Workshop Manual - Failte Ireland
Ireland 2014
a
Dear Tourism Partner,
We are delighted to welcome you to Ireland this week for our largest travel trade show – Meitheal – and we look
forward to meeting with you over the coming days to showcase the compelling and competitive experiences
Ireland has to offer your customers.
Meitheal is an extremely important event for Irish tourism businesses as it is the one time each year that so many
of our top international buyers and tour operators are in Ireland, all seeking to learn more about what Ireland can
offer their customers and to experience authentic Ireland for themselves.
As usual we have a multitude of experiences organised for you before, during and after the Meitheal trade show.
We believe these will give you a true taste of our unique culture, heritage, food and scenery and we hope you will
enjoy them.
This year we plan to present with a variety of exciting and attractive options tailored to appeal to travellers of all
types. Whether it is the ‘culture-vulture’, the young hip urban city-breaker, or the adventurous out-doors explorer,
Ireland has a lot to offer. Although it’s a small country, we have been working on some big ideas which we believe
will stand out and prove a magnet for visitors. We look forward to presenting these to you at this year’s Meitheal
as you prepare your own plans for 2015.
We hope you will find that Ireland has more to offer than ever. We are packaging our greatest assets in the
best possible way so that our visitors can experience and enjoy them to the full. This year, we have teams on
hand over the next few days to help you uncover the hidden experiences that make visiting Ireland unique and
unforgettable. You can find more detail on Ireland and what it has to offer in the following pages of this manual.
Finally, on behalf of Fáilte Ireland and our colleagues in Tourism Ireland, I would like to say that we very much
look forward to sharing more of our stories with you, and to showcasing much more of what Ireland has to offer
your business.
As you prepare for a busy few days, I would like to thank you personally for accepting our invitation to Meitheal,
and I look forward to welcoming you and meeting you during your stay with us.
Yours faithfully,
Shaun Quinn
Chief Executive, Fáilte Ireland

Wild, Rugged, Liberating...
Visiting this Summer?
Be sure to download the
FREE Wild Atlantic Way App –
your perfect travel companion.
Details on top spots to visit,
what’s happening nearby and
unmissable Hidden Gems waiting
to be discovered along this
spectacular route - make your
journey the trip of a lifetime!
Available for iPhone and Android from Summer 2014.
Imagine driving along the absolute edge of Western Europe. Imagine exploring a 2,500km
(1,553 miles) long coastline dotted with beaches, harbours, headlands and stunning viewing
points. Imagine stopping your car, feeling the salt spray in your face and the exhilaration of
Atlantic surf. You can do it all and more on the Wild Atlantic Way... a journey of inspiration.

Workshop Manual
The longest coastal touring
route
in theTravel
world.....
Meitheal
- Global
Trade Fair Ireland 2014
The route begins (or ends, depending on your
direction) in West Cork, following roads that hug
the shoreline then suddenly switch back high
above the Atlantic Ocean.
For further information visit:
W: ireland.com/wildatlanticway
You will stop often at the many towns and
villages along the route to stay a night or two.
Imagine whale and dolphin watching along the
coastal waters of Clonakilty and Baltimore or
experiencing the sub-tropical paradise of Garinish
Island. Take a boat trip to the home of Ireland’s
born-storytellers, the Blasket Islands or visit the
Skelligs, a UNESCO world heritage site.
Continue to the Ring of Kerry and Dingle
Peninsula, home to Tom Crean the Antarctic
explorer. Cross the Shannon to west Clare and
Loop Head with its craggy coastline, the Cliffs of
Moher and the limestone formations of the
Burren’s Atlantic Coast. Continue to Galway Bay
and the ‘buzzing’ festival city of Galway. Go island
hopping and sit by turf fires in traditional pubs,
listening to songs and stories in the remote
Gaeltacht regions. Cycle the Great Western
Greenway, a 42km (26 miles) traffic free cycling
and walking trail from Westport to Achill.
On to Donegal, the final (or first) county on the
Wild Atlantic Way. Donegal’s pristine landscape
includes ‘edge of the world’ highlights such as
Slieve League, the highest accessible sea cliffs
in Europe.
FI/22799-14
You could drive the route in one go, but if you’re
looking for something that little bit special, take
it at a gentler pace and savour the numerous
breath-taking viewing points (159 in number)
along the way.
Wherever you start, whenever you finish, Ireland’s
Wild Atlantic Way is a thrilling trip along the utmost
edge of Western Europe. You will want to return
again and again.

Dublin
It is well known that Dublin is steeped in history and can boast of literary giants
and grand architecture. But Dublin is also a city brimming with a contemporary
air of newness. Dublin is experiencing what you might call ‘a moment’. Bubbling
with energy and excitement this cool, cosmopolitan capital has a vibe that will
leave you gasping for more.
Lap up the lively nightlife, immerse yourself in stand-out culture and clear away the cobwebs with
adrenaline pumping action. From street performers to live music, kite surfing to kitch cocktail bars,
from gentle strolls along the coast to ginger prawns straight from the sea. Once you get a taste of
Dublin you’ll realise it’s got a personality you won’t find anywhere else.
Come meet with the Destination Dublin Team to hear about the lesser-known experiences that only
Dubliners know of; the exciting new food scene, pop-up shops, emerging neighbourhoods, coolest
markets, art, fashion and music experiences.
Right now, this vibrant and creative city is bridging the past to the future. It’s time to experience it.
