Information event on the new Failte Ireland “Welcome Standard” accommodation category on Thursday 22nd March in the Redcastle Hotel from 12.00 until 14.00.
The aim of the event is to inform people in the community of opportunities to get any additional accommodation they may wish to make available for visitors approved by Failte Ireland and therefore get it promoted through the Wild Atlantic Way campaigns both here in Ireland and overseas. This is particularly important as we try to maximise the opportunity of recent Star Wars filming, the upcoming Irish Open and our plans to undertake a Visitor Experience Development Plan for Inishowen in the next number of months.

Host families wanted for 12 to 17 year old Spanish Students for the month of July 2018. Host families must have children in this age-group. For further information please call 087 6008446.
