A group of media and social media influencers from Qatar and Australia have arrived in Ireland via Qatar Airway's new flights from Doha to Dublin for a press trip to learn more about two of Fáilte Ireland’s major tourism brands: the Wild Atlantic Way and Dublin – A Breath of Fresh Air.
A tailored visit has been designed by Fáilte Ireland in conjunction with Tourism Ireland to promote Ireland to the Qatar influencers that included Mrs Universe 2014 Yezenia Navarro; model and fashion influencer Nuha Al Samarae; and Qatar food blogger Rachel Morris; and four Australian media to get a deeper knowledge of Ireland for their followers and readers.
While on the Wild Atlantic Way the group spent time in Galway taking part in a walking tour of the city with Brian Nolan of Galway Walking Tours, having spent the previous evening at the g Hotel with Suzanne Meade and lunch at Kai Café.
Ciara Sugrue, head of international publicity with Fáilte Ireland, welcomed the group to Galway and said:
“This press trip will provide fantastic exposure for Galway and seeks to capitalise on the new Qatar Airways service into Ireland. We were delighted to be given an opportunity to showcase the stunning natural beauty of the Wild Atlantic Way and Galway city to these influencers and journalists.
"New routes into Ireland - such as the Doha to Dublin service provides visitors with an opportunity to experience the strong choices offered in the region."
