish People (43% – 49%)
#2: The Irish Culture (33% – 39%)
and in 2 cases
#3: The Irish Pub (UK 23% and France 16%)
And why do people visit an Irish Pub??
The People & The Culture.
Says it all.
