Munster Vales is a new Tourism Destination

Munster Vales will be developed as the key inland destination in Ireland's Ancient East. The Munster Vales extends from the Comeragh Mountains to Ballyhoura incorporating the Galtee Mountains and the Knockmealdowns Mountains. It is supported by Failte Ireland, Tipperary, Waterford and Cork County Councils, local development agencies and tourism entities. The board is in the process of preparing a 3 Year Tourism Marketing Plan with a particular emphasis on developing a number of visitor experience bundles which will be market ready. A critical element in the process of developing the “market ready bundles” is to work with the tourism service providers and stakeholders, to explore opportunities for collaboration within the sector and to think collectively about initiatives which will enable Munster Vales to fulfil its intention as the key inland destination in Ireland's Ancient East.
