Tourism Ireland launches online film promoting ’10 Titanic Things to Do in Belfast’

Tourism Ireland has launched a new online film, ’10 Titanic Things to Do in Belfast’, specially created to highlight the iconic ship’s connection with Belfast and Northern Ireland and to encourage people around the world to come and find out more about the Titanic story.

Tourism Ireland’s short, fast-paced film reminds prospective visitors around the world that the famous ship was “designed, built and launched in Belfast” and urges them to “get closer to the Titanic with these 10 Titanic things to do in Belfast”. It features Titanic Belfast and the SS Nomadic, as well as special experiences like a ‘Segway Titanic Tour’ and a ‘Titanic Dinner’ in Rayanne House.



Niall Gibbons, CEO of Tourism Ireland, said: “Our film celebrates the legacy of Titanic and its unique link to Belfast. We are capitalising on the huge interest that exists among people everywhere in the iconic ship, continuing to build the recognition of Belfast as its home and encouraging them to come and experience the city, its Titanic legacy and maritime heritage at first-hand.”

The ’10 Titanic things to do in Belfast’ film will also be promoted via Tourism Ireland’s other social media platforms – with its Facebook fans (3.4 million fans worldwide) and Twitter followers (324,000+), and on its YouTube channel.
