German Media Visit Donegal

Five journalists from Germany representing a national radio station as well as various print and online publications, with a combined audience of 1.3 million people, have been exploring Donegal as guests of Tourism Ireland and Fáilte Ireland.

The group has been following an itinerary to discover some of the many activities and experiences that Donegal has to offer, including hikes of Mount Errigal and Slieve League and visits to Glencolmcille Folk Village, Eddie Doherty’s Handwoven Tweeds, Glenveagh National Park, Fanad Lighthouse and Fort Dunree. The journalists also enjoyed a walk to Glenevin Waterfall and a tour along Malin Head with Wild Alpaca Way.

Nadine Lehmann, Tourism Ireland’s Manager Germany, said: "We were delighted to invite this group of German journalists to explore Donegal. There really is no substitute for being able to come here and experience what Ireland has to offer at first-hand."
