Killaloe and Ballina Promote Waterfront Locations

2nd March 2012
Killaloe and Ballina Promote Waterfront Locations

#INLAND – Killaloe and Ballina have been taken the opportunity to have a Discover Day on April 29th 2012. Local business has a key role to play in raising awareness of the tourism assets of Killaloe & Ballina to local people. The Discover Day aims to facilitate them to do that to a wider audience.

A committee of local business people and voluntary groups, chaired by Doug Hyde of Satyma has been working to compile the content for the brochure for the Discover Killaloe & Ballina day; "Businesses are giving a taste of the services and facilities to customer for free on the 29th April. Once local people better understand the unique tourism, recreational and retail products on offer in Killaloe & Ballina the better able we will be to keep tourists and business in this area."

Facilitated by Waterways Ireland, Fáilte Ireland, Shannon Development and Clare and North Tipperary County Councils the group already has information on visitor attractions, water activities, arts and crafts, face painting, live music, a historical walking tour of Killaloe & Portumna, boat trips and other land and water activities.

Businesses still wishing to get involved should contact Doug Hyde of Satyma on [email protected] or Katrina Mc Girr Waterways Ireland on [email protected] on or before the 7th March 2012 to be included in the brochure for free.

The Discover Killaloe & Ballina initiative is part of a broader campaign to develop and promote Ireland's Lakelands and Inland Waterways which aims to significantly boost visitor numbers to the Lakeland regions over the next three years.
