Fáilte Ireland estimates that over 130,000 overseas visitors to Ireland in 2016 engaged in angling. Leitrim, Longford, Roscommon and Cavan have an abundance of river stretches and lakes to offer angling tourists.

These workshops will explore opportunities to maximise the potential for attracting angling tourists to the region.

The workshop will include presentations from Inland Fisheries Ireland and Waterways Ireland to give an overview on potential selling points for the counties, supports available and how to market to angling tourists.

With an outstanding reputation for angling, the region has a distinctive offering for tourists.

The events are targeted at accommodation and activity providers from across the region.

The events are free of charge but booking is required. Both events will cover the same material with only slight variations to give local examples. 

The Leitrim & Cavan focused workshop will take place in the Slieve Russell Hotel, Ballyconnell, Co. Cavan on Tuesday, 20 February at 6pm.
