Tourism in the community

Community tourism business reaches into every part of Ireland and projects like yours – driven by local pride and vision – produce powerful and far-reaching economic and social benefits. Tourism in the Community supports will assist local government authorities, community groups and any community led businesses wishing to develop and grow tourism in their communities.

This toolkit which is accompanied by our video playlist can help your community tourism group, if you are looking for a step-by-step process to the business of setting up a new initiative. It will also be a great resource if you want to consolidate, grow, and deliver greater economic benefits from an existing project to revitalise your community post-COVID.

If you are starting a new project, like a visitor attraction, festival, community café or developing walking trails, you can draw on all sections of this document and the videos to help you establish a practical and useful business plan and set up appropriate governance structures.
