'Have you a story to tell?' offers you the opportunity to send us news about your product or event, which we will then share with our Tourism Ireland colleagues overseas. In turn, they may share it with our extensive network of travel trade, media contacts and with consumers through our various e-zines, social media channels and on Ireland.com.
We are looking for quirky stories that will capture the imagination of potential visitors to the island of Ireland, stories that will bring to life the prospect of a fun and engaging holiday experience in the island of Ireland. Have you been awarded any accolades? Do you have some special seasonal recipes to share with our Facebook fans? Are there any myths and legends associated with your product? Did one of your guests catch the biggest fish this season? Did you have an extra special VIP guest that you can tell us about?

For Submissions Received
We will share your story with our Tourism Ireland overseas colleagues where relevant. In turn, they may share it with our network of travel trade, media contacts and with consumers through our various e-zines, social media channels and on Ireland.com
We are not in a position to liaise directly with contributors, but will credit you in the following ways if your content is used across Tourism Ireland’s social media platforms:
- For video content, we will provide a YouTube link to the video in question, driving traffic to your YouTube channel. In the posts themselves, we will tag your social media account or reference the owner where appropriate.
- For general web content such as an article or listicle, we will include a link to the page, plus a reference within the tweet to your company name and/or the handle for your corporate Twitter account.
- For imagery, please note that we will require all imagery to be supplied without watermarks and for the desired copyright line to be included in the body of the email itself. NB: We do not share submitted imagery on a regular basis, as we source imagery from the Tourism Ireland image bank, or retweet imagery sourced organically on Twitter.
