Those behind a destination development plan designed to build on a new collective vision for tourism in Killarney met earlier this week.

The Killarney Destination and Experience Development Plan (DEDP) kicked off its 2023 planning on Monday morning at Fáilte Ireland’s Killarney Office.

The Killarney DEDP was launched earlier this year by Fáilte Ireland and outlines a new five-year strategy to promote and maintain tourism in Killarney.

At the meeting, representatives from Fáilte Ireland, key stakeholders, tourism industry members and the local community, discussed plans to help bring local experiences to life, including Muckross House and Killarney House along with festivals and events for 2023, as well as plans for welcoming domestic and international visitors to Killarney.
