WATCH: New Tourism Ireland video shows the beauty of Ireland in Autumn

Sure it's a lovely little country if you could only put a roof on it.

The famous Christy Moore once said in his classic song Lisdoonvarna, "summer comes around each year, we go there and they come here."

However, May seems like a long time ago now and you really know you're heading into autumn when you can hear Premier League adverts coming through your television screen and there is talks about All-Ireland Semi-Finals doing the rounds.

Culture-filled festivals, castles that display our amazing heritage and cities waiting to be explored in the crisp evening air. These are just a few reasons why autumn is special here in Ireland.

Tourism Ireland has created a new online film to remind travellers around the world who’re now planning their last minute short break or holiday that autumn in Ireland is simply unmissable.

Titled "Autumn on the island of Ireland", the video was created to boost late-season travel to the island of Ireland from around the world and to encourage potential visitors to come and find out what makes Ireland so special in autumn.

The video takes a trip throughout the country from the capital of Ireland to the home of the cats in Kilkenny to the People's Republic of Cork before heading north towards Belfast.

The September to December period usually yields as much as 30% of Ireland’s annual overseas tourism business.

The leaves may be changing but one thing that will remain the same in this country is its picturesque scenery and here is the video to prove it.
