Fáilte Ireland are inviting local tourism businesses, individuals, tourism and community group members, and all other interested parties to help position the Burren and Cliffs of Moher for further growth by becoming involved with the formulation of a new ‘Visitor Experience Development Plan’ for the area. Ultimately, it is envisaged that the resulting plan will ensure continued growth in visitor numbers by extending the tourism season and spreading business across all parts of the region.
Over next the week a series of workshops and ‘drop ins’ will take place. Speaking about the workshops, Fiona Monaghan, Head of Fáilte Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way explained – “Developing visitor experience plans is all about widening and deepening the current visitor experience in the area. This approach, which has already been piloted in the Skellig Region, seeks to increase visitor dwell time and revenue as well as help increase job creation in the local area. However, we cannot do it alone, and local consultation and input is essential if we are to develop a plan that not only works for the visitor, but also works for the local economy.”
