Clare & Galway In The Spotlight Down Under

The spectacular scenery and rich heritage of counties Clare and Galway will feature in a new TV ad and video – encouraging thousands of Australian travellers to consider Ireland as their holiday destination for 2014.?

The ad and video are being produced by Trafalgar Tours, one of Australia’s major travel companies, which sells holidays to over 200 destinations worldwide.

Invited here by Tourism Ireland, the film crew is in Ireland this week, capturing the footage which will be used to create the TV ad and video. The ad will air on Australian television, and the video will feature on key websites, from October of this year until February 2014 – a key booking period for Australian travellers.

?Footage captured includes the Cliffs of Moher, Bunratty Castle, Barrtrá Seafood Restaurant in Lahinch, Poulnabrone Dolmen, Kinfenora High Crosses, Leamaneh Castle and Ballyvaughan; and Dunguaire Castle, Kinvara, Shop Street and Tig Coilí bar in Galway.

Diane Butler, Tourism Ireland’s manager in Australia, said, “We are delighted to work with Trafalgar on this project – it is a really wonderful opportunity to showcase Clare and Galway and the island of Ireland as a premier destination to a large audience of potential holidaymakers for Ireland.”
