The coronavirus is having a devastating effect on global travel and tourism, including here in Clare. We know that all tourism sectors are experiencing it, but a recent All-Ireland survey of visitor attractions gives an insight into the impact of the pandemic.
The survey was carried out by Visitor International (the International Association of Visitor Information Providers) together with Glance Promotions and Heritage island in order to understand the effects of the coronavirus on tourism attractions and experiences. The survey was undertaken between April 9 and 24, 2020 and is based on feedback by ninety-four leading attractions and experiences.
While the findings are stark, there are valuable insights in the reports, including suggestions and ideas for visitor attractions trying to navigate these difficult times.
