by Gazette Reporter

South Dublin County Council has engaged tourism development consultancy firm CHL Consulting Company Ltd to develop a tourism product and proposition development plan for Lucan.  

The plan is to produce a roadmap to help the tourism and hospitality sector in Lucan and environs to attract more visitors to the town. CHL have also been tasked with developing a number of themes for Lucan reflecting the uniqueness and appeal of the area which will help to market this part of South Dublin to visitors.    

Welcoming the appointment, Mayor of South Dublin County Council, Cllr. Ed O’Brien said: “This is another example of the benefit which has derived from Lucan’s designation as a ‘destination town’ by Fáilte Ireland last year and will ultimately furnish visitors with more reasons to visit Lucan.  

CHL Consulting Company Ltd will review the existing tourism related products and visitor experiences in the area to help develop a realistic and practical roadmap for businesses to enhance their offering, collaborations and linkages not just in Lucan but the wider Dublin area and within the Dublin ‘Surprising By Nature’ proposition. I would like also to acknowledge Fáilte Ireland’s involvement in part funding this study. 

South Dublin County possess the natural and cultural assets to establish and sustain a vibrant tourism sector. The Council has invested significantly in reinforcing the County’s tourism strength to help create a range of recreational and leisure activities and attractions all within a short journey time from the centre of Dublin and this latest news underlines that commitment and investment.” link to read this weeks Digital Edition
