Ireland- the Movie

Tourism Ireland has created a new online film to highlight some of the many unique locations our 


international visitors can enjoy right around the island of Ireland.
 Titled "Getting to know the island of Ireland", the video was created to give potential visitors a taste of Ireland and a glimpse into the wonderful and unique personalities of the different destinations they can discover here on one trip – from the Wild Atlantic Way and Northern Ireland, to Ireland’s Ancient East, Belfast and Dublin.

Murray picks Redbreast

Irish Distillers has been honoured with a top accolade in Jim Murray’s annual Whisky Bible 2018


. Now in its 15th year of publication, the Whisky Bible contains tasting notes for over 4,600 whiskies and whiskeys from all over the world.
Irish Distiller’s Redbreast 21 Year Old Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey was named the world’s second-best whisk(e)y narrowly losing out Colonel EH Taylor 4 Grain Bottled in Bond Aged 12 Years. 
Scoring a near perfect 97/100, Murray, a world-renowned whisky and whiskey expert, described t
he Redbreast 21 as “one of the most wonderful noses on this planet” which helps make it “one of the world’s most beautiful and iconic whiskeys”. This placement is the best result for an Irish entrant in Whisky Bible history and only the second time an Irish whiskey made the top three, the first time was in the 2016 Bible when Irish Distillers’ Midleton Dair Ghaelach placed third.

Field of Screams

Farmaphobia, one of Ireland’s largest and longest-running scare attractions – and the country’s only dedicated ‘Scream Park’ – returns to Causey Farm on Friday, October 13th, with 5 diverse haunts designed to terrify, taunt, and get your adrenaline pumping.
 To date, over 80,000 visitors have braved such chilling experiences as the Field of Screams, Mutation Morgue, and Dead and Breakfast, and 2017’s programme is expected to be bigger and bolder than ever.
Speaking in anticipation of this year’s event, Farmaphobia founder Deirdre Murtagh said, “This year’s event will bring to life everyone’s greatest fears, with the return of old favourites as well as our brand new House of Dolls attraction. From the moment you arrive, everything is designed to test your nerves and push you to your limit.”
“Drawing from myths and legends to Hollywood classics and those childhood fears that never quite leave us, Farmaphobia is the ultimate Halloween night out. There’s something for everyone, but it’s not for the faint of heart!”
New for 2017, House of Dolls will turn your childhood dreams into nightmares. Our demented dollies have been waiting patiently for their new playmates, and there’s no point in crying out for mammy – these adorable deplorables might take it personally if you try to leave.
Farmaphobia opens from Friday, October 13th, until the grand finale on Halloween night. Tickets from €18 are available now from

Irish in Offenbach

Twenty-nine tourism companies from Ireland travelled to Offenbach, near Frankfurt, this week to take part in a B2B workshop and networking event with leading German tour 


operators. The event was organised by Tourism Ireland, in a bid to grow visitor numbers from Germany, our third-largest tourism market, in 2018 and beyond.
 Pictured are Patrick Diamond, Irish National Stud & Gardens; Petra Schickling, Abbey Group; Svenja Bassen, JacTravel; Denise Quinn, Tourism Ireland; Úna Young, Select Hotels of Ireland; Zoë Redmond, Tourism Ireland; and Bernadette O' Carroll, Irish Welcome Tours.
 The delegation from Ireland – which included hotels and B&Bs, visitor attractions, coach operators and destination management companies – met with German, Swiss and Austrian tour operators, in a bid to convince the influential travel professionals in attendance to include the island of Ireland in their holiday programmes for 2018. Given that travel agents and tour operators continue to be an important booking channel for German holidaymakers, a key element of Tourism Ireland’s strategy is to work closely with the travel trade – both online and offline – in Germany.
