International football legend Packie Bonner has teamed up with Tourism Ireland to promote the Coolest Place on the Planet as the perfect holiday destination for Scottish tourists.


The Burtonport native took part in Tourism Ireland’s first promotion of 2018 in Scotland, a B2B workshop and networking event with Scottish travel professionals.


Donegal Tourism, Abbey Hotel, The Central Hotel, The Nesbitt Arms Hotel, Mount Errigal Hotel, Arnolds Hotel, Villa Rose Hotel, Jackson’s Hotel and Redcastle Oceanfront Golf & Spa Hotel also made the trip to Glasgow this week.


In all, 34 tourism businesses from Ireland – including hotels, visitor attractions, ferry companies and regional tourism organisations – had the opportunity to meet with influential Scottish tour operators and travel agents, as well as local travel and lifestyle journalists.


Lonely Planet writer Fionn Davenport also joined Tourism Ireland at the event, helping to deliver the message about some of the many great reasons to visit Ireland in 2018.


The annual event provides a valuable platform for the participating companies from Ireland to network and win business for the year ahead.


Barney Mc Laughlin, Head of Donegal Tourism said “Scotland is an important market for Donegal and Celtic Connections presented Donegal with a valuable opportunity for the tourism businesses in Donegal to showcase their offering. Donegal Tourism staff were also on hand to communicate all that is unique and exciting about Donegal.
