Donegal County Council has launched its new Tourism Brochure for 2018.
The brochure uses over forty different themes and headings from popular activities, such as surfing, golf, and angling; to unique Donegal amenities and resources, such as local produce, Islands and the Gaeltacht and festivals to allow the reader to easily plan their visit.
The brochure also offers the visitor six recommended touring routes for different regions of the county in addition to the Wild Atlantic Way route which has seen huge interest in the county.
New elements have been added including an extended list of walks in the county, including eighty official walk options, an updated cycling route including the Eurovelo 1, and extended activities – both land and water based, with a focus on the Northern Lights and screen tourism, following on from the success of the latest Star Wars offering that was filmed in part in Malin Head.
Speaking at the launch Chief Executive of Donegal County Council and Chairman of Donegal Tourism Seamus Neely said that this brochure gives a flavour of the fantastic facilities and attractions that we have in the county and it brings to life a strong visual image of Donegal for the potential visitor.
He said “this is the second edition of this brochure and it beautifully captures many images that display the diversity and majesty of Donegal. It sets out an array of activities, places of interest and services that are available to potential visitors”.
He added that the new brochure has been increased by an additional four pages bringing it to sixty pages and the circulation of this brochure is now in excess of 20,000 per year, throughout Ireland, UK, USA, France, Germany and indeed the USA.
