Brownell Incentive Travel’s New Business Development Executive Dawn Bridges shares why she recommends Ireland for your next incentive trip below.
When it comes to deciding where to go for an incentive trip, Ireland may not be at the top of your list. But after experiencing what Ireland has to offer for incentive trip experiences firsthand, I learned why you should strongly consider Ireland for your next incentive trip. While there are as many reasons as there are sheep in Ireland, I narrowed it down to my top four.
1. The people
The Irish people are so friendly and welcoming, and they truly appreciate the opportunity to host visitors to their country. Just about everyone in Ireland speaks English (with very unique and lovely Irish accents) so talking with the locals is easy and enjoyable.
2. Easy access
With direct flights from major US airports daily, getting to Ireland is easier than ever. The Dublin airport offers an exclusive arrival experience through their Platinum Services which includes private check-in and luggage handling, chauffer meet and greet off the plane, fast-track through priority immigration, a private suite with drinks and refreshments, and more! Start the incentive experience off with this exclusive experience, and you’re on the right track to an amazing trip!
3. Breathtaking scenery
Ireland isn’t called the Emerald Isle for nothing – it really is “that green”. There are so many beautiful places to see, like Wild Atlantic Way, Cliffs of Moher and Gap of Dunloe. Plus there are historic and beautiful castles, such as Adare Manor and Dromoland Castle, throughout the country. The possibilities for your incentive group itinerary are endless and the program can be as adventurous, historical, or relaxing as you need to be to fit the specific needs of the group.
4. Food and drink
Think Ireland only offers bland potato dishes and corned beef? Think again! Ireland is finally taking its place on the world’s food stage with many new, incredible restaurants popping up all over the country. Whether you take your group to a fun pub to grab a pint of Guinness or go to one of the newest award-winning restaurants, you will provide them an experience they will never forget!
