Tourism is the worlds largest industry and plays a significant role in providing employment and income in most modern economies. Ireland is no exception and has seen a dramatic rise in employment opportunities in this sector in recent years. In addition, the emergence of low cost airline carriers, the rise of budget hotels and the ease of booking on the internet, have created interesting challenges and opportunities for the Tourism industry.
