Sneem highly commended as one of Ireland’s top six small tourism towns

A delegation from Sneem travelled to the Morrison Hotel in Dublin on Wednesday, 25th November 2015 to attend Fáilte Ireland’s Top Tourism Towns Awards. The Tourism Towns Award was designed by Fáilte Ireland to promote Irish towns and villages working hardest to enhance their appeal to tourists.

The scheme “is not about recognising those towns that do best from tourism but rather those that do their best for tourism,” said Orla Carroll, Fáilte Ireland’s Director of Strategic Development.

A panel of ‘secret shoppers’ visited each of the shortlisted towns to measure their tourism performance and the level of welcome to visitors. This was Sneem’s first year in this competition and we were delighted to reach the top six in the Small Towns category alongside Kenmare, Clonakilty, Adare, Ardmore and Lismore, who deservedly won the Award.
