Irish superstar Pierce Brosnan has released a video in which he showcases and marvels in the beauty of Co Kerry.
The James Bond legend teamed up with Tourism Ireland to create the video that will have you longing to visit ‘the Kingdom’.
Tourism Ireland’s slogan for this campaign is ‘Fill your heart with Ireland’.
Brosnan’s father came from Kerry and the county holds a special place in the actor’s heart.
Brosnan said: “What’s not to love about Ireland?
“This tiny island that has shown the greatest gift of poetry and storytelling.
“I love the Kerry coastline, I love the Ring of Kerry. My father Tom Brosnan was a Kerry man so I try to go back there as often as I can.
“What do I miss about Ireland? It’s the people. The sheer stamina and life force of Irish people from this great, beautiful landscape.
“I’m a Navan man, County Meath. I left Ireland when I was a boy, when I was 11. So over the many decades now going back, there’s always something great to discover.”
Brosnan’s words are spoken passionately over footage and images of some of the stunning scenery in Co Kerry, including the beaches, rugged coastline and rolling hills.
It also includes footage of people enjoying some of Ireland’s street musicians.
Co Kerry is renowned as one of the most beautiful parts of Ireland. It is of course home to the 100 mile road tour known as the Ring of Kerry, as mentioned by Brosnan.
The Ring of Kerry features some of the most stunning scenery in Ireland and is part of the Wild Atlantic Way, which is a favourite drive for tourists and locals that stretches along the West coast from the north to south of Ireland.
Take a look at the video below.
