“Embrace Turkey and let the warmth of the welcome embrace you,” writes Joan Scanlon, Head of Sales & Operations, Wings Abroad Holidays.“From the very moment you arrive in Turkey until the moment you depart you will receive a welcome so warm that it will stay with you for the duration of your stay in this very beautiful country.
“Turkish people have earned a reputation for their unique welcome and their warm hospitality towards people who visit their country and they have a long established relationship with the Emerald Isle. They have mastered what they call the ‘Céad Míle Fáilte’ welcome. Everywhere you go you will hear ‘Hoş Geldiniz’, which means ‘Welcome’ – and they mean it.
“There is a unique bond and friendship between our two countries that continues to grow from strength to strength. It is very much a proven fact that when most Irish people visit Turkey, they continue to return time and time again, introducing friends and family to the wonderful experience that is Turkey.
“Hint: Be prepared to accept the hand of friendship from everyone you meet.”
