It is estimated that during 2015 almost 45,000 Chinese visitors came to Ireland. China is a massive market and the UN World Tourism Organisation have calculated that around 120 million Chinese people travel abroad every year. They are also big spenders and leave behind $165 billion in destination countries. Tourism Ireland will visit four major cities in China in May 2016 with a view to attracting more people to come to Ireland. We at Halfpenny Bridge Holiday Homes look forward to welcoming all of our Asian visitors in the coming year.
