The Holiday World Show is on this weekend in Dublin.Tomorrow is your last chance to visit it in the RDS Simmonscourt. It is always a popular show, and it also one we enjoy visiting in order to get new ideas. So what is hot or stood out to us:
The Mayo stand: Mayo is doing a great job promoting itself as a major tourist destination. It is wild, it is fabulous for adventures, it is a must visit location... From Achill to belmullet, from Knockranny to the many walks available in Mayo, it was all there.
The Donegal stand: Donegal has been in the limelight over the last few years , and it is well deserved. It is a fabulous county which is wild, beautiful and unspoiled. From the beauty of Inishowen to the magnificant Slieve League, visit it during 2018.
The Galway stands: Galway is the place to be in 2018. It is not for nothing that Galway got voted "Best home holiday destination" in the Independent travel awards. And their stand stood out to us, from oysters to beers, it was all there. Visiting the city of the tribes, you won't be disappointed
The Munster Vales: Branded Ireland's newest travel destination, the beautiful stand allows you to discover this beautiful part of Ireland
The Causeway Coast: Belfast and Derry are must visit locations, the causeway coast is there to be discovered. Even gaining more popularity than ever through Games of Thrones, put it on your bucket list for 2018
The Spanish and Portuguese stands are always big, but this year it is not just the old favourites, but also the lesser known places are well presented. From Galicia to Asturias, from Basque country to Parque Natural Cabo de Gata all to be found in Spain. Or do you prefer Portugal, rather than the old favorite the Algarve, why not discover Lourinha. Lourinha is the dinosaur capital of Portugal, and a new museum is opening this spring.
Morocco: with new flights to Marrakesh from Dublin, it was never easier to discover the undiscovered Morocco or venture into the Atlas mountains
Tsjechie: Prague is beautiful , but venturing away from the main tourist area let's you discover the beauty of Tsjechie. And we were told that the prices are much, much cheaper the further you venture away from Prague. A meal (starter/main course would be around €8)
Iceland: Yes, Iceland is getting more and more popular, and the Iceland/WOW stand let's you discover the amazing scenery and activities.
China : Yes, we all know china, but looking at the multitude of regions in China, there is loads to discover.
Mongolia: Mongolia is becoming more popular with tourists, especially if you like to discover their amazing culture, music and food
So why not head into the RDS tomorrow and discover some new destination for yourself. This year, more locations and the lesser known regions are well represented at the show. And before you go, why not print of a 2 for 1 voucher and bring a friend (https://www.holidayworldshow.com/ )
