The joys of summer – Welcome tourism news for Waterford and South East

Tramore Fireworks 25-08-13 TOURISM has received a welcome boost in Waterford this summer with a noted  increase in both domestic and foreign visitors to the Déise, along with the wider  south east region.

Coastal resorts throughout Waterford including Dunmore East, Tramore, Clonea  and Ardmore have performed well in recent months, experiencing welcome  increases in visitor numbers and business levels.

New Ross, still glowing in the aftermath of the Kennedy Family Gathering and with  the Kennedy Summer School to be held from September 12th to 14th has also had  a welcome increase in visitor numbers, with the Kennedy Homestead and Hook Lighthouse proving particularly popular attractions.

And as the thousands who took to their bicycles for last Sunday’s Sean Kelly Tour demonstrated, the region’s attractiveness to domestic visitors shows little sign of waning.

Speaking to The Munster Express, Fáilte Ireland’s Head of Operations in the South East said the summer has proven most positive on the tourism front.

“The past few months have provided a really welcome boost for Waterford, the south east and the country in general,” said Gary Breen.

“It demonstrates the welcome demand to holiday in Ireland and demonstrates that there’s a huge amount on offer here, both to foreign and domestic tourists.”
