Who We Are

ITIC is the Irish Tourism Industry Confederation. The representative body of the Irish tourism industry, it works with Government Agencies, Tourist Boards, North and South, Tourism Ireland Limited, the EU, and other organisations whose activities impact on tourism.

In particular, the focus is on research, casemaking and influencing policies, which shape the future of Ireland’s Tourism Industry.

ITIC’s case-making is based on a strong research programme, details of which will be found in this website. Our membership consists of almost 30 representative organisations, covering all sectors of Irish tourism – i.e. accommodation, access transport, internal transport, visitor attractions, incoming tour operators, ports and airports.
