A new version of the Visit Ennis Guide is now available and it’s proving a big hit for families and shoppers seeking to make the most of what’s on in and around the county town.
The free visitor guide features sections on ‘what to do and see’, shopping, accommodation, travel, emergency services as well as dining and entertainment.
Now in its third edition, the Visit Ennis Guide is an initiative of Promote Ennis who contracted local company Actonbv to manage the publication process.
Chairman of Promote Ennis, Brian O’Neill, is delighted by the both the standard of the publication and the feedback amongst visitors and local businesses. He is grateful for the support shown by local business that financed the production,
“I would like to thank the business owners of the area who have funded the Guide through their advertising and listing contributions. This is a massive contribution to tourism in the area as a visitor guide of this standard is almost unique in Ireland. At trade shows, the Visit Ennis Guide is always a source of interest and envy from other locations around the country.
“Now in its third version, the Visit Ennis Guide is a significant financial undertaking and has been a completely locally-sourced production. All print, design, photography, marketing and production involved in the Guide has been undertaken by local companies.”
Mayor of the Ennis Municipal District and member of Promote Ennis, Johnny Flynn, has welcomed the Guide as a vital cog in the town’s marketing efforts,
“This publication will be available to visitors before they leave home, at the airports, hotels, shops and tourism centres. It shows the best of what we have to offer, shows that we are open for business and that we want to put a great ‘céad míle fáilte’ before our guests.
“Along with the Ennis App and the Visit Ennis website, the town is reaching tourists across all relevant platforms and giving local businesses effective opportunities to reach the tourism market. The linking of these platforms with a single,unified message is a big step forward for Ennis and a model for what can be achieved across all sectors, not just tourism.”
Ennis Chamber President, Paddy Darmody, thanked his members for backing the booklet.
“Support for the project has been fantastic and has resulted in a high-quality product that gives out all the right messages about our great town. Visitors are making great use of it and this will have a very positive yield for all sectors,” he said.
