Emirates magazine editors at Powerscourt
THE editors of three popular lifestyle magazines in the UAE have been visiting Wicklow and Ireland this week, as guests of Tourism Ireland and Fáilte Ireland. The aim of the trip is to highlight Ireland’s superb luxury tourism offering – from five star resorts and spas, to superb high end shopping – to their readers in the UAE.
The journalists – who have a combined readership of more than 310,000 people – will write all about Ireland’s luxury tourism experiences in their articles upon their return.
One of the highlights of their time here was an overnight stay, spa experience and dinner at the Powerscourt Hotel in Enniskerry. They also visited Powerscourt House and Gardens and enjoyed lunch in the Powerscourt Golf Club.
‘Tourism Ireland was delighted to invite these influential magazine editors to visit Wicklow and Ireland, to sample some of our luxury tourism experiences at first-hand,’ said Aisling McDermott, Tourism Ireland’s manager, Asia & Middle East. ‘Fact-finding visits like this provide an excellent opportunity to showcase Ireland through the media in the UAE – highlighting our rich culture and heritage, our boutique hotels and luxury resorts and not forgetting our luxury shopping and spa experiences.’
