Garden Tourism.
Tourism has always been a key component of economic development in Ireland. Tourists enjoy their experience here, the countryside, the food, the ancient monuments and meeting the people. In recent years the visiting of gardens, both public and private has become a growing part of this tourism.
There is currently a big drive to increase tourism across the island of Ireland. The Wild Atlantic Way has already proved to be a big success and the new program of Ireland’s Ancient East has been rolled out. Tourism Northern Ireland also have effective campaigns.
These initiatives are clearly encouraging more visitors to our shores. Already 2016 looks to have been a better year than we have known for many years.
Gardens in Ireland can benefit from these promotions. We have many wonderful gardens, large and small, old and newly created and we can share them with visitors, both domestic and from overseas.
Following a seminar in October 2015 a working group to promote garden tourism was established and has since met on a number of occasions. During the year contacts were made with relevant national and local organisations and tourism bodies and all have expressed willingness to lend support to an all Ireland Garden Tourism initiative to be known as the Gardens of Ireland Trust.
To succeed in its aim of promoting Garden Tourism the Trust needs especially a strong membership of gardeners and other Garden Tourism related businesses together with support from garden writers, photographers and associated horticultural groups/organisations.
The forthcoming workshop will help to define what we need to do to succeed with the promotion of our wonderful gardens and identify ‘unique selling points’ and create ‘call to action’ points. The committee would like to invite as many gardeners and other Garden Tourism related businesses as can attend and we look forward to sharing ideas and plans to promote Garden Tourism.
