The Copper Coast UNESCO Global Geopark, as well as 13 other Atlantic Area European partners, has been successful in our application to the EU Interreg Atlantic Area Program for funding to develop and promote geo tourism within existing and aspiring Geoparks in Atlantic Europe.
This 30 month project will endeavour to forge new tourism links and products, within an Atlantic Geo tourism route, by promoting our shared interests and common heritage. The two other Irish Global Geoparks, The Burren Geopark in Co.Clare and Marble Arch Caves Geopark in Cavan/Fermanagh, will also be partners in this project along with partners from France, Spain, the UK and Portugal.
The Atlantic Geoparks project will look at promotional opportunities, networking and innovative IT projects which can be used to boost tourist numbers in a sustainable number across the project area.
