There is also a key focus on the heritage and culture of the county and how visitors can learn more about Clare’s rich past and traditions.

Key tourism industry personnel in County Clare attended the website launch, which formed part of a networking event focusing on challenges and opportunities for the local sector in 2023, including marketing the county, accommodation capacity, sustainable tourism, and the proposed transfer of Shannon Heritage sites to Clare County Council. Guest speakers included Pól O’Conghaile (Irish Independent Travel Editor) and Bobby Kerr (Irish entrepreneur & businessman).

“ ultimately acts as a one-stop shop for anyone interested in finding out more about County Clare,” said  Councillor Tony O’Brien, Cathaoirleach of Clare County Council.

Séan Lally, Chair of the Clare Tourism Advisory Forum, commented:

“The common theme of conversation at the Clare ‘Tourism Together’ Networking Event 2023 centred around new ways that the industry here in Clare can work together to promote the county. Clare’s reliance on the tourism economy is particularly acute in comparison to many other parts of the country, and it is vital, therefore, that we maintain a collaborative approach to how we market the county at home and abroad.”
