Tourism Ireland’s 2018 ‘Home of Champions’ campaign kicked off in April, during the US Masters. The ad has also been airing on the Golf Channel during other Major championships and around relevant TV shows. It aims to remind American golfers about our fantastic golf courses where our champions – including Rory McIlroy, Pádraig Harrington, Graeme McDowell and Darren Clarke – honed and perfected their skills.

Promoting golf holidays on the island of Ireland is a major focus for Tourism Ireland in the United States.

Alison Metcalfe, Tourism Ireland’s Head of North America, said: “Tourism Ireland has an extensive marketing programme under way this year, to highlight our world-class golf and encourage more Americans to consider a golfing vacation on the island of Ireland. Our ‘Home of Champions’ campaign has already been seen by millions of viewers – or potential golf holidaymakers for Ireland. Our message is that Ireland offers American golfers the complete package – with some of the very best links golf in the world, stunning scenery and the warmest of welcomes.”

Earlier this month, a programme called Golf Advisor Roundtrip Ireland – presented by Matt Ginella – aired on the Golf Channel. The show highlighted some of our top courses – including Waterville, Adare Manor and Royal Portrush – as well as our spectacular scenery.
