We won a Gold Award at the Irish Responsible Tourism Awards!

On Thursday last Fuchsia Lane Farm was awarded a gold award at the Irish Responsible Tourism Awards. The awards are a response to demand from the Irish trade for a new type of awards showcasing the best in Irish responsible tourism. The 2016 Irish Responsible Tourism Awards aim to inspire replication, to excite media interest, to encourage competition and celebration from across the tourism industry on the island of Ireland.
Fuchsia Lane Farm was nominated in the category ‘Best for Local Sourcing’ and this award is in acknowledgement of our efforts, over the years, to encourage our guests to support local artisan food producers and other businesses while holidaying with us. We have always worked on the principle that a central element of Rural Tourism was the potential and benefit that can accrue to local economies. As one of the judges commented: ‘Niall and Inez have been practicing Responsible Tourism since before the term was invented!’
Judges for the awards include:

Catherine Mack (responsibletravel.com)
Kevin Griffin (DIT tourism lecturer and former-EDEN awards judge)
Paddy Mathews (Fáilte Ireland)
Annabel Fitzgerald (Irish Water & formerly Coastal Programmes Manager An Taisce)
Mark Henry (Central Marketing Director, Tourism Ireland)
Cyril McAree (Managing Director, Hotel & Restaurant Times)
Fáilte Ireland’s Head Investment & Innovation, Paddy Matthews said, “A more environmentally conscious and community-centred approach to developing tourism in Ireland is becoming more and more mainstream... and so it should. It results in more genuine and authentic experiences for all our visitors.”

The English Market in Cork is a must see. It would be wonderful to have similar markets in other rural towns. #foodtourism   #ruraltourism   #cork   #englishmarket

However, rural towns need the population with spending power and inclination to support local markets like this!

This is another of one of our suggestions for guests. Take the train or bus to Dublin for the day and leave your car at home!

Did you know the Guinness Storehouse gets 1.6 million visitors a year? It’s true, and Lonely Planet has been chatting to some of them to see why they love this iconic spot. Have you ever visited the home of the black stuff, as we call it? bit.ly/2d7kLaB

We agree that the Lough Derg area and entire Shannon Lakelands needs a strong brand to differentiate itself. 
Real danger that this midland lakelands region will be lost between the Wild Atlantic Way and Irelands Ancient East
