~ Fresh flavours, passionate producers and dishes served with a creative flair – Tourism Ireland reminds prospective visitors that our food is as picture-worthy as our landscapes! ~
Tourism Ireland has created a new online film showcasing the incredible range of delicious dishes and fantastic culinary experiences on offer right around the island of Ireland – which will have our overseas visitors reaching for their camera as soon as the plate reaches the table!
Ireland’s food scene has undergone something of a revolution in recent years. Artisan producers and world-class chefs have been getting creative with our produce, using fresh local ingredients to create incredible flavours. Our international visitors can follow the journey from producer to plate with delicious modern dishes served with a unique Irish twist – and not only do they taste delicious … they look amazing, too!
Titled "Your Guide to Insta-worthy food in Ireland", Tourism Ireland’s video was created to remind people everywhere why Ireland is the perfect choice for a holiday with great food! The message for prospective visitors is that our food isn’t just delicious, carefully prepared and locally sourced – it also happens to be picture perfect! Tourism Ireland is encouraging people everywhere to come and ‘Taste the Island’ and to check out our fantastic food – that looks too good not to snap!
The film is being promoted through Tourism Ireland’s social platforms, including Facebook (more than 4.39 million fans worldwide), Twitter (522,000 followers) and YouTube.
