Let Ireland engage and inspire you

Whether you are planning an event, international gathering or incentives, the Meet in Ireland team is ready to help make them a resounding success.

Energised, engaged, inspired, exhilarated, revitalised, rewarded – whatever you want your delegates to feel, you can be sure a meeting or incentive in Ireland will deliver. 

Ireland offers a wealth of experiences just waiting to be discovered by delegates. From adventures on the Wild Atlantic Way and soaking up Dublin’s vibrant atmosphere to Game of Thrones tours in Northern Ireland, the Emerald Isle forms a truly impressive backdrop for business events.  

The accolades keep rolling in – Lonely Planet has just named Belfast and the Causeway Coast as the world’s number-one region to visit in 2018, Forbes named Ireland the best place to do business in 2013, while last year Dublin was voted the world’s third-friendliest city on earth by Condé Nast Traveller, with Galway coming in at number six.

Ireland is frequently praised for the friendliness of its people and our expert Meet in Ireland team takes the famous Irish welcome a step further – by going above and beyond to make sure every event is a resounding success.

In addition to a wealth of resources for planners, including the new Meet in Ireland website, we offer a range of financial support for activities such as welcome receptions, gala dinners and entertainment. 

Special events call for unique venues, something Ireland is not short of. Dine like royalty in the opulent George V Room at Ashford Castle Hotel, named the ‘No. 1 Resort & Inn in the UK and Ireland’ at the 2016 World’s Best Awards, or meet in Dublin’s Guinness Storehouse and discover the history of one of the world’s most iconic breweries.

Castles and cathedrals, distilleries, luxurious hotels, modern university campuses and purpose-built conference centres; Ireland has a diverse range of venues capable of hosting meetings and conventions of all sizes.

Inspiring Authenticity

If you’re looking for incentive inspiration, there are authentic experiences to suit all tastes, from adventurous outdoor activities and artisan food to indulgent spas and world renowned golf courses. For something truly exclusive, enjoy a private tour of the renowned Ballymaloe House and Cookery School in Cork. Watch a master chef at work, before baking your own loaf of bread – a deliciously authentic taste of Ireland’s Ancient East. Or embrace the Wild Atlantic Way of life at Dromoland Castle in Clare: receive céad míle fáilte - a hundred thousand welcomes - then enjoy afternoon tea in the walled gardens, and cap your day off by witnessing breathtaking birds of prey in a falconry display.

All these experiences and more are literally on the doorstep – flight time is about 45 minutes from Great Britain, with direct access from 26 regional airports. For international groups, air access is also frequent and easy from Europe, the Middle East and the US. With seven convention bureaux all over Ireland, no matter where you decide to holdy our corporate event, our teams on the ground will give you all the support you need to ensure that meetings, incentives and conferences hosted in Ireland are truly immersive and innovative.
