Travel agent Joe Walsh Tours goes out of business after operating for 60 years

After 60 years of business, travel agent ‘Joe Walsh Tours’ is shutting down with the Commission for Aviation Regulation (CAR) stating that the company is unable to fulfil its obligations to customers.

The CAR stated, “The Commission operates a consumer protection scheme and, if you find you are out of pocket, you may be covered by this scheme,” while adding that a Refund Credit Note Scheme is in operation and that it may cover you if your holiday has been cancelled and have yet to be refunded by the company.

Founded in 1961 by Joe Walsh, the company became one of Ireland’s best-known and largest travel agents and tour operators.

The company, which was currently run by Mr Walsh’s sons Barry and David, ceased trading at the beginning of the pandemic but remained open to help customers with refunds and rebookings.
