A little island, a lot to know! Tourism Ireland unveils new online film with practical information for potential visitors

Tourism Ireland has released a new, practical video called “All About the Island of Ireland” – specially created to help prospective holidaymakers from around the world to plan their visit to Ireland.

Tourism Ireland’s latest film is a fun Ireland ‘cheat sheet’ with some great tips for those who are Ireland-bound. It covers information from what to pack for the trip, to how to get around the island. It outlines both international and regional airports, as well as ferry services. The video also outlines the currency, language, weather and electricity specifics of the island.
