A number of Kerry B&Bs have been affected by the closure of a tour operator.
RTS Travel Limited, trading as Exploring Vacations, is a tour operator based in Mullingar, Co Westmeath.
According to its website, the company ceased trading today.
A number of holidaymakers had booked and paid for accommodation in the Killarney and East Kerry areas, however, the properties have yet to be paid.
The company intends to convene a meeting of creditors, to be held in October, at which a liquidator will be appointed.
One Kerry business owner affected is Eugene O’Sullivan who runs Noraville B&B in Killarney.
Mr O’Sullivan says Exploring Vacations organised holidays in Ireland for North Americans.
He says he’d been given assurances by the company.
