From the real life Westeros to a coastal route chosen by Lonely Planet as its favourite place, Tourism Ireland invites the world to come and visit Northern Ireland
Tourism Ireland has unveiled a new online video – titled "Great Days Out Around Northern Ireland". Full of great trip ideas, the video was created to encourage potential visitors to start planning their holiday or short break to Northern Ireland.
It is encouraging people everywhere to escape to a place where you can visit the real-life Westeros, breathe the fresh sea air along a coastal route that Lonely Planet chose as its favourite place in the world, or take in a round or two on the world’s number one golf course. It features places like Titanic Belfast, the Marble Arch Global Geopark, and the Mournes, as well as the walled city of Derry.
The film is being promoted to potential visitors and fans of Ireland through Tourism Ireland’s social platforms, including Facebook (around 4.23 million fans worldwide), Twitter (495,000 followers) and YouTube.
