The minister for Tourism Leo Vatadkar has a defined idea: Dublin can attract more tourists.
At the seminar held in Killiney last 2nd March, Vatadkar stated:
“It is my view that Dublin and the Dublin region can do better still. There is absolutely no reason why we can’t have as many international visitors coming to Dublin as Barcelona does every year.”
After a decrease in the number of tourists, the capital of the Republic witnesses an encouraging rise due to various government initiatives. Further investments for building new hotels and for promotion of major and minor touristic venues are expected.
A tourism increase means not only more jobs in the restaurant and hotel industry, but a general rise in all job opportunities.
Meanwhile, the Dublin branch of City Sightseeing Bus, the company that drives tourists along the most important and panoramic city sights, announced the creation of 46 new jobs. Any specific need to apply? Loving Dublin, according to David McConn, the company CEO.
City Sightseeing Bus is looking for drivers, guides, mechanics, sales staff, professional and passionate people who can sell the city and increase the number of visitors in the capital.
