    Championing Dublin to Overseas Visitors

    Championing Dublin to Overseas Visitors
    New Dublin Champions celebrate completing the programme

    Over 40 front line tourism representatives from across the city and county were honoured last evening as ‘Dublin Champions’ at a ceremony at Teeling’s Distillery, and are now fully armed to help visitors uncover some of Dublin’s hidden stories and experiences.
    The group were recognised for completing the Dublin Champions Programme, a new initiative, developed by Fáilte Ireland to ensure visitors to Dublin receive an excellent experience and are provided with up to date information related to what is happening in Dublin. The Dublin Champions Programme has been running since May 2016 and to date a total of 450 have completed the programme.
    Before being honoured at a reception at Teeling’s Whiskey the group uncovered even more hidden gems around the city as they enjoyed a walking tour of the city stopping off at The Brazen Head, Marsh’s Library and St John’s Lane Church.
    Speaking about the initiative, Mark Rowlette from Fáilte Ireland’s Dublin Team said – 

    “This initiative is going from strength to strength since its inception earlier last year. To put it simply, it’s all about championing the knowledge and enthusiasm that front of house staff has for their city.  Visitors rely on the recommendations and advice given to them, so making sure that front-facing staff across Dublin businesses is delivering better visitor experiences to their guests and to promote to tourists all that can be experienced in Dublin city and county.  This is really key to the success of this programme.”
