As you know there is a huge demand for accommodation in the area during the Ploughing Championships in September this year. Maybe this is your chance to try your hand at B&B to see if you’d like it. With the forthcoming tourist drive by Failte Ireland on ‘Ireland’s Ancient East’ we hope to see a surge in visitors to our area over the coming years and we need to be ready to accommodate them. So check out what spare rooms you might have and get ready to welcome visitors to the area with a warm welcome in the hope that they’ll return in the future. Mid Ireland Tourism in Birr are looking after all enquiries about this area and you can contact them on 0579120923 where they’ll give you all the information you might need to help you decide whether you’re ready to dip your toe into the ‘Hospitality Industry’.
