PRESS RELEASE 6 misconceptions about rabies

Rabies is one of the deadliest infections known to humans. But, it’s also 100% preventable.

So, in order to help you better understand this virus, Tropical Medical Bureau are here to tell you the truth behind the most common misconceptions about rabies…

‘Rabies is only transmitted by animal bites’
Rabies can also be transmitted through contact with the saliva of an infected animal. The likes of licks or scratches from rabid animals can transmit the virus.

Yes, bites are the most common transmission but when saliva enters any open wound or mucus membrane, the potential to catch rabies is just as likely.

‘It will be obvious if an animal is rabid’
We’re all guilty of having an idea in our head of what a rabid animal will look like and so, of course we’d notice one immediately if we were to see one – false.

Not all affected animals demonstrate clear and visible signs of the illness. With that said, it’s important to always avoid contact with warm blooded animals – such as cats, dogs or even monkeys.

‘I don’t need to worry about rabies in the United States’
Canine rabies isn’t much of an issue in the United States but that doesn’t mean the disease isn’t something to worry about.

In fact, rabies can still be transmitted to humans from wild animals such as prairie dogs, raccoons, foxes, skunks and of course bats.

‘I would easily notice an animal bite’
Studies have shown that in both Canada and the United States, most human rabies infections are associated with bats!

These small creatures tend to leave even smaller puncture wounds – scratches and bites that may not be completely noticeable to the human eye.

‘If I really had rabies, the symptoms would have appeared shortly after I was bitten’
Following the bite of an infected animal, symptoms of the virus can take weeks, months or years to appear.

The length of time before symptoms appear can vary based on where on the body you’ve been bitten and the amount of virus injected. Wild animals tend to be the highest risk.

‘The vaccine just gives me more time to seek treatment’
Actually, the vaccine works by teaching your immune system how to produce the protective antibodies against this horrific disease. After any possible exposure you’ll need to boost those antibodies to a higher level to be certain that you are protected.

We hope you find the truth behind the misconceptions about rabies helpful! For more travel health tips and advice call your local TMB clinic and book in to speak with one of our qualified professionals.

To book an appointment for vaccinations and see a list of our base and associate clinics, please contact Tropical Medical Bureau on 00-353-1-2715-200 or visit www.tmb.ie.

Best Western Hotels & Resorts

Best Western Hotels & Resorts targets Irish Hotel Owners, Developers and Investors with new-look Brand Portfolio
Plan is for 10 hotels in Ireland in the next five years


Best Western Hotels & Resorts (BWHR) has launched an awareness building campaign to demonstrate to Irish hotel owners, developers and potential investors how much the brand has changed and emerged significantly over the past number of years.

BWHR intends to build awareness in the Irish market of this new and improved global brand and its products. The group intends to have 10 hotels in Ireland within five years and is targeting existing properties and new builds with at least 75 rooms in both the Republic and Northern Ireland.

BWHR has established a team of 23 in its Dublin-based office, working across revenue, eCommerce, sales, marketing, support and business development. A new Director of Development Vivienne Nyhan has also been appointed to work with hoteliers and potential investors.

Best Western Hotels & Resorts has a portfolio of over 4,200 branded hotels in operation with a global footprint covering over 100 countries. There are two existing BWHR hotels operating on the island of Ireland however “our objective is to motivate more Irish hotel owners and investors to take a look at the new brand image and talk to us to show what we can offer them”, says Vivienne Nyhan, International Development Director, BWHR.

There are 13 brands in the BWHR portfolio that cater for all market segments, from 3 to 5-star property types. In the UK there are 250 hotels, while BWHR is the largest hotel group in Sweden, with 156 hotels in Germany and over 2,000 hotels in the United States.

In Ireland, the group is looking to establish the Best Western Plus, Best Western Signature and Best Western Premier brands as well as new boutique brands, Sadie and Aiden, whether for hotel conversion opportunities or indeed new builds.

Irish Tourism Comes Calling In Halifax – Unravel Travel TV

Irish Tourism is on the move. Inspired by a 16% increase in visitors in 2017, representatives from 13 partner firms hosted an evening for Halifax-based travel agents in the Great Hall of the Dalhousie University Club. The Great Hall was a fitting setting since its two-and-a-half-story-high vaulted ceiling and minstrel’s gallery has an old-world, medieval castle-like feel.

The message was Ireland is what you imagine and much more. And its growth in tourism shows how on-point it is for the prime travel motivators for all demographics.

