PHIL SPENCER is best known for helping people buy homes on Channel 4’s Location Location Location, but he’s about to turn his hand to encouraging Britons to holiday in Galway.
Spencer is currently working with Tourism Ireland to produce four online films, one of which concentrates on the Wild Atlantic Way, a tourism trail that runs from Donegal to Cork, taking in, along the way, much of Connemara and west Galway. The film features footage of Galway, and includes well-known sites like the Spanish Arch. It also includes Kinvara and the Aran Islands.
The films are being promoted on the website of Classic FM, where Spencer presents a regular show. They can be viewed on http://promo.classicfm.co.uk/tourism-ireland. The campaign is expected to reach about 6.5 million people across Britain.
