Bellaghy Tour Company is Luxury Tourism Award Winner

Bellaghy based InSite Tours Ireland has been announced as a winner in the LUX Tourism Awards 2018. Company Director Fergal Kearney, accepting the award for ‘Best New Tourism Business 2018’, says, “I am delighted that all the hard work put into setting up and establishing the business has been recognised after just one full year of operation. During 2017, InSite Tours Ireland hosted over 600 visits across our tour packages and this figure is on target to double in 2018”. He added, “It is particularly gratifying to have received recognition for my tours from the luxury end of the market, where visitors cherish high-end 5-star service and quality. Indeed, my visitors in 2017 ranged from cruise ship passengers to clients of the Belmond Grand Hibernian luxury train, Ireland’s very own Orient Express”.

Announcing the 2018 winners, Jessie Wilson, Coordinator, said, “Luxury travel has started to outpace the rest of the travel industry, due to a hierarchy of luxury travel needs, ranging from 5-star quality and service standards to exclusive VIP privacy and security. As such, it is our pleasure to be able to showcase the very best of the best from across the industry, and wish them even greater achievements in the future.”

LUX Magazine editor, Hannah Stevenson adds, “For those living the lavish lifestyle, travelling to exotic and luxurious locations is a necessity. With more-and-more companies offering the little extras to make their luxury services more comprehensive, the competition to be the best has surged.

“The LUX Tourism Awards 2018 has been designed to reward those succeeding within one of the world’s most extravagant industries. Our awards showcase the best of the best for those who provide a unique, enjoyable, and luxury home away from home. Those firms that truly go above and beyond for their clients are who we award.”
