New visitors' guide offers the best of East Cork

Wednesday, 8th May, 2019 4:37pm

The second ever edition of the East Cork Visitors’ Guide is bigger and better, according to the people behind the publication.

Last Thursday the 2019 East Cork Visitors’ Guide was launched at Cork International Airport.

The East Cork Visitors’ Guide celebrates the cultural, historical, social, tourism and commercial aspects of East Cork, highlighting its diverse wealth of amenities for the discerning visitor.

The guide is supported by a fully comprehensive website - www.eastcork.ie - where a downloadable PDF of the guide will be available for tourists to download shortly after the launch.

The website - which is available to view in eight different languages - has been custom-made and adapted for use on smartphones, tablets and desktop PCs and contains additional information about what makes East Cork a must-visit destination.

The launch saw numerous East Cork service providers show the best of East Cork from local food producers, to family entertainment, five-star accommodation and award-winning tourist attractions.

The East Cork Visitors’ Guide was created and printed by Youghal-based print company, Flanagan Print.

Ger Flanagan, owner of Flanagan Print and Chairman of the Youghal Business Alliance, said at the event: “We are delighted to be launching the second annual East Cork Visitors’ Guide – which is packed full of information for tourists and East Corkonians alike. This 100 page, full-colour, glossy A4 guide offers a wealth of information on what to do, where to stay, where to wine and dine and – in short – how to spend your time in East Cork, whether visiting for business, pleasure or a combination of both.”

He added: “The 2019 guide's aim is to showcase East Cork's myriad activities, shopping opportunities, dining options and wealth of amenities, beautifully illustrating everything that is enticing, engaging and extraordinary about East Cork. And, in 2019, with East Cork proud to be hosting Ironman Ireland, Cork, we’re delighted to be welcoming more visitors than ever before to the region as this prestigious, international event arrives this June.”

East Cork is the gateway to both the Wild Atlantic Way and Ireland's Ancient East.

With an almost limitless range of fantastic attractions and tourist offerings, the aim of the guide is not just to entice visitors, but to keep them coming back for more!

Kevin Cullinane, Head of Communications at Cork International Airport performed the official launch, joined by Stephen Belton, President of Midleton and Area Chamber; David Stanton TD; Cllr Susan McCarthy and invited guests and local dignitaries.
