Sorry this event has now finished.

Following on from the Tourism Development Strategy produced for Fermanagh & Omagh District Council last year, Tourism NI and the Council have commissioned Blue Sail to recommend a distinctive proposition for tourism in Fermanagh Lakelands.

Blue Sail is a specialist tourism consultancy, established 10 years, that works across the UK and Ireland. They will be looking at different options and recommending on the way forward for the Destination.

As part of the business consultation process for this work, we are holding a session at 6.00 p.m. on 9 November at South West College in Enniskillen, where the Project Director Michele Grant from Blue Sail will be there to introduce you to the project, tell you what they are doing and listen to your views.

The session will finish by 8.00 p.m at the latest and tea/coffee will be served on arrival.

We do hope you can join us as it is important that we have local industry input to the process, as the findings will help inform the development of a tourism proposition for the Fermanagh Lakelands.

For planning purposes, it will be very helpful to know whether you will be able to attend and I therefore would be grateful if you could let me know in advance via email at by Tuesday 7th November 2017.

The areas to be explored on the night are:

  • What makes Fermanagh Lakelands different from other places including other lakeland products/experiences and how more can be made of those unique strengths.

  • What you think Fermanagh Lakelands needs to do to be a vibrant destination including what the destination should do more of, and what it should do less of.

  • What markets/types of people come to Fermanagh now and who else should the destination be trying to attract and why.

  • What your views are about different lead propositions for the area.


If you have any views on the above points, and are unable to attend the session on the 9th November, then do please drop an email with your thoughts to me at and I will make sure your ideas are shared with Blue Sail.
