Visit Jersey – You Will Not Be Disappointed

It has been some years since Visit Jersey has been to Ireland to update the trade and media of everything that is new and exciting on the island, but last week it held a workshop at The Odeon, Harcourt Street, Dublin, along with five hotels.

With 24 beautiful beaches, spectacular walking, unique heritage, and three castles, along with 150 restaurants and 34 attractions, there is never a shortage of things to occupy the discerning tourist.

Sarah Barton from Visit Jersey explained that Jersey has an annual total of 785,000 visitors and 10,000 of these are Irish, an increase of 17% year-on-year.

The year 2020 marks the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War and Jersey expects a huge growth in visitors for events around the planned anniversary.

Fiona Kerley from the family-owned Ommaroo Hotel in St Helier told Irish Travel Trade News that the hotel was the German officers’ mess during the wartime occupation of Jersey. Fiona is the fourth generation of her family to run the 82-room hotel.
