Ire­land in top five on Ger­mans’ ‘wish list’


Bray People - - NEWS -

A PRES­TI­GIOUS travel pub­li­ca­tion show­cas­ing County Wick­low and Ire­land has hit the news­stands in Ger­many, pro­fil­ing the best in hol­i­days here to over 100,000 avid read­ers and po­ten­tial hol­i­day­mak­ers.

Me­rian mag­a­zine is one of the top glossy travel mag­a­zines in Ger­many and this month's edi­tion in­cludes de­tails of the Wick­low Gar­dens Fes­ti­val and Pow­er­scourt Gar­dens, as well as a won­der­ful dou­ble-page spread on Mount Usher Gar­dens in Ash­ford, with great hol­i­day ideas for this part of Ire­land.

Tourism Ire­land fa­cil­i­tated the vis­its of the var­i­ous jour­nal­ists who wrote the fea­tures.

‘We are de­lighted with the cov­er­age in this pub­li­ca­tion,' said Bar­bara Wood, Tourism Ire­land's man­ager in cen­tral Europe. ‘It is an ex­cel­lent way of show­cas­ing Co Wick­low and the is­land of Ire­land and the huge va­ri­ety of things to see and do here to a large au­di­ence of po­ten­tial hol­i­day­mak­ers in Ger­many.

‘ The stun­ning pho­tog­ra­phy cap­tures and com­ple­ments the mes­sages in our spring cam­paign, which is un­der way right now, high­light­ing our spec­tac­u­lar scenery and tap­ping into the fun of hol­i­day­ing here.'

Ger­many is the largest out­bound travel mar­ket in the world, with Ger­mans tak­ing more hol­i­days than any other na­tion­al­ity.

‘Ire­land holds strong ap­peal for Ger­mans,' added Bar­bara, who said that the coun­try ranks at num­ber 5 on Ger­mans' ‘wish list' of places to visit.

Me­rian mag­a­zine in­cludes Pow­er­scourt Gar­dens.
