Donegal represented on major US Tourism Promotion Tour

It’s hoped there will be an increase in US visitors to Donegal next year following what’s been described as a very successful trade mission to three US centres.
Donegal Tourism was represented on the tour, which took in New York, Chicago and Milkaukee, the scene of Tradfest, the world’s largest Irish festival.

Donegal County Council’s Head of Tourism Barney McLaughlin was accompanied by a number of hoteliers and industry representatives.
He says it was a very successful initiative, building on recent high profile features on the county by bodies such as Trip Advisor and National Geographic………….
