German travel writers visit North Tipperary

Five travel writers from various German media outlets – including regional newspapers, a special interest magazine and a travel blog – have been visiting Tipperary and Ireland, as guests of Tourism Ireland and Fáilte Ireland. They have a combined audience of almost 380,000 readers.

 

One of the highlights of the group’s time here was a visit to Brookfield Farm in Coolbawn, where they sampled the farm’s honey.

Peter Nash, Tourism Ireland’s Manager for Central Europe, said: “We’re delighted to welcome these influential travel writers to Tipperary and Ireland. Fact-finding visits like this are a really effective way for us to get positive exposure for Ireland through the media in Germany – helping us to spread the word about the many great things to see and do here. There is really no substitute for being able to come here and experience what Ireland has to offer at first-hand.”

 

Germany is the third-largest source of visitors to the island of Ireland and one of the largest outbound travel markets in the world. 2018 was the eighth consecutive year of growth for Irish tourism from Germany, when we welcomed almost 818,000 German arrivals, delivering almost €500 million to the economy.

Peter Nash continued: “2018 was the best year ever for tourism from Germany to Ireland, when we welcomed around 818,000 German arrivals, up +12.6% on 2017. Tourism Ireland has an extensive programme of promotions under way in Germany again in 2019, to build on that success and, in particular, to encourage more German holidaymakers to explore our regions and less-visited attractions, during the shoulder and off-season months.”
