It is hoped that the increase in recognition on a worldwide stage and numerous accolades awarded to the county in recent times will increase tourism numbers for the coming year.

In a statement, Head of Tourism for Donegal County Council, Mr. Barney McLaughlin being named as the National Geographic Traveller’s “Coolest Place on the Planet 2017”, listed as the “Most Beautiful County in Ireland” by the popular website ‘”Ireland Before You Die” and the exposure from the filming of Star Wars at Malin Head among many other important developments for tourism in Donegal have provided the opportunity to increase visitor numbers in 2017.

The shows take place in Belfast later this month and offer tourism providers from across the county a fantastic opportunity to launch the 2017 season.

Through collaborative marketing it is hoped that Donegal will be placed firmly on the map as one of the top tourist destinations in the world.

Donegal Tourism Ltd in association with Donegal County Council will also work collaboratively with tourism providers to showcase Donegal on the Wild Atlantic Way.
