Around a dozen Galician incoming companies took part in a workshop with more than thirty Irish outbound companies to present the varied tourism offer of our region.
Dublin, 9 February 2023. Dublin has been the first destination chosen by the Galicia Tourism Cluster to start the internationalisation activities of Destination Galicia in 2023. A delegation made up of 7 incoming companies headed by the Cluster’s president, Cesáreo Pardal, and the treasurer of the entity, Alfonso Martínez, held a working meeting with more than thirty Irish companies to present the wide variety of Galicia’s tourism offer and increase the flow of visitors between both territories.
Representatives of the companies Galiwonders, Rutas Meigas, Interrías, Pilgrim Travel, ArtNatura Galicia, Vioviajes y Always Spain Incoming travelled to the Irish capital, where they had the opportunity to maintain direct contact with Irish emitters to explain the thousand experiences offered by our region, a destination that brings together many of the types of tourism preferred by the majority of travellers.
The president of the Cluster, Cesáreo Pardal, stressed that “we are a land of contrasts in which each visit will be experienced in a different way”. Pardal highlighted the efforts of professionals in the Galician tourism sector so that “each person who comes to Galicia returns home with an experience to remember and with the desire to return because there is not just one Galicia, there are many”.
Among the strengths of Destination Galicia, the different routes of the Way of St. James, the multiple possibilities of rural, river, maritime, thermal or gastronomic tourism, without losing sight of our 6 natural parks, the National Park of the Atlantic Islands or that we are one of the communities with the highest number of beaches with blue flags were put in value.
Cesáreo Pardal pointed out that on the basis of this natural and cultural heritage “we have created a very varied tourist offer, under the premise of sustainability in all areas”. A tourist offer that respects the environment, that contributes to the conservation of the heritage and the generation of wealth in the local communities. A tourism far from overcrowding that allows travellers to imbibe the spirit of the places they visit. The president of the Cluster stressed that the tourist who comes to Galicia “we not only offer them a trip, we offer them experiences”.
