Donegal Tourism Ltd
Connecting Donegal on the Wild Atlantic Way – Supported by Donegal County Council
What are our objectives?
Welcome from Chairman of Donegal Tourism Mr. Seamus Neely
Donegal Tourism Limited is dedicated to promoting and marketing County Donegal’s tourism product and reaching our target markets locally, nationally and internationally. Every year Donegal Tourism Ltd develops and implements an extensive online and offline marketing and promotional campaign on behalf of the entire county.
Donegal Tourism Ltd also works to ensure a coordinated approach by a range of agencies and sectoral interests in the work of promoting the county. This year has been a good year for tourism in Donegal with the industry reporting significant increase in business and Fáilte Ireland reporting increases in domestic and foreign visitors to Donegal. 2015 – 2016 will see Donegal Tourism Ltd again leading out on a marketing campaign for the county.
The ‘Go Visit Donegal’ website continues to grow from strength to strength and has been consolidated in marketing efforts to cross promote via other Donegal County Council websites that are used to promote the county e.g. the Donegal Gathering, the Malin Waters and the Donegal Diaspora website. 2016 will see further work carried out on these websites and so there has never been a better time to get your business listed!
The Wild Atlantic Way has been a very positive development for County Donegal and it is a resource that we will work to develop and promote during 2015 and beyond. Donegal County Council and Fáilte Ireland have carried out substantial work in signposting this route. Substantial physical works have also been carried out e.g. road and environmental improvements along the route and at Discovery Points along the route.
Substantial work has also been carried out at the three WAW central points that are situated in this county – Sliabh Liag, Malin Head and Fanad Head Lighthouse. A substantial programme of work was also completed at Inch Levels this year. Work carried out and commenced to date on these projects involve a combined investment of €7.5 million. The development of key infrastructure is and will continue to be of importance in ensuring that this county achieves its full potential as a tourism destination. Other key infrastructure projects in the county include the development of a new marina at Killybegs, the Safe Haven at Bunagee and the mooring facilities at Greencastle.
Donegal Tourism Ltd looks forward to working with all stakeholders to further develop and promote Donegal tourism’s product at home and abroad in the coming years.
