Top German Travel Journalists Cruise Around Ireland

Leading travel journalists and influencers from Germany have been visiting Ireland, cruising on the River Shannon as guests of Tourism Ireland, Fáilte Ireland and German cruising tour operator, Le Boat.

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.

“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,” said Zoë Redmond, manager, Central Europe, Tourism 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.
