Matthews Coach Hire is constantly active in promoting the north-east as a destination to potential tourists in both the United States and Europe.
“Because of the Troubles, both sides of the border were seen as somewhat off the tourism trail until recent times,” said Colm Murphy, Travel Coordinator with Matthews Coach Hire. “There are few trips to compare to the likes of Slieve Gullion, the Mourne Mountains, the heritage sites of the Boyne Valley, or the medieval town of Carlingford.”
