New Fáilte Ireland projects are expected to attract 400,000 visitors over the next five years.

Ireland’s first national surfing centre, a major famine museum, and the development of the world’s oldest stone-walled fields are among seven new tourist attractions due this year to coincide with a return of visitors.

According to Fáilte Ireland, the mixture of new and revamped projects spread across five counties will attract about 400,000 visitors over the next five years and support an additional 8,000 jobs in the sector.

A total of €32m is being invested, including €16.2m in Fáilte Ireland grant allocations, and the projects are expected to generate tourism revenue of about €10 million per year.

Kelbuild Ltd. was appointed as the main contractor on the National Famine Museum project, which commenced in 2021 and is due for completion in late 2022.
