Tourism officials from America will begin a trip to Dingle today.

The Greater Springfield Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Dingle Peninsula Tourism Alliance have announced a co-marketing programme.

The aim is to promote the Dingle Peninsula in Western Massachusetts, and the Western Mass region on the Dingle Peninsula and throughout County Kerry.

Members of the Western Mass tourism community and officials from the Dingle Peninsula’s sister city, West Springfield, Massachusetts will arrive in Dingle today and stay until Tuesday.

They’ll take part in meetings with the Dingle Peninsula Tourism Alliance and the local business community, and they’ll be officially welcomed at an event at the Dingle Tourist Information Office on Monday.
