Tourism Ireland has created a new online film to highlight some of the many wonderful locations our international visitors can enjoy around Dublin Bay.
Titled "Top Things to Do Around Dublin Bay", the video gives potential visitors an understanding of the city’s idyllic location on the Irish Sea and how they can take in a great big “breath of fresh air” and combine the best of both urban and coastal getaways. It shows how the horseshoe-shaped bay is peppered with beauty spots, picturesque fishing villages, great cafés, pubs and tranquil walks – all nestled between mountains and sea.
The film is being promoted through Tourism Ireland’s social platforms, including Facebook (more than 4 million fans worldwide), Twitter (451,000 followers) and YouTube
