Some 120,000 readers of Ensemble Vacations magazine in Canada are reading all about the scenery of the Wild Atlantic Way this month.
The current edition of Ensemble Vacations, a glossy lifestyle magazine, includes a four-page spread dedicated to the West of Ireland.
Tourism Ireland invited the author of the article to visit last year. The resulting article – which appears under the headline “Catching craic on the Wild Atlantic Way” – describes “this epic coastal drive”, the Cliffs of Moher and the “rocky beaches and grassy fields” of Co. Clare, as well as the Burren, which is “punctuated with wildflowers, perfect for hiking”.
The article also describes a meal prepared by Burren Fine Wine & Food in Ballyvaughan, as well as the fish in the Burren Smokehouse, which is “as moist, flaky and plump as I could hope for”.
In Co. Kerry, the writer visits the Tinteán Ceoil for a traditional Irish session, where she says that the music is “euphoric”; she describes Dingle as “endearing” and a “pretty place full of colourful row houses with flower boxes out front”.
Dana Welch, Tourism Ireland’s manager Canada, said: “We are delighted with the coverage in the latest edition of Ensemble Vacations magazine, which is an excellent way of showcasing the Wild Atlantic Way.”
