Over 100 individuals and representatives of Limerick’s tourism and hospitality sector recently attended Fáilte Ireland’s Know Limerick Local Experts Programme workshops at the Dunraven Arms Hotel in Adare, Co. Limerick.
The workshops took place on Tuesday, 12th March, and were part of an initiative by Fáilte Ireland to develop a network of local people who share knowledge and interact positively with visitors in Limerick.
The programme aims to develop a tourism business network, social media initiatives and to make every visitor engagement a positive one in order to ultimately grow tourism businesses and the local economy.
Speaking at the workshops, Niamh Mannion, Senior Travel Advisor with Fáilte Ireland, said: “More and more holidaymakers tell us that they rely on and trust the advice and information received from the local people they meet during their stay. This programme is building on that sentiment by inspiring all front-line employees and volunteers to turn every visitor interaction into a truly informative and positive experience and to help offer visitors relevant recommendations on places of interest to visit throughout Co. Limerick.”