Sandra Moffatt, director of marketing promoted the high access to the country, the volume of ready-to-sell packages and ability to customize itineraries, authentic experiences, and the wide range of local experts to enhance any experience, the food and hospitality. She also noted that Ireland isn’t a summer-, winter- or three-season destination. It’s a year-round destination. One of the presenting partners, Siobhan Byrne Learat, from Adams & Butler, told the group, “In Ireland we don’t have summer and winter clothes. We have clothes. We wear them year round.”

Moffatt also mentioned Conde Nast Traveler listed Ireland as number three in their top 10 countries to visit.

Among its attributes is golf. Ireland is home to a third of the world’s links courses. That’s an interesting selling point since Canadians have the highest golf participation rates in the world.

In July the Royal Portrush Course is hosting the 148th Open. For non-players, The Open is such a famous tournament it doesn’t need a fuller name. On the edge of the Portrush course is the ruined Dunluce Castle which has a funny story – funny in the context of Irish humour – about a storm that sent the castle’s kitchen, cooks and pots crashing into the sea.

For those with Downton Abbey-addicted clients, Ireland has 600 stately homes and castles. Many of these homes and castles accept guests. Some make their owners available for a special event or experience. Among the possibilities are having a glass of wine with the Honourable Desmond Guinness, tea with the Earl of Rosse at Birr Castle (as Lord Snowdon’s brother he is the Queen’s former brother-in-law) or sharing a whisky with the Jameson Family (of the distillery fame).

For the more adventurous there are unique experiences from cycling, climbing, traversing the Garrick-a-Rede swinging rope bridge and exploring the 40,000+ natural stone columns of the Giant’s Causeway. For man-made creations, the burial mount at New Grange predates the pyramids by 5,000 years.

The 2,500-km-long Wild Atlantic Way is the world’s longest touring route. Its success has spurred the development of the 314-km-long Causeway Coastal Route, which is rated one of the world’s best touring routes, and The Gobbins guided adventure cliff walk.

For city experiences, Titanic Belfast maintains strong interest and has been rated the world’s leading attraction. Dublin is promoting five-day St. Patrick’s Day celebrations and Waterford, which is best known for the crystal produced here, is central to Ireland’s Viking triangle. Waterford has more national monuments in a three-block area than are found in all the rest of Ireland. It also has a 42-km cycling route.

Armagh is the country’s ecclesiastical capital. With two St. Patrick’s cathedrals – one Church of Ireland (Protestant), one Roman Catholic – it is a popular destination for faith-based groups and individuals who follow a pilgrim route. St. Patrick was actually dean of the Protestant cathedral (which at the time was a Catholic church).

Amargh, which is where Gulliver’s Travels was written, is also a foodie city, a genealogical centre and home to many traditional Irish sports. Among those sports is Hurling, which is played here year round. Hurley-on-ice, which was played in Windsor, Nova Scotia in 1800, is considered the roots for hockey, so has that extra Canadian interest.

Screen tourism, driven by The Games of Thrones and Star Wars’ The Last Jedi, is drawing visitors on a type of cultural pilgrimage to locations where these productions have been filmed.

Some of the intense new travel experiences are the knitting tours. They’ve got the sheep and history and are drawing knitters from around the world who come to learn, experiment and pursue their passion.

Moffat’s colleague said they support agents and sellers with high commissions, value for money for visitors, authentic experiences, local experts, easy customization of packages and itineraries, a history of hospitality, and a real year-round destination. In addition to newsletters, e-zines, promotional literature, market advice, fam trips, workshops, trade shows, Irish Tourism will provide content for sellers’ social media accounts, as well as material targeted to client interest.

Another message was variation of price points. Ireland can provide luxurious five-star experiences in castle resorts, but for the price-sensitive also provide family-friendly-priced experiences.

The evening began with a reception-trade show, speed-dating-type-rotating table presentations, dinner and Irish music. Amongst themselves, the 70 Halifax-based agents considered it one of the better organized evenings they are invited to.

Participating Irish and Canada-based partners were B&B Ireland, The Griffin Group (small, Irish-owned hotel group), Visit Armagh, Waterford Treasures, Giant’s Causeway World Heritage Site, Galway 2020 (when they are the European Capital of Culture), Adams & Butler, Moloney & Kelly, The Irish Tourism Group, Royal Irish Tours, Globus Family of Brands, CIE Tours and Collette Vacations.
