Louth comes out on top in YourDaysOut Awards

Louth scooped two awards at the recent YourDaysOut Awards ceremony.

YourDaysOut is the fastest growing website in Ireland providing people with thousands of ideas for fun things to do around Ireland.

Thousands of people recently voted in the YourDaysOut Awards and they recently announced the winners of the top things to do in Ireland.

The winners were selected following thousands of votes spread across 161 entries in 9 different categories.

Louth collected two GOLD awards with Funtasia picking up top prize for Best Water Activity and Airbound winning Best Party Venue.

Louth also picked up two Silver Awards with Carlingford Adventure Centre being recognised in the Adventure category and new kid on the block SkyPark impressing the School Tours category.

Ciaran Dunne, co-founder of YourDaysOut said, “Ireland has some amazing things to do all over the island and YourDaysOut gives people an easier way to find information and businesses a simple, cost-effective way to reach them.”

“The competition was exciting to run. Being only a new company, but one that is growing very fast, it provided us with a great opportunity to ask our audience about their favourite days out.”

Research shows that one out of every five domestic holiday trips is families travelling with children (850,000 per annum) while one in ten overseas visitors are travelling with their family.

Tourists don’t make decisions in isolation and research nearby attractions when considering hotels, while the latest tourism barometer from Failte Ireland shows that marketing campaigns have helped business performance in 2017. *

YourDaysOut - recently nominated for an Eir Spider for Digital Start-Up - is a great place to start researching your next trip, birthday party or family break.
