SPANISH golfers will want to pack their clubs for a trip to Limerick, as the golf course at Adare Manor will be featured on a Spanish TV show.
Spanish TV channel Teledeporte recently sent a two-person crew to film Adare Manor and Dromoland Castle in Clare for a show called Hola Golf.
The golf show will premiere this fall to an audience of around 15,000 Spanish viewers.
The TV program crew were invited to film in Limerick and Clare by Tourism Ireland and Fáilte Ireland.
Tourism Ireland’s Head of Spain, Susan Bolger, said: “Tourism Ireland have been delighted to invite the Teledeporte team to come and film in the Mid West for their Hola Golf programme.
“It’s a great way to showcase this part of Ireland and our superb golf, inspiring Spanish golfers to come and experience the destination for themselves,” said Ms Bolger.
“Golf is the world’s largest sports travel market and one that Tourism Ireland is committed to growing. A key message from our golf promotions is the Ryder Cup taking place at Adare Manor in 2027,” Ms Bolger said.
Tourism Ireland is undertaking an extensive program of promotional activities in Spain this autumn.
Advertising and shows like this are a key part of the program, to encourage travelers to Spain to put the island of Ireland on their future holiday wish list.
Spain is the fifth largest market for overseas tourism to the island of Ireland.
In 2019, the country welcomed 431,000 Spanish visitors with revenue generated from Spanish visitors that year amounting to €218 million.
In total in 2019, Tourism Ireland welcomed 11.3 million overseas visitors to the island of Ireland, generating revenue of over €5.9 billion.
