Journalist and photographer Sébastien Desurmont is here to research an article for Géo, a monthly magazine with around 4.3 million readers, or potential French holidaymakers for Ireland. His busy itinerary included Cork city, West Cork and Clonakilty Distillery, Black Donkey Brewing in Co Roscommon, the Craft Village in the walled city of Derry, as well as Windmill Lane Studio and MoLi in Dublin. He also flew to Inis Mór from Connemara Airport, where he checked out the famous Aran Island sweaters and Bláth na Mara seaweed.
“Tourism Ireland was delighted to invite a journalist from Géo magazine to visit Ireland this week,” said Monica MacLaverty, Tourism Ireland’s Manager Southern Europe. “His article and photos will be seen and read by around 4.3 million French travellers – inspiring them to come and discover the destination for themselves.”
Monica MacLaverty continued: “France is one of the top four markets for tourism to Ireland. Tourism Ireland will roll out an extensive and targeted programme of promotional activity again in 2020, to continue to grow French visitor numbers and, in particular, to encourage more of them to come and explore our regions and less-visited attractions during the off-peak season.
