All the winners from the weekend’s Irish Travel Trade Network Awards!


Last year, the Irish Travel Trade Network (ITTN) Awards were a much smaller affair due to Covid-19 hospitality restrictions in place. But this year, the Awards came back with a bang!

The Irish Travel Trade Network (ITTN) Awards took place in the Clayton Hotel, Dublin 4 on Saturday, 26th November. It was a star-studded event which saw the cream of the Irish Travel Outbound Industry celebrate an incredible year for the industry.

Managing Director, Sharon Jordan, said, “Ireland’s Travel Trade Network has been providing Ireland’s travel industry, north and south, with independent and insightful, professional reporting for over 55 years. 

“We are delighted to bestow these awards on the 28 companies and wish to recognise the effort made by every company who entered the awards, to reignite our wonderful industry. We wish each company the best for the future.”
