An extra 5,000 jobs are expected to be created in the tourism sector in 2020.
A new strategy is being launched which ais to boost jobs and visitor numbers in the industry over the next 3 years.
Revenue from international visitors is actually down around €81 million this year to €5.7 billion.
However, it's hoped that can be increased to €6.5 billion by 2022.
Over the next three years, the target is to increase tourist numbers by around 900,000.
It's planning to attract tourists to less well known spots and boost business in regional areas.
2020 will see a focus on regional growth to support overseas tourism from Europe to the island of Ireland. #TI2020
