China boost for tourist industry

IS it our history? Our green fields? Or the designer clothes in our stores? Whatever the reason, expect to see a great many more Chinese tourists in Ireland in coming years.

The country's biggest online travel agent has named us Best Potential Destination for 2014, with Tourism Ireland aiming to attract 50,000 Chinese visitors a year by 2017.

It's great news for our tourist industry.
