New Tourism Ireland film highlights some of the best things to see and do in Dublin

Tourism Ireland has created a new online film showcasing some of the very best of Dublin.

Titled ’10 Things to Do in Dublin’, the film has been produced by Tourism Ireland to encourage people around the world to come and visit the city in 2016. It features ten different locations – including areas outside the city such as Howth Head and the Phoenix Park.



Niall Gibbons, CEO of Tourism Ireland, said: “Tourism Ireland is delighted to unveil a new film promoting Dublin. Blending culture, history and scenery, Dublin really is a city that offers something for all our visitors – from the bustle of Temple Bar to the tranquillity of the Phoenix Park. Our film includes beautiful footage – showing Dublin at its very best – which will help entice prospective visitors everywhere to come and visit the city this year.”

The film will be promoted via Tourism Ireland’s social media platforms – with its Facebook fans (3.6 million fans worldwide), Twitter followers (346,000) and on its YouTube channel. It will also be promoted worldwide on Ireland.com (16.6 million visits in 2015).
