Visitors not only seek out local people and their advice, they trust it. More and more holidaymakers tell us that they rely on and trust the advice and information received from the local people they meet during their stay.“This programme is building on that sentiment by inspiring all front-line employees and volunteers to turn every visitor interaction into a truly informative and positive experience and to help offer visitors relevant recommendations on places of interest to visit in Donegal.” Christina jose Irwin, Amanda Boyle Failte Ireland and Anne McCaughey, OPW, Donegal Castle at the Failte Ireland Know Donegal Local Expert Event in the Abbey Hotel Donegal Town on Tuesday last.
