Tralee and Lismore named as the best tourism towns in Ireland
In their annual Tourism Towns Awards, Fáilte Ireland awarded Tralee and Lismore with a certificate and a grant of €5,000 towards further tourism development
Tralee and Lismore have been crowned the top large and small tourism towns, respectively, by Michael Ring, TD Minister for State for Tourism and Sports. The Fáilte Ireland annual tourism awards recognise those towns that do their best for tourism and where all sectors have supported the strengthening of their local welcome.
Each town will receive a certificate and a grant of €5,000 towards further development in the tourism sector. Eight other towns were highly commended by the judges.
The judging was done by a panel of mystery shoppers and they noted in their judging of Tralee: “The impression you get when you arrive in Tralee is more than just a country town but rather it has a very special offering with a whole world of things to do for visitors.”
