Similar to the Wild Atlantic Way and Ireland’s Ancient East, an assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of the tourism product in the area is being undertaken and proposals being made how to grow a sustainable international tourism destination in the Shannon Corridor which respects the nature and diversity of the environment and its people.
Waterways Ireland is leading the project and is working in partnership with Fáilte Ireland and Local Authority Representatives on a steering group to guide the process which is being undertaken by SLR Consulting.
The project is running in parallel with an Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands branding project which is being led by Fáilte Ireland.
The Public Consultation on the project has closed ( 22 April 2020) and the submissions are being reviewed at present. When this process is complete, a final Masterplan will be published.
