Escape to Dingle County Kerry on the south west coast of Ireland without leaving your armchair, with Dingle Slea Head Tours
One entrepreneurial travel company owner in Dingle in Ireland has found some respite from the lack of overseas visitors in his area. Rory Brosnan, owner of award-winning tour company Dingle Slea Head Tours, has used the lull in customers to reshape his business to ensure that when it is safe to travel again, Ireland is foremost in travelers minds.
Rory has created a series of ‘virtual tours’ of Dingle and the West Coast of Ireland. The idea has been welcomed by Tourism Ireland and what was intended to be a one-off experience has now been expanded to become a series which will be available to purchase from Dingle Slea Head Tours’ website. Watch the trailer below!

Rory Brosnan commented, "2020 has been a really tough year for the travel industry. A large proportion of visitors to Ireland come from the USA and with travel restrictions in place, this has meant that footfall is down 100% in many cases. "
"We quickly realized that Covid-19 wasn’t going anywhere fast and to safeguard the business and the tourism industry in Ireland, that something had to change. If people can’t come to Ireland, then we thought we could take Ireland to them."
"The video series showcases all the natural beauty of the west coast of Ireland, presented by a couple of our wonderful guides, who describe the areas we visit with great humor and a wealth of knowledge."
"This is not going to singlehandedly save the Irish tourist industry, but we have to keep the idea of Ireland alive in these tough times and give people something to dream about."
