A small group of WestJet Rewards members are currently being toured around Ireland by WestJet Executives. After a memorable first evening at the Guinness Storehouse, they are on their way to check out the city’s highways, byways and waterways to discover more of what Dublin has to offer.
It’s fitting that the River Liffey’s name means “life”. Much of the Liffey’s flow supplies drinking water and supports local industry. Upstream, the river generates power at several hydroelectric dams. The river is also used for rowing, canoeing, swimming and fishing. It’s a life-giving waterway in a life-giving city.
A leisurely 45-minute cruise down the river offers a unique view of the city. Visitors float past the beautifully restored Custom House, under the iconic Ha’penny Bridge, and a replica of the tall ship Jeanie Johnston – a famous ship that brought many immigrants to North America in the 1800s.
Also on the agenda is Croke Park, one of the largest stadiums in Europe. More than 80,000 passionate fans cram the stadium for hurling and (Gaelic) football matches. A behind-the-scenes stadium tour and visit to the on-site museum is a must on any Dublin itinerary. Croke Park also boasts some of the most incredible views of the Irish capital – don’t miss the Skyline tour for amazing photos to learn more about Dublin’s famous landmarks.
Even with a long list of world-class attractions on boats, in stadiums, and in the many museums and galleries that abound in Dublin, we hope it’s not just the attractions that leave a lasting impression on our WestJet guests and the many other visitors to Ireland every year. The warmth, hospitality and good craic with the Irish is what people seem to remember the most about this country. They tell great stories and don’t take themselves too seriously. No wonder our guests are so enthused for this new destination – if there was ever a country full of people like WestJetters, it’s Ireland!
This afternoon in Dublin, we hosted a small group of WestJet Rewards members on a tour of the city’s highlights including a cruise along the River Liffey. The event is part of an exclusive Dublin tour created to celebrate our new service to Europe. As the WestJet Rewards program grows, we’re finding more ways to acknowledge our guests and thank them for their loyalty.
