Coach Friendly Locations


Coach Tourism is a key source of income to towns, villages and tourist attractions throughout the country.  It ensures access to many rural locations countrywide where there is no other form of public transport and provides domestic and international tourists with a conduit to access tourist attractions throughout Ireland.  The industry provides sources of employment into isolated rural communities where there would be no other form of employment available.


The Coach Tourism and Transport Council of Ireland recently launched the Coach Friendly Town Initiative, providing designated criteria to ensure tailor made infrastructure is in place to attract overseas and domestic tourists and to promote uniform standards throughout the country.  Those availing of this initiative have the potential to significantly increase the volume of tourists and the subsequent revenues accruing to businesses within their communities and to avail of the current economic upturn and the subsequent increase in tourism numbers.
