Clarion tops: The Clarion Hotel in Dublin Airport was overall winner of the third Gulliver Ireland Tourism Accommodation Awards 2006. The awards recognise online marketing excellence demonstrated by Hotel, Guesthouse, B & B and Self-catering accommodation suppliers around the country through their partnership with Gulliver Ireland.
The awards announcement was made as Gulliver-owned GoIreland.com reported strong growth in online regional tourism bookings around the country. Outside of Dublin, the Midlands East and North West (both 58%); south East (48%) and West (37%) were the top four regions recording the most online booking growth last year. Apart from Dublin, the South West region captured the most online tourism bookings in 2006, nearly 7,000.
