The Cliffs of Moher will feature in a 45-minute documentary, Glamorous Ireland, that will air today to a huge Chinese audience.
A crew from China Central Television (CCTV-4) visited Ireland in May, to film the documentary. Filming took place at various locations around Ireland, including the spectacular Cliffs.
The resulting programme – highlighting our beautiful landscape, arts and crafts, as well as Irish society and family life – will be seen by an estimated 80 million Chinese around the world. CCTV-4 is the only Chinese channel with a global reach.
A key element of Tourism Ireland’s promotional activity in China, to grow our share of this rapidly-growing tourism market, involves working with the media to generate positive publicity and raise awareness of the island of Ireland.
Niall Gibbons, CEO of Tourism Ireland, said, “With an audience of about 80 million viewers, the Glamorous Ireland documentary is the kind of publicity that money simply could not buy and is an excellent way of showcasing the Cliffs of Moher and Ireland to potential Chinese holidaymakers.
Tourism Ireland has offices in Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou and Chengdu. As well as working closely with Chinese media, the organisation also undertakes co-operative promotions with key partners, including airlines and the travel trade.
