New Tourism Ireland video highlights the wonderful locations visitors can enjoy around the island of Ireland

Staggering cliffs and salt-swept islands, legend-filled landscapes and thrilling road trips … from top to toe, the island of Ireland is packed with fantastic experiences

Tourism Ireland has created a new online film to highlight some of the many wonderful and unique locations our international visitors can enjoy right around the island of Ireland.

Titled "Getting to know the island of Ireland", the video was created to give potential visitors a taste of Ireland and a glimpse into the wonderful and unique personalities of the different destinations they can discover here on one trip – from the Wild Atlantic Way and Northern Ireland, to Ireland’s Ancient East, Belfast and Dublin. 


The film is being promoted through Tourism Ireland’s social platforms, including Facebook (more than 4 million fans worldwide), Twitter (440,500+ followers) and YouTube.
