By Dave Simpson

Two Swedish professional golfers visited Ireland last week, playing a number of the island's golf courses and experiencing some of its visitor attractions, as guests of Tourism Ireland, Fáilte Ireland and Tourism NI.

The pro golfers in question were Elina Hagberg and Johan Sköld, and they were joined by Swedish actor, comedian and golf enthusiast Klas Eriksson. Sköld also hosts a weekly Swedish golf talk show called The Tee Party. All three are sharing their experiences in Ireland with their combined Instagram audience of over 350,000 followers.

The aim of their visit was to remind Swedish golfers of Ireland's golf offering, as well as its scenery and experiences.

Their itinerary saw them play Warrenpoint Golf Club, Holywood Golf Club and County Louth Golf Club in Baltray. They visited to the new Game of Thrones Studio Tour in Banbridge and the Waterman House Cookery School in Belfast. The group also took in a Lagan Legends walking tour of the Titanic Quarter and a whiskey tasting experience at Slane Castle.

Statement By Tourism Ireland's Manager For The Nordic Region

Tourism Ireland's manager for the Nordic region, Emer MacDiarmada, stated, "We were delighted to invite Elina, Johan and Klas to come and experience our world-class golf, spectacular scenery and wonderful visitor attractions - who, in turn, are now encouraging their Swedish fans and followers to come and experience all of this for themselves. Their visit is a great way to highlight that Ireland offers some of the very best golf in the world and has something for everyone, from beginner to pro - and that now is the time to book that trip."
