Waterways Ireland, in association with Fáilte Ireland, appointed SLR Consulting, with partners TellTale and Alan Hill Tourism, to develop a bold and innovative Tourism Masterplan for the Shannon Region. The Masterplan is addressing the Shannon Navigation from Limerick City to Lough Allen, including Lough Key, Co Roscommon the Shannon-Erne Waterway to Belturbet in Co. Cavan. It encompasses a 10km wide corridor traversing 10 counties (see map attached), and will form a central component of Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands experience offering.


SLR/Telltale is holding a series of Consultative Workshops on the Shannon Tourism Masterplan in late January 2019.  See programme below – you choose which workshop to attend, but please let us know your choice!

These workshops will help us to identify compelling tourism experiences, based on emerging themes from consultations to date, to underpin the Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands ‘Active in Nature’ tourism proposition for the River Shannon. For this we need key people who know, love, understand, and live or work along the River Shannon corridor, who can contribute to developing ideas for new and exciting tourism initiatives along the entire river.


We would like to invite you to participate in this workshop and to also spread the word to others who may be interested in participating.
