Waterford Businesses Want Fair Pricing at Tall Ships

27th April 2011
Waterford Businesses Want Fair Pricing at Tall Ships
Waterford's business and tourism leaders have demanded "fair pricing" in the city during the Tall Ships Races this summer, The Irish Times reports.
Reports have circulated that local hotels and other businesses were planning to raise their prices for the half-million visitors expected to descend upon the south coast city at the end of June.
But Fáilte Ireland, Waterford Chamber of Commerce and Mayor Mary Roche are backing a fair-price initiative, urging the city's many shops, cafes, restaurants, bars and tourist attractions to offer value for money.
Mayor Roche said the hosting of the Tall Ships Races was "a priceless opportunity" to showcase Waterford on an international stage.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
