New cruise ferry is good news for Irish tourism
Tourism Ireland warmly welcomes today’s announcement by Irish Ferries of its planned investment in a new cruise ferry, costing €144 million. The cruise ferry – which is due for delivery in May 2018 – is good news for Irish tourism.
It is expected to operate on routes between Holyhead and Dublin and between France and Ireland.
Niall Gibbons, CEO of Tourism Ireland, said: “Today’s announcement by Irish Ferries is a real vote of confidence in Irish tourism and good news for future visitors. As an island, the importance of convenient, direct access cannot be overstated – it is absolutely critical to achieving growth in inbound tourism. We already work very closely with Irish Ferries and we look forward to co-operating with them to maximise the promotion of their services using this new cruise ferry.”
