    Minister Brendan Griffin Meets with Working Group for New Tourism Plan for Dingle Peninsula

    Minister Brendan Griffin Meets with Working Group for New Tourism Plan for Dingle Peninsula

    Minister of State for Tourism and Sport, Brendan Griffin joined with the new Working Group established to progress Fáilte Ireland’s Visitor Experience Development Plan for the Dingle Peninsula as they met  in Brenners Hotel, Dingle.

    The new Visitor Experience Development Plan will ultimately enable continued growth in visitor numbers, dwell time and spend, helping to extend the tourism season and spread business across all parts of the peninsula. Similar plans have been developed successfully for the Skellig Coast and for the Burren and Cliffs of Moher, as well as for Connemara and the Aran islands.

    Minister of State for Tourism and Sport, Brendan Griffin said;

    “I’m delighted to be part of the Working Group for the new Visitor Experience Development Plan for the Dingle Peninsula. Kerry has already benefitted enormously from the Wild Atlantic Way but we need to continue to harness it’s potential and focus on trying to grow and build on that success year on year with new projects and initiatives.”

    With members including Kerry County Council, Údurás Na Gaeltachta and a range of local tourism stakeholders, the Working Group will play an active role in developing and collaboratively guiding the Visitor Experience Development Plan and its implementation. A series of workshops for local tourism businesses, tourism and community group members and interested individuals is also running this week (from 7th-8th February) across the region to pull together stories, ideas, and opportunities that could be used to boost tourism in the area.
