Millioner av irer har gjennom tidene emigrert fra den grønne øya og søkt lykken andre steder. Mange irer har satt sitt preg på stedene de kom til, og det nye opplevelsessenteret Epic Ireland forteller nettopp disse historiene, skriver Se og Hør.

Senteret ligger i det nyoppussede området Docklands i Irlands hovedstad Dublin.

Accommodation Shortage in Dublin Could Limit Tourism

Dublin

A report commissioned by the national Irish tourism authority, Fáilte Ireland, has revealed that the capital city, Dublin will face an ongoing shortage of accommodation from 2016-2018, despite new hotels in the pipeline, Hospitalityireland.com reports.

The Analysis of Visitor Accommodation in Dublin study said that this shortage poses a threat to tourism in Dublin, limiting visitor numbers which have been growing rapidly in the past three or four years.

While some 5,550 extra hotel rooms are expected to be added in the city from projects that are underway or are in the planning phase, most of these won’t come to fruition until 2018 or later, before which accommodation will become extremely sparse.

Commenting on the report, Minister of State for Tourism and Sport, Patrick O’Donovan said:

“Minister Ross and I welcome the detailed analysis provided by this report and will be considering the recommendations in consultation with the relevant tourism and State bodies.

“While I note the report’s findings that suggest the accommodation capacity pressures in our capital may ease from 2019 on, there are serious challenges in the intervening period. It is vitally important that we keep the focus on value and competitiveness.

“We must remember that, since seven out of ten visitors to Ireland will stay in Dublin at some stage in their trip, whether it is their sole destination or a gateway to the rest of the country, the issues outlined in this report have a national impact.”

The report made a number of recommendations to alleviate the problem, including placing a greater emphasis on market trends, making planning permission for new projects a faster process with city officials, and improving tourism initiatives and transport to destinations outside of Dublin.

Fáilte Ireland Chairman Michael Cawley, added: “The report indicates that there are a potential extra 5,500 bedrooms due to come on-stream but even these are not guaranteed and it is imperative that we do all that we can to facilitate them.”

Idag 17.mars feirer Irland sin nasjonaldag, St.Patrick’s Day. Dagen feires ikke bare i Irland – da det er en av verdens mest populære feiringer, og i svært mange land og storbyer, spesielt der det bor mange irer og irskættede, feires det med parader, irsk folkemusikk, Guinness-øl, og selvsagt med fargen grønn – den irske nasjonalfargen, som en viktig komponent. Det fåes blant annet grønt (!) øl, selvsagt…

Verdens største St.Patrick’s Day-parade holdes i New York, en by der over 5 prosent av befolkningen har irske aner.

Dødsdagen til Irlands skytshelgen, St.Patrick (385-461 e.Kr.) feires ikke bare som nasjonaldag i Irland, men også som offentlig fridag i Nord-Irland, i den kanadiske provinsen Newfoundland and Labrador, og på den britisk-styrte øya Montserrat i Karibia, der svært mange av innbyggerne er etterkommere av irske innvandrere.

Store St.Patrick-markeringer finner også sted i Chicago, Sydney, London, Brussel, Boston, Auckland, Tokyo, Cape Town, Toronto, Munchen og Buenos Aires.

Den første offisielle St.Patrick’s Day-paraden i Irland fant sted i Waterford i 1903.

I Irlands hovedstad Dublin blir det St.Patricks-festival og storstilt feiring i tre hele dager, les mer her:

Dublin Port Company has announced the launch of Cruise Dublin, the company’s new Cruise Tourism Development and Marketing agency established to grow Dublin as Ireland’s premier port of choice for cruise, reports the afloat.ie website.

Cruise Dublin’s role is to promote Dublin as Ireland’s cruise capital to cruise lines internationally, working collectively with its members who are drawn from the capital’s leading retail outlets, visitor experiences and tourism bodies, including Fáilte Ireland, the Irish national tourism authority. 

As a membership organisation, Cruise Dublin’s remit is to support those businesses in the capital looking to develop their offering in tandem with the future growth of Dublin as a marquee cruise destination.

Its formation comes as figures reveal that cruise tourism is currently growing at a rate of 20 per cent per annum in Dublin, and projected to grow substantially in the coming years.

Allure of the Seas

Dublin Port Company’s ABR Project, recently approved by An Bord Pleanála, will facilitate future growth and allow Dublin Port to handle the world’s largest cruise liners, including the 360 meter long Allure of the Seas, owned by Royal Caribbean Cruises, the Miami-based Norwegian-American shipping company. 

The ABR Project, once complete, will mean that larger ships will be able to routinely call at Dublin, turn within the expanded Alexandra Basin West and berth as far upriver as East Link Bridge, adding a new dimension to the cityscape.

As we approach the centenary of the week that led to the birth of the Irish State, people are looking to find out more about the events surrounding the rising, any possible family connections to what went on and the experiences of the men and women who fought at the GPO and other landmark sites. Dublin Bus’ 1916 Tour Bus is a welcome addition to the commercial services the company already has in place and promises an accurate and convincing portrayal of the rebellion to Dubliners and those coming from further afield.”

“TOO FEW HOTELS” IN DUBLIN CLAIM AS TOURISM IRELAND KICKS OFF

There are too few hotels in Dublin, which will act as a brake to developing the economy across the island, a leading accountancy firm claimed yesterday, on the same day Tourism Ireland launched its plans to boost tourism in the capital, the irishexaminer.com reports.

Crowe Horwath accounting and consultant firm said occupancy rates of up to 80% indicates that Dublin hotels are effectively full and illustrates the severity of the shortage even at this early stage in the economic upswing.

Because of the construction industry is in a bad shape there is no evidence the new hotels will be built. It says that planning problems and finding funding for projects are the “key hurdles.”

“The limited availability of rooms in Dublin city is causing a bottleneck that is likely to damage the full potential of Ireland’s economic growth and needs urgent attention,” says the accountants.

Yesterday, Tourism Ireland formally launched its follow on to the Wild Atlantic Way, by saying it will launch ads abroad in the new year for its new programme highlighting “Ireland’s Ancient East”, as well as promoting a campaign around an initiative specifically for the capital, called “Dublin – A Breath of Fresh Air”.

The tourism agency’s chief executive Niall Gibbons, said the 7.9 million visitors coming to the island this year was a record.

It now aimed to attract 8.2 million people NeXT year: “Growth has been recorded from all our markets around the world–with record numbers arriving here from North America, Mainland Europe and Australia and developing markets. Throughout the year, Tourism Ireland undertook a packed programme of promotions, to bring Ireland to the attention of travellers everywhere,” he said.

But Aiden Murphy, partner at Crowe Horwath, a specialist in the hotel and tourism sector, said the occupancy levels means that Dublin hotels are already effectively full.

The limited availability of rooms in Dublin city is likely to damage the full potential of Ireland’s economic growth.

“If Dublin is considered the gateway to Ireland, what happens when there are no rooms to be found,” he said.

The accountants say that the average rate charged for a room in Dublin is 97.25 euros, up 7.2% from 90.73 euros a year earlier. Room rates have still to match 2006 levels, but are costly compared with prices outside the capital, including 79.36 euros in Midlands and East; 79.43 euros in the South west; and 67.50 euros along the Atlantic seaboard.

“Hotels require active management and have longer planning horizons. Offices are currently more attractive to build and lack of finance is also compounding the issue,” Aiden Murphy said.
