Intro Text 

35 people from a wide range of tourism sector organisations met last night in the Dalkey Castle & Heritage Centre to discuss preparations for the upcoming 2018 tourism season.  Despite the recent weather, spring and summer are definitely on the way, dlr and its tourism partners are preparing to welcome a large number of visitors to Dún Laoghaire Rathdown over the summer months with an impressive range of festivals and events under development.

dlr has developed a new Tourism Strategy and Marketing Plan 2017 – 2022 and will be promoting three new visitor experiences as part of this strategy - Urban Splash, Well Worth the Climb & Between the Lines. Each of these will focus respectively on our coastline, our uplands and mountain areas and our literary heritage.

This tourism networking event was organised by dlr's Tourism Officer, Dave Lawless, in association with Local Enterprise Week 2018.  Mariea Mullally from the Local Enterprise Office was also on hand to inform the attendees of the opportunities available to Tourism businesses through the DLR LEO.

Keep up to date on festival & events in dlr this year on our website and social media channels.
