Fáilte Ireland, the National Tourism Development's role is to support the long-term sustainable growth in the economic, social, cultural, and environmental contribution of tourism to Ireland.
By joining forces with Clean Coasts, who engage communities in the protection of Ireland’s beaches, seas and marine life, for their summertime Enjoy and Protect campaign, they hope to raise awareness to how our wildlife and marine spaces, when kept clean, benefit the visitor experience.
