UnCorking Ireland as a destination this autumn

Thursday, 3rd August, 2017 9:05am

Lights, camera, action! Cork has a starring role in a new video produced to encourage people to visit Ireland this autumn.

Culture-filled festivals, castles that display our amazing heritage, cities waiting to be explored in the crisp evening air - that’s how Tourism Ireland described the country.

It has created a new online film to remind travellers around the world who are planning their last-minute short break or holiday, that autumn in Ireland is simply unmissable.

Titled ‘Autumn on the island of Ireland’ the video – which includes Cork’s English Market and Blarney Castle – was created to boost late-season travel to Ireland from around the world and to encourage potential visitors to come and find out what makes Ireland so special in autumn.

The September to December period usually yields as much as 30 per cent of Ireland’s annual overseas tourism business.

The film is being promoted through Tourism Ireland’s social platforms, including Facebook (almost four million fans worldwide), Twitter (411,000+ followers) and on YouTube.

Tourism Ireland is the organisation responsible for promoting the island of Ireland overseas as a leading holiday destination.

In 2016, the country welcomed approximately 10.3 million overseas visitors to the island of Ireland, delivering revenue of €5.3 billion. The film can be watched at youtube.com/watch?v=j_2kGcgtvoM.
