Seattle Wants More Irish Visitors

Seattle Wants More Irish Visitors

The message from the Port of Seattle team, on a visit to Dublin, was that they would like to see more Irish visitors to their beautiful city… and the really good news is that Delta Air Lines is commencing a new direct flight from London Heathrow to Seattle on 30th March. So this will open up access to this great cruising port.

The best way to see Seattle is to take the Emerald City Trolley that offers various tours around Seattle: the classic downtown tour will explore the various city’s attractions such as Pike Place Market, The Space Needle, Chihuly Garden & Glass, Seattle Center, and Seattle’s Waterfront.

Popular tours will take visitors to the Boeing factory and Future of Flight for all the aviation enthusiasts and during the summer season the Woodinville Wine Shuttle brings visitors to Woodinville Wine Country nestled in the beautiful Sammamish River Valley, just 30 minutes northeast of Seattle and home to over 90 wineries and tasting rooms representing every appellation in Washington.
