9th March 2016
Categories: Our News
New Mind | tellUs is delighted to announce the addition of its first client in Ireland, Love Connemara to its destination portfolio and the launch of a new site, www.loveconnemara.com.
Described as a 'savage beauty' by Oscar Wilde, Connemara is situated on the west coast of Ireland and has been a popular tourist destination for over 200 years. Highlights include Kylemore Abbey, Connemara National Park, the Twelve Bens (Beanna Beola) mountain range, a stunning coastline and the famous Connemara pony. Connemara’s natural boundaries have helped to preserve many of its Irish traditions such as its Irish music, song and dance. The Irish language (Gaeilge) is still spoken daily in large parts of the area and Connemara has one of the last pockets of native Irish speakers in Ireland.
The new website aims to be the main go-to destination resource for Connemara, encouraging more visitors, longer stays and more return trips. As well as assisting visitors with their travel plans, they are provided with rich, accurate and compelling content, available on a range of media.
By adopting the winning Tourism Essentials template approach from New Mind | tellUs combined with a responsive design, Connemara will achieve the world-class positioning that the destination deserves, on time and within budget.
Terry O'Toole, Managing Director of Love Connemara comments "After a lot of research and evaluation of the many destination marketing specialists worldwide, Love Connemara selected New Mind | tellUs. Our project had very particular requirements in mind. The system we were going to choose needed to be fast, responsive, have the ability for our members to log in and edit their own content, have a range of commercial options to market to our members, ability to display imagery well, be SEO friendly, be value for money but above all it must be a joy for visitors to use.
New Mind | tellUs has far exceeded our expectations. Feedback from our members has been excellent and the team here at Love Connemara love just the system itself and the team at New Mind | tellUs are a joy to work with. Now that the system is in place we can focus on creating great content and present this fantastic region to the world. We’re very excited to be the first in Ireland to use this system and look forward to working with New Mind | tellUs in presenting Connemara to a global audience."
Andy Abram, Director of New Mind | tellUs comments "We’re really excited to have Terry and his team on board with our first project in Ireland. Connemara is a fantastic destination with huge potential for growth in both the domestic Irish market and with UK visitors. It will be interesting to see the success of the site and this thriving destination as they move to a dedicated e-tourism platform and responsive web solution."
