August 30 (TravelAndy): Tourism Ireland is expecting to see a spurt in the number of visitors following budget airline Ryanair’s announcement of new flights from Munich and Stuttgart to Dublin this winter, as well as the extension of its winter service from Naples into summer 2018.
Niall Gibbons, CEO of Tourism Ireland, said the announcement was good news for Irish tourism, especially in view of the coming shoulder and off-season.
“We already work closely with Ryanair and we look forward to co-operating with them to maximise the promotion of these new services to Dublin.
