Statement By Tourism Ireland's Director Of Markets
Siobhan McManamy, Tourism Ireland's director of markets, said, "Tourism Ireland is delighted to collaborate with the Ryder Cup to promote the fact that the 2027 tournament will take place at Adare Manor. The aim of these videos is to remind people that the island of Ireland offers some of the very best golf in the world, as well as spectacular scenery and fantastic experiences. We look forward to working closely with the Ryder Cup, Sport Ireland and Fáilte Ireland to take every opportunity to leverage the tourism potential of this prestigious sporting event."
"Spoiled For Choice"
In the video, golfer Leona Maguire says, "We’re spoiled for choice, we have so many fantastic golf courses - there's so much variety, there's something for everybody. Even if you're not a golfer, there's the food and the hospitality, the music and the culture that goes along with it. Everywhere that I travel in the world, everybody has Ireland on their bucket list."
