Fáilte Ireland’s Website Improvement Programme is a training and investment programme that will help participants improve the content and functionality of their website, as well as improving their digital skills.
Mark McGovern, Manager of Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands, said: “We launched the Website Improvement Programme to improve the attractiveness of Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands by improving the websites of attractions and activity providers in the region.
“86% of visitors to Ireland book everything independently and 92% of all visitors use the internet to research the destinations they are travelling to, so each website really is the shop window of Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands. The programme has been really well received to date and we look forward to seeing these websites going live in 2020 ahead of the peak tourism season.”
