Cork City Tourist Brochure

Posted by admin

   A pocket sized brochure of Cork City’s top tourist attractions, which is already being snapped up by visitors and residents alike, was officially launched at Elizabeth Fort today.  Since it was first printed two months ago, 40,000 copies of the brochure have already been issued to Cork Airport, taxi companies, Kent Railway Station and it’s on a second print turn – just in time for the school summer holidays.

  The ‘Top Attractions in Cork City brochure’ was produced by Cork City Council at the introduction of its cruise ambassadors programme last April. Following a review of the tourism information available, officials saw that a one-stop brochure with the city’s 16 top tourist attractions would be more practical for tourists.

   Cork City Council tourism officer, Josephine Gazely said: “Already there’s been a fantastic reaction to the brochures. Visitors clearly like to have their information condensed into a brochure that will fit into your pocket. They’d rather not carry around over a dozen flyers on arrival in Cork”.

   The brochures contain information on 16 top attractions, a way finding map, opening times and entrance fees.  They are available in various languages. The attractions include Cork City Gaol, The English Market, Cork Public Museum & Fitzgerald’s Park, Crawford Art Gallery, UCC, Glucksman Gallery, Lifetime Lab, Shandon Church & The Butter Exchange, St Finbarres Cathedral and Elizabeth Fort.
Cork City Council’s  five trained cruise ambassadors attended the brochure launch at Elizabeth Fort today. This cruise season, the trained cruise ambassadors have been travelling on to cruise liners as the arrive into Cobh and Ringaskiddy, providing passengers with information on the city, handing out the new ‘Top Attractions in Cork City’ brochure and offering advice on where to eat, drink and shop in Cork City.

   The cruise ambassadors programmes aims to increase the footfall and spend of the cruise tourist in Cork and promote Cork as a premier tourism destination. Over 100,000 cruise passengers and 60,000 crew will visit in 2017 as over  65 cruise liners are expected in Cork from April-November this year.
