Four Spanish travel journalists were exploring Ireland’s Ancient East recently, as guests of Tourism Ireland and Fáilte Ireland.
The journalists represent various Spanish publications, including a lifestyle magazine, national and regional newspapers, as well as popular websites, with a combined audience of almost 24.5m readers.
The group’s itinerary included the Titanic Experience Cobh, the Jameson Distillery in Midleton, the Waterford Museum of Treasures and the House of Waterford Crystal. They also cycled along the Waterford Greenway, on the stretch between Durrow and Dungarvan, explored Dungarvan and stopped at the Gaeltacht in Ring.
“Tourism Ireland was delighted to invite these travel writers to visit Ireland’s Ancient East,” said Barbara Wood, Tourism Ireland’s Manager in Spain. “The articles they write when they return home will be read by millions of people.
“In 2018, we welcomed around 443,000 Spanish arrivals to Ireland. Tourism Ireland is undertaking an extensive programme of promotional activity once again in 2019, to continue to grow Spanish visitor numbers.”
