'Clodagh's Ireland' to promote tourism

Celebrity chef Clodagh McKenna’s is showcasing Ireland in a new food and travel mini-series, which will air on ITV this month and next month to around 2 million people acrossclodgh0921 Britain. Filming is taking place here this week and is supported by Tourism Ireland and Fáilte Ireland.

 Pictured are  Producer Tamsin Eames; John Fitzgerald, Atlantic Irish Seaweed; celebrity chef Clodagh McKenna; Des Burke, Tourism Ireland; cameraman Matt Sullivan; and soundman Robbie Elder, during filming for Clodagh’s Ireland, on Derrynane Beach, in Co Kerry.
Called Clodagh’s Ireland, the mini-series includes five six-minute segments – including one live segment – which will be broadcast on ITV’s This Morning and ITV’s John and Lisa's Weekend Kitchen.

 

Clodagh’s Ireland will showcase our delicious local produce, stunning landscapes, soft adventure activities and wellness experiences, as well as our warm welcome. Viewers will see Clodagh visit Dick Mack’s and Pax House in Dingle; and enjoy activities like horse-riding and seaweed foraging, while in Kerry. The mini-series will include a cookery segment from Derrynane Beach. Filming is also taking place in Cork – at places like the English Market, Shandon Sweets and Midleton Farmers’ Market – and viewers will see Clodagh present cookery segments from the Trident Hotel Kinsale and Ballymaloe Cookery School.
 
Julie Wakley, Tourism Ireland’s Head of Great Britain, said: “Tourism Ireland is delighted to support the filming of this mini-series, ‘Clodagh’s Ireland’. With around 2 million people across Britain set to watch each episode, it’s a great way to shine a spotlight on our wonderful culinary offering and spectacular scenery, as well as our fantastic outdoor activities. It will help ensure that Ireland stays front-of-mind with prospective visitors and remind viewers across Britain that Ireland is a great choice for a ‘foodie’ holiday.”
 
 Publicity and broadcasts like this are a key element of Tourism Ireland’s programme of activity, to keep Ireland front and centre in the minds of future visitors from Britain and elsewhere around the world.
