The visit to the 2016 members’ meeting at the historic Goodwood Motor Circuit in Chichester was facilitated by Tourism Ireland. Tourism Ireland is actively promoting longer-stay holidays to prospective British holidaymakers, encouraging them to discover West Kerry by car. Great Britain is Ireland’s largest tourism market – between November and January of this year, 121,000 extra tourists travelled from Britain to Ireland, compared to the same three month period the previous year.
