Dubai Tourism hosted a ‘thank you’ lunch for the trade in Dublin’s number one wine-bar, Ely Wine Bar, where Ian Scott, Director UK and Ireland, thanked the trade for all the business they send to Dubai. In 2014 Dubai had 51,047 Irish hotel guests, an increase of 8.1% compared to 2013.
Already this year Dubai has seen an increase of 15% on May arrivals and 13% for June. With double daily flights from Dublin to Dubai by Emirates, it has never been easier to get there.
Hotels continue to be built with four new top properties listed to open this year: the St Regis Dubai, W Hotel, Palazzo Versace Dubai, and the Nikki Beach Hotel and Spa.
The variety of things to do in Dubai continues to grow: bird watchers can experience birdwatching in the city and Falconry displays in Al Maha, plus Dubai has its own flamingo sanctuary in Ras Al Khor.
