Welcoming the guests, Ian Scott, Director UK and Ireland for Dubai Tourism and Commerce Marketing, said: “Dubai has been given a higher profile in Ireland – and it is working. Ireland is massively outperforming the overall market growth and we expect to have welcomed between 35-40,000 visitors from Ireland by the year-end. Some 17% of the Irish growth is going into 3-star or 4-star self-catering accommodation.”
