Ireland – can you afford not to go?
corey says…Hats off to the folks who write the subject line of Tourism Ireland’s email blasts. Yesterday’s subject line read “Ireland – can you afford not to go?” I must admit, it got my attention…it REALLY got my attention.
I clicked! I was ready for some big sale. Maybe cheap airfare. Maybe a cutthroat deal on a tour. Maybe a five-star castlestay for under $500. Maybe some secret plan by the Irish government to woo weak dollar weary Americans (US). Nope, just the usual deals they feature on the page.
Talk about a disappointment. The email did more to focus on the features of the Discover Ireland website, which makes our list of Best Websites for Dreaming About Ireland, but come on, if they’re going to tempt us with lines about not being able to afford NOT to go, they really need to deliver.
They did have an offer for a cultural discount pass…which mostly has 2-for-1 coupons, but that’s been available year-round for a while now. You can have a look at http://www.shamrock.org/broadcast08/April08.1/
Alas, if I hear of some truly astounding deals, I’ll be sure to let you know.
