Limerick.ie has been named as one of the world’s Top 25 best tourism websites for 2017. The list has been compiled by US-based Skift, the largest industry intelligence platform providing media, insights and marketing to key sectors of travel across the globe.
Limerick.ie is the only website in Ireland to be chosen for the 2017 list and, in fact, is one of only four in Europe.
In choosing Limerick.ie as one of the world’s Top 25 tourism platforms, Skift said: “We like how Limerick, Ireland draws attention to the different reasons why people travel to Limerick whether it’s for school, leisure or business. It also gives you a sense of what it’s like to live in the city and has helpful resources for locals to understand why they should be involved in the city’s tourism industry.”
Limerick.ie underwent a major re-launch last April (2017), making it one of the most advanced local authority digital platforms in the country.
There are thousands of pages to explore in what is the biggest single online portal for any council in Ireland.
Central to the new Limerick.ie is allowing user generated content to be integrated seamlessly into the website.
The new platform is fully mobile ready and features more than 2,000 attractions, services, community groups and businesses with more than 1,000 Limerick events currently listed on the site, while an estimated 2,000 new Limerick events will be published on the site every year.
There is also a feedback option on each page so that the local authority can continuously improve the service.
