New Tourism Ireland video gives prospective visitors the inside track on how to make the most of Ireland on a budget

 Tourism Ireland has created a new online film giving potential visitors some useful tips on how to save money – and what they can do for free – during a visit to the island of Ireland.

Magnificent museums, astounding natural wonders and millennia of history and heritage – and all for free! Tourism Ireland’s latest film, titled "Ten Top Travel Hacks for Ireland", invites prospective visitors to come and explore the island of Ireland, while making the most of their money. Whether it’s travel deals, low-cost heritage sites and cultural experiences, free festivals or some simple ways to get the best food on a dime, this video shows how to enjoy Ireland without breaking the bank. 



The film is being promoted through Tourism Ireland’s social platforms, including Facebook (almost 4 million fans worldwide), Twitter (403,000 followers) and YouTube.
