Tourism Business

We aim to maximise opportunities for tourism development, which make best use of the natural and cultural resources of the county. Through the sustainable development of the rural economy, we aim to attract visitors and create new employment opportunities by providing support to existing rural tourism enterprises and for individuals wishing to develop tourism activities.

Through the LEADER Programme funding is available for the following activities;

  • Tourism Accommodation in Areas of Need and Niche or Specialist Tourism Accommodation (emphasis must be put on other aspects of provision in addition to the accommodation. This will require the provision of additional products or service to the market. Examples include bait & kit storage and drying room for anglers, bike hire, pick up and drop off, maps and packed lunches for cyclists, wet room, drop off and pick-up and maps for hill walkers, wellness and relaxation provision for visitors etc. Inclusion of such developments in an application will add to their merit at assessment and evaluation).
  • Creation of niche tourism products such as those based on arts and crafts, ecotourism, genealogy, heritage, etc.
  • Capital grant aid for tourism recreation activities and facilities
  • Collective & Collaborative Marketing proposals (involving three or more tourism businesses) and destination marketing for County Leitrim.
  • Tourism training and networking for businesses in the county.
