Nature tourism and Irish film

Brereton, Pat orcid logoORCID: 0000-0003-1681-7202 (2006) Nature tourism and Irish film. Irish Studies Review, 14 (4). pp. 407-420. ISSN 1469-9303

This article provides a historical overview and reading of seminal Irish film from the perspective of nature tourism. Within Irish cultural studies, tourism is frequently equated with an overly romantic image of the island, which has been used to sell the country abroad. However, using notions like the tourist gaze and taking on board influential debates around space/place, one can posit a more progressive environmental vision of nature and landscape in our readings of film.
