Spotlight on Cork in Marie Claire

Wednesday, 10th January, 2018 5:09pm

An article highlighting Cork featured in the online edition of Marie Claire magazine this week, profiling the city to the magazine’s readers and potential holidaymakers.

Tourism Ireland in London, in conjunction with Fáilte Ireland, invited journalist Trish Halpin to visit last October. The resulting article appears this week under the headline ‘Cork is the city break you probably never thought of (but really should)’. The online edition of Marie Claire has about 1.2 million readers every month.

The piece highlights some of Cork’s attractions and includes a host of food, music, history, shopping and cultural draws. City locations mentioned in the article are the Franciscan Well brewery, the Farmgate and, of course, the English market, which is described as “the best of Cork’s foodie scene”. County attractions lauded include Kinsale harbour, Charles Fort and Fishy Fishy restaurant.

“We are delighted with the excellent coverage in the online edition of Marie Claire magazine”, said Julie Wakley, Tourism Ireland’s Head of Great Britain. “It’s a really great way of showcasing Cork to a large audience of potential visitors, as we kick off our promotional programme for 2018 – helping us to spread the word about what a great place it is to visit and what makes a holiday in Cork so memorable. Publicity is an important element of our overall activity, helping to raise awareness through the British media of the many things to see and do on a holiday in Ireland.”
