We recently paid a visit to the Discover Ireland Centre, Neil T. Blaney Road, Letterkenny and received a warm welcome from both Davids (David Kenny, Seasonal Travel Advisor and David Leonard, Programme Officer – Wild Atlantic Way) upon arrival at the Centre, where we learned about the positive expectations for a busy Summer ahead in Donegal!
Fáilte Ireland is the National Tourism Development Authority. Their role is to support the tourism industry and work to sustain Ireland as a high-quality and competitive tourism destination. On a national level, Fáilte Ireland promote Ireland as a holiday destination through their domestic marketing campaigns and manage a network of nationwide tourist information centres, such as the Centre in Letterkenny, that provide help and advice for visitors to Ireland.
Letterkenny Chamber and the Wild Atlantic Way Team with Failte Ireland have always enjoyed a collaborative relationship, and welcoming the regional Fáilte Ireland team to our Letterkenny Chamber membership will further enhance the flow of communication between ourselves – and/for our members, and increase our shared voice to support the tourism industry in the North West.
Fáilte Ireland work with state agencies – and representative bodies such as ourselves, at local and national levels, to implement and champion positive and practical strategies that will benefit Donegal tourism and the economy.
We’ve long admired the Fáilte Ireland regional Wild Atlantic Way team and their proactive commitment to delivering for the industry in our region and look forward to working even more closely with the team as they activate the tourism development plans in Donegal and the North West region.
Fáilte Ireland provide a range of practical business supports to help tourism businesses better manage and market their products and services, we will cross promote these valuable resources and events regularly on behalf of Fáilte Ireland and engage with the team on an ongoing basis to work better together for the region.
We are delighted to welcome Joan Crawford, Regional Manager for the Wild Atlantic Way with Failte Donegal, and her extended team to Letterkenny Chamber.
