A crew from German-language TV station Planet TV were filming in Co. Clare at the end of October, as guests of Tourism Ireland and Fáilte Ireland.
The crew was filming for a documentary called Kulturlandschaften Europas (which means the ‘Cultural Landscapes of Europe’), which will air to around 1.5m German-speaking viewers in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the South Tyrol region in Northern Italy in February 2020.
The documentary will showcase some of Co. Clare’s scenery, its coastline and towns, as well as its culture and heritage. Filming took place at the Burren Food Fayre in Lisdoonvarna, St Tola Irish Goat Cheese Farm, the Aillwee Caves, the Roadside Tavern, the Burren and the Hazel Mountain Chocolate Factory. The crew also had the opportunity to film the Wild Food Walk in Lahinch with Wild Kitchen.
“Tourism Ireland was delighted to invite this TV crew to film in Co. Clare,” said Peter Nash, Tourism Ireland’s Manager for Central Europe. “The episode filmed here will be seen by more than 1.5m German-speaking viewers, or potential holidaymakers for Ireland, shining a spotlight on Co. Clare, the Burren and the Wild Atlantic Way, and inspiring those viewers to put Ireland on their holiday ‘wish list’ for 2020.”
