Their articles will be seen and read by over 14 million people around France, helping to raise awareness of the many things to see and do on a holiday in Northern Ireland.

“France is one of the top markets for tourism to Northern Ireland and Tourism Ireland has a busy promotional programme under way right now – to showcase Northern Ireland and continue to grow French visitor numbers in 2017. We are promoting the Causeway Coastal Route, as well as other iconic experiences like the walled city of Derry and Titanic Belfast. With our spectacular scenery, world-class visitor attractions and good value accommodation, Northern Ireland truly is a ‘must see’ destination. Our message is that there has never been a better time to come and visit Northern Ireland.”
