Fáilte Ireland has developed a Know Limerick Local Experts Programme to support those involved in the tourism sector and the local community, who welcome and engage with visitors to Limerick. This programme will commence with a 3-hour interactive workshops on what to see and do in Limerick at Thomond Park on Tuesday, 19th June at 1pm and 5.30pm, and on Wednesday, 20th June at 9.30am.
At the core of the Know Limerick programme will be a network of local people coming together to share their local knowledge to help visitors make the most of their visit to Limerick. The programme will also feature a number of annual events, social media initiatives, a Visitor Attractions pass and opportunities to network with other tourism businesses and interests.
Explaining the programme, Niamh Mannion, Visitor Engagement, with Fáilte Ireland said, “Limerick’s historical buildings & towns, its stunning landscapes and world-class sporting events & festivals are brought to life every day by the front-line employees and volunteers. Visitors not only seek out local people & their advice, they trust it. This programme aims to build on the good work already happening on the ground and inspire all front-line employees and volunteers to turn every visitor interaction into a truly informative & positive experience.”
The National Tourism Development Authority are calling on all visitor-facing employees, local volunteers and people in the Limerick community that regularly interact with visitors. So, if you own a B&B, work in a Hotel, restaurant, retail store, taxi company, or if you are active in your local community, the Know Limerick programme is for you.
This is a Free event and places are on a first come first serve basis. To register for the Workshop please email [email protected].
