The Irish Caravan and Camping Council have partnered with Tourism Ireland to showcase Motorhome holidaying in approved Irish caravan and camping parks.

The iconic and world renowned Kerrygold Brand and the German Caravanning Industry Association have teamed up for an ‘on pack’ promotion in the German Marketplace. This promotion will see 20 million Kerrygold cheese and butter packages carrying the promotion over the next couple of months. There are 10 motorhome trips for two people travelling to Ireland with Irish Ferries to be won. The lucky winners will overnight in Roscrea, Doolin, Tralee, Caherdaniel, Dungarvan and Wicklow at Failte Ireland registered Irish Caravan and Camping Council member parks for two nights.

The promotion will give the Irish Tourism Industry a massive boost for the 2016/17 season in Germany, which has seen strong growth year on year for park operators.

On Easter Saturday Carola Birkholz, a freelance travel journalist arrived to Ireland to drive the route and overnight in each of the participating parks. Ms Birkholz is the project lead with Caravanning Informations GmbH(CIG) and will highlight the Ireland promotion in the German media . Last night she met with the Irish Caravan and Camping Council Chairman Mark Knowles and Vice Chairman Con Quill in Dungarvan to brief them on her journey and explain the magnitude of the promotion in the German Market. Carola was very complimentary of the welcome she and her partner Martin received and the travel through the Irish countryside. Sipping a craft beer and enjoying the Irish hospitality as the sun set over Dungarvan Bay is one of the many experiences we hope will feature in her articles about Ireland.
