Dutch group visit Powerscourt House & Gardens – Wicklow People

Representatives of one of the biggest tour operators in the Netherlands, de Jong Intra Vakanties, along with 16 of its top-producing travel agents, have been enjoying some of the beautiful sights of Co Wicklow during their trip to Ireland.

The group were here on a fact-finding visit as guests of Tourism Ireland and Fáilte Ireland. As part of their itinerary, they paid a visit to Powerscourt House and Gardens in Enniskerry which was one of the highlights of their visit.


Dutch travel agents visiting Ireland including (front, l-r) Meta Buchner, Sofie Van De Kerchf, Miranda Kogman, Marye Peters and Martyn Van Lienen; and (back, l-r) Femie Hazewintel, Mayola Gitmans, Laura Geux, Tessa Harmsen, Josephine Bibo, Jacqueline Van Howen, Renee Hawermans and Cindy Van de Wiel, with Linda Veeke and Diny Kouwigzen, both de Jong Intra Vakanties

The aim of the visit was to expose them to some of the many superb tourist offerings the country has to offer so that, when they return home, they can better advise their clients about holidaying in Ireland.

Karen van der Horst, Tourism Ireland’s Manager the Netherlands, said: ‘Fact-finding visits like this are an important element of our work with the travel trade in the Netherlands, as the travel agents get to experience at first-hand what’s on offer here for Dutch holidaymakers – helping them to sell the destination with more enthusiasm and expertise when they return home.’
