WHAT IS IT

The vision of this project is to provide the region with a unique visitor attraction and social facility of world class interest that perfectly addresses the challenges facing tourism. Tourism is the backbone of the local economy and over many years Kenmare has etched an enviable reputation worldwide. In recent years the dynamic of the tourism industry worldwide has changed considerably. As world travel trends change the days of high spending long stay touring tourists have gone forever. Shorter stay with a high culture/design/environment/ culinary experience are the main motives in travel decisions in recent years. Kenmare’s reputation and setting is a perfect place to locate a World Class Tourist Attraction.

Such an addition to the region’s tourism product would place Kenmare on a pedestal which in turn will drive prosperity for the whole community and region. The commercial and social prosperity of the area driven by increased numbers of visitors is the sole aim of this project.

This project is the vision of a number of local busines people and residents with an interest in the sustainable commercial prosperity of Kenmare and the arts.
