Canadian travel writers ‘fill their hearts’ with Ireland’s Ancient East!

Published on : Friday, May 10, 2019

Six leading travel writers from Canada have been exploring Ireland’s Ancient East this week, as guests of Tourism Ireland and Fáilte Ireland. The group – which includes representatives of major media outlets like the Toronto Sun and Huffington Post – has a combined audience of hundreds of thousands of readers.

 

The journalists’ action-packed itinerary included Killruddery House & Gardens, Glendalough, Enniscorthy Castle, the Irish Heritage Park, the Dunbrody Famine Ship andKilkenny Castle. They experienced the ancient craft of Shillelagh stick-making – with Liam Kealy, at his premises in the village of Shillelagh. They also explored the Viking Triangle in Waterford and cycled along the Waterford Greenway.

 

Tourism Ireland was delighted to invite these influential travel writers to visit Ireland’s Ancient East,” said Dana Welsh, Tourism Ireland’s Manager in Canada. “The articles they write when they return home will be read by hundreds of thousands of people – so their visit is a really good opportunity to showcase Ireland’s Ancient East to a wide audience of prospective Canadian visitors.

 

“Tourism Ireland undertakes a busy publicity programme around the world each year to raise the profile of the island of Ireland – and visits by influential travel writers like these are a key element of that programme.”
