Swiss on Roll in Cork

A group of Swiss travel writers has been exploring Cork city and county as guests of Tourism Ireland and Fáilte Ireland. They were here to highlight the Edelweiss Air flight from Zurich to Cork.

Evelyn Hebeisen, Globetrotter Magazin; Jasmina Slacanin, Coopération; Véronique Platschka, Tourism Ireland; and Morgane Schaller, Cabinet de Curiosités, are pictured on Cape Clear Island.

The writers, whose print and online publications have a combined audience of more than 790,000 readers, enjoyed visits to Titanic Experience Cobh, Franciscan Well Brewery, Blackrock Castle Observatory, West Cork Farm Tours in Rosscarbery, as well as Bantry House and Garden. Their itinerary also included night kayaking at Castlehaven Bay with Atlantic Sea Kayaking, a walking tour of Sheep’s Head with Outdoors Ireland; and a food tour with Kinsale Food Tours. The group enjoyed a ferry crossing to Cape Clear Island, where they visited Cape Clear Distillery.

Aubrey Irwin, Tourism Ireland’s Manager for Austria and Switzerland, said: 

“Tourism Ireland was delighted to invite this group of influential travel writers to come and discover some of the many things to see and do in Cork. It was also a great opportunity to highlight the Edelweiss Air flight from Zurich to Cork.”
