Welcome to SITE Ireland

The passionate leaders behind incentive programmes in Ireland

Welcome to SITE Ireland

Established in 1997, SITE Ireland has become one of the most active and best-known chapters in the SITE Global family.

With its hotels of exceptional quality, activities that will inspire awe, and a level of personal service and attention that is unrivaled anywhere else in the world, Ireland has proven itself year on year as one of the most idyllic incentive destinations. SITE Ireland celebrates and supports the development of incentive travel within the Island.

The SITE Ireland community all share the same values and commitments to Incentive travel; we are family; we are friends; we are SITE Ireland.

Presidents Message

Ireland - Membership


The SITE Ireland community is a dynamic group of industry professionals spanning across the incentive travel industry. These individuals strive to be the very best in incentive travel and do so by engaging in high-quality educational opportunities and industry networking. Our membership has gained invaluable accreditation not only through both the CIS and CITP but the exchange of business ideas and solutions amongst community members. Our membership has built strong foundations locally and internationally through many SITE events. Through live and virtual events, SITE Ireland is committed to bringing its members a wealth of knowledge, expertise, and educational opportunities.

Member Testimonial

My SITE Ireland membership is by far the most important subscription from my sales and marketing spend each year. SITE Ireland keeps me connected, and that’s why I am a member. As a very small company, working remotely, my SITE membership has been invaluable for keeping me in touch with the Irish tourism industry where a lot of my business opportunities are generated. I am very grateful to the SITE Board for co-ordinating so many online gatherings over the pandemic, otherwise I don’t think I would have had many other opportunities to stay in touch. It is a wonderful community to be part of, a community that I hope to further integrate myself in over the coming years – next move is to gain a certification!

Ireland Sustainability Incentive


SITE Ireland was the first European chapter to receive the SITE Sustainability Certificate in the pilot program in 2020 and the chapter is committed to continuing on this journey of sustainability improving year on year. With a dedicated sustainability officer, roadmap, and sustainable event measuring tool – we want to help educate the SITE Ireland community, share ideas, and implement sustainable practices within our own events. Aligning ourselves with the UN Sustainability Development Goals, each year we will focus on one theme to center our sustainable efforts around and one of the chapter's goals is to host a zero-emissions event in the near future.  

Member Testimonial

“SITE has been a great networking opportunity for my own personal development and for enhancing the visibility of our company. As a SITE Crystal award winner, Odyssey has a reference point to highlight its excellence within the community and across the industry.

I have found it invaluable to be able to connect with my peers through a global network. I use the Members Directory any time I travel to meet potential new clients as well as with that destination’s suppliers to gain insights into their challenges and the offerings of their destination.

As a member of the Global Site Young Leaders Committee, I get to network with the next generation of industry leaders.”

SITE Ireland Event Incentive

Education & Events

At Site Ireland we create events that offer education, support, and connectivity to allow our members to network and share best practices.  From Familiarisation Trips to quarterly educational sessions, our aim is to ensure that our members are continually using their membership to enhance their knowledge of Incentives and what Ireland has to offer.  Our AGM in September allows our members to connect with each other in an environment that encourages personal growth.  Our event of the year and ‘must attend’ event is our Christmas Party, where we pick a worthwhile charity, and with the generosity of our members in our annual auction, we have the opportunity to give back.
