It provides Tourism Ireland with another great hook to continue to promote Dublin around the world as a ‘must see’ destination.”

 

Tourism Ireland’s promotions to leverage this accolade will include a full-page Dublin ad and a full-page article all about Dublin in the latest National Geographic Traveler;extensive social media activity, including posts on Facebook (Tourism Ireland has 4+ million fans worldwide) and Twitter (about 451,000 followers); as well as a major PR and publicity push to Tourism Ireland’s 20,000 international media contacts (including an article on the organisation’s online press room).
