Irish Waterways are holding a series of Capacity Building Workshops looking at developing the Royal Canal & Greenway as tourist destination. The Kilcock Business Association believe this is a great opportunity for local Kilcock businesses, service providers and local community groups to attend these clinics and get a clear idea of proposed partnerships, future developments, proposals and ideas for the development of a tourism industry around the Royal Canal and Greenway.
What great ideas do you have for setting up a service / event / business / recreation activities around the Kilcock Canal and Greenway?
- Monday, 4:30pm, 2nd July 2018 in Glenroyal Hotel, Maynooth
- Tuesday, 4:30pm, 10th July 2018 in Longford Arms, Longford.
Following event in Longford:
Developing the Royal Canal around Kilcock as a Tourist Destination
From Irish Waterways:
These workshops will focus on the development of Blueway and Greenway trails on and along the 144km of canal and canal towpath from Dublin to Longford. Once complete, Royal Canal will be the longest off road walking and cycling Greenway trail on the island of Ireland. Accompanying this will be a series of Blueway developments, the first being located in Mullingar where a 22km paddling trail and activity hub will be established.
The workshops will encourage the development of activity based packages, dining and accommodation packages and promotional materials which will activate the region and place the product in the ‘shop window’ for both the domestic and international tourist.
