Awarded for "Best Environmental Tourism Innovation"
The Irish Tourism Industry Awards celebrate innovation and
excellence in Irish tourism, and Lullymore Heritage Park has won the award for Best Environmental Tourism Innovation.
They received the award from Minister Shane Ross at a gala awards ceremony at the Clayton Hotel in Dublin.
The Irish Tourist Industry Confederation (ITIC), the umbrella group for the tourism industry in Ireland, organises the awards in conjunction with Failte Ireland and Tourism Ireland. Over 550 people from the industry were in attendance.
Designed with the intention of rewarding innovation and excellence in tourism, 14 worthy winners were ultimately selected from approximately 250 entries.
Minister Ross said:
“The range of awards recognises both innovation and excellence and rewards the best operators within Irish tourism. It gives us the opportunity to come together to champion excellence, reward success and inspire others in the tourism industry to follow suit. Congratulations to all winners.”
Geraldine Judge, Chairperson of Lullymore Heritage and Discovery Park said:
“We’d like to dedicate this award to the late Sean Judge, the founder of the park, and all staff past and present. Sean led the park from very humble beginnings to what we have today. We find it very fitting that the award we received was in recognition of the last project Sean led to fruition – the Peatlands Exhibition and Biodiversity Boardwalk trail in 2013”.
