The site – – is part of a new promotional drive to illustrate the city’s rich history and vast array of amenities, a point bolstered by a new tourist map, which has already been well received.
Both the site and map were the brainchild of the ‘Destination Waterford’ committee which first convened at the Theatre Royal in December last.
This 14-strong group is drawn from across the city’s business, arts and tourism sectors and is working closely with Waterford City Council in the re-invigorated promotion of the city.  
“As a city we have much to offer visitors and we are continuing to launch products and tools to increase our share of the market,” said Mayor Roche.
“The key objectives are to capitalise on the fact that Irish people are holidaying at home; to boost the number of people coming into Ireland to holiday; and also capture more of the day-tripper market.
“We’re being proactive about highlighting the many festivals and events taking place in our city to those potential markets. I’m confident that this investment will reap great returns for tourism and related businesses in the city.”
