120,000 Canadians read about the Wild Atlantic Way

Published on : Wednesday, May 13, 2015

ENSEMBLE-VACATIONS-MAG-spring-2015-(1)Some 120,000 readers of Ensemble Vacations magazine in Canada are reading all about the spectacular scenery of the Wild Atlantic Way. 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 wonderful 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 in Cloghane 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”.

 

In 2014, almost 8,000 print, online and broadcast articles and stories delivered positive messages about Ireland to potential visitors around the world. Tourism Ireland estimates that this exposure was worth approximately €290 million. 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 to a large audience of potential holidaymakers. Tourism Ireland in Canada undertakes a busy publicity programme each year, to raise the profile of the destination and the many things to see and do on a holiday in Ireland.”

 

Speaking about the importance of the Canadian market for tourism to the island of Ireland, Dana Welch continued: “2014 was the best year ever for Irish tourism from Canada – with visitor numbers increasing by +30% over 2013. And the outlook for 2015 is positive, particularly given that the number of airline seats from Canada is set to increase by +22% in the peak summer months. Our message for Canadian holidaymakers is that the island of Ireland has never been so convenient or more affordable to get to.”
