St Pete’s/Clearwater Wants More Irish Visitors

Florida has many great attractions but its natural and cultural gem is located on its west coast in St Pete’s/Clearwater. While no figures are available for Irish visitors, the UK/Ireland/Scandinavia market sent more than 659,000 to this idyllic destination in 2013.VSPC_2010stock_p3-d5-2526

 

So it was no surprise to meet Paul Warry and his team in Dublin recently on a trade promotion, when he told Irish Travel Trade News that they are keen to grow the number of visitors from Ireland to the greater St Pete’s/Clearwater area.

Now that Aer Lingus has announced a four flights a week schedule to Orlando, it will be so much more convenient to travel on to the St Pete’s/Clearwater area. These flights will operate from 1st May to 26th October 2015.
