Irish Travel Agent – Magic Vacations - focuses on 2021 market – with unique drive to 2020 Staycations in Kinsale as the Carrot!



May 14th 2020:


Magic Vacations is an Irish travel agent which is an official Disney partner.   The company, whilst currently in lockdown  because of the COVID-19 crisis, started to look at innovative ways of driving business for 2021 for its clients, many of whom cannot take a holiday this year due to financial restrictions, as well as tourism restrictions.

At the same time, owner, John Barrett, a Corkman, whose main office is in the middle of Kinsale, also saw the devastation this crisis has brought on home holidays, and particularly to Kinsale, one of Ireland’s most popular seaside/port destinations, at the end of the Wild Atlantic Way, often seen as the Culinary Capital of Ireland.

Hence his idea.   Help the beautiful town of Kinsale to reboot this Autumn. His offer:

  •  All clients who book a Magic Vacations holiday for 2021, to Disneyland Paris –


will receive a one night stay including breakfast in an equivalent 3 or 4 star hotel in Kinsale.

  • John’s Travel Store in 15 Main St.Kinsale which opened last year will become a Magic Vacations Welcome Centre in November 2020 promoting Kinsale, and all its services, attractions and businesses, restaurants, bars and retail shops.
  • John is developing a Kinsale “ Passport” – where visitors can follow a Kinsale trail getting their passport “ stamped” as they go, and availing of multiple discounts and special 2 for 1 offers.

 Said John Barrett “ this year is our year to adapt and innovate in this crisis. And also support local business.  This new normal of 2020, means less holidays abroad.   And yet we still need to think about to 2021 to revive our own business, and international travel.   I believe that if we innovate like this, we can protect our own local business communities as well.      We have already seen a huge amount of bookings for 2021 in the last month, and so this will benefit Kinsale in November of this year.    We are aiming to get at least 500 visitors to Kinsale this November, and we are well on our way – offering a Magic Vacation/Staycation!
