Tourism Ireland have re-released one of Ireland's most-beloved television ads which features Irish landscapes accompanied by The Cranberries' hit song Dreams.

It doesn't stop there either. Tourism Ireland are sharing an extended four minute director's cut version - featuring never-before-seen footage.

The memorable ad, which shows stunning shots of Irish scenery, first aired in 1996. 

The first ever advertising campaign to highlight Ireland as a tourism destination,  was directed by Sharon Maguire who later directed "Bridget Jones' Diary".  

The campaign was screened in the lead-up to the signing of the Good Friday agreement - which marks its 20th anniversary today.

The ad re-run is to celebrate the 25th anniversary of The Cranberries debut album  Everybody Else is Doing it, So Why Can't We? which featured the global hit Dreams.
