THE MID KERRY TOURISM EXHIBITION
Coordinated by The Mid Kerry Tourism Cluster
Mid Kerry Tourism Cluster are inviting all tourism, hospitality and accommodation providers to showcase your business at a free information meeting on Tuesday 23rd June 2015 at 10.30am @ The South Pole Inn, Annascaul. Representatives from other areas of the Mid Kerry providers will be gathering information and taking a training tour of Mid Kerry.
The initiative aims to encourage a collaborative networking by providing an oversight of what is on offer between all of the tourism business providers across Mid Kerry. In order to support our respective tourism businesses and build tourism revenue potential in Mid Kerry, we must first become familiar with what is on offer in each area.
The tour is aiming to encapsulate the following areas:
- Annascaul and Inch
- Castlemaine and Firies
- Listry, Beaufort, Gap of Dunloe and The Black Valley
- Caragh Lake and Glencar
- Glenbeigh & Rossbeigh
- Cromane and Dooks
Each of the areas listed above would need to identify a suitable location for the tour to visit. Ideally, somewhere where local traders & producers could showcase their produce.
We are seeking your support in collating a comprehensive list of tourism attractions in your respective areas. This information should be collected in the context of the following headings as a guideline:
- Activities – walking, angling, surfing, horse riding and so on.
- Meet The Makers – Craft and artisan food makers to showcase their products
- Historical & Cultural Interest – historical areas, stories, area viewing points, music
- Flora & Fauna of the area – Wildlife
- Events – any events or markets your area will be hosting
- Viewing Points
Our busy season is upon us, so we need to work together quickly in order for this initiative to benefit the current season. We hope that all areas would view this as a great opportunity showcase their area from a tourism and business perspective.
The Mid Kerry Infomation morning will Showcase Key Mid Kerry Attractions.
