German media cruise Shannon

Leading travel journalists and influencers from Germany have been visiting Ireland this week, cruising on the River Shannon – as guests of Tourism Ireland, Fáilte Ireland and 


German cruising tour operator, Le Boat.
 Pictured are  Sonja Gurries, n-tv (television news channel); Peggy Günther, Die Zeit (national newspaper); Holger Leue, photographer and author for; and YouTuber Matthias Morr, at Clonmacnoise.
The visiting group included a popular YouTube cruise personality, a photographer and travel journalists, with a combined audience of about 4.8 million readers – or potential German holidaymakers for Ireland. They were here to find out more about cruising holidays on the Shannon and its tributaries and to experience at first-hand the spectacular scenery and the wealth of things to see and do in this part of Ireland.
They cruised from Carrick-on-Shannon to Athlone, stopping off in Dromod in Co Leitrim, Tarmonbarry in Co Roscommon and Lanesborough in Co Longford. They visited Athlone Castle and Clonmacnoise and also enjoyed a golf lesson at Athlone Golf Club.
“Tourism Ireland was delighted to invite this group of travel journalists and influencers to visit Ireland,” said Zoë Redmond, Tourism Ireland’s Manager Central Europe. “Fact-finding visits like this are a really effective way for us to get positive exposure for cruising on the Shannon and for Ireland, through the media in Germany – showcasing cruising holidays and the superb tourism experiences on offer in this part of Ireland to a huge audience of 4.8 million potential German holidaymakers.”
