‘Showcase Roscommon 2015’

Fun for all the family is on offer at ‘Showcase Roscommon 2015’ on Sunday 5th July, from 3 pm to 7 pm in the Abbey Hotel, Roscommon town.

  Organised by the Roscommon Community Tourism Network, this free event will give you a flavor of all that county Roscommon has to offer, from locally produced food and craft, to attractions and accommodation.

   The event will be attended by celebrated Roscommon celebrities, such as our very own ‘Moone Boys’ Martin and Patrick, along with activities for all the family to enjoy, including a mini Pet Farm from Glendeer.

   Ever wondered what to do with those visitors who come to stay with you during the summer months?

  ‘Showcase Roscommon 2015’ will provide you with lots of ideas and information on things to do, along with discounts and special offers for some of our key attractions. Exhibitors include attractions, accommodation providers and service providers and there will be lots of high quality prizes, giveaways and activities throughout the day.

  According to Valerie Stenson, Manager of Arigna Mining Experience and committee member of Roscommon Community Tourism Network (RCTN): “We have so much to offer our visitors; you can soak in the scenery on a boat trip on Lough Ree, or take a walk on the Miner’s Way and Historical Trail, fill your day with fun and adventure at Lough Key Forest Park or tour our historic houses and museums. There really is something for everyone and ‘Showcase Roscommon 2015’ is a great chance to highlight this.”

  Roscommon Community Tourism Network is a not-for-profit community organisation with an impressive list of achievements over the past three years, including branded brochures, discount booklets, www.roscommon.ie, social media pages, promotional events and 11 tourism videos which are available online. The group have received support from Roscommon LEADER Partnership and Roscommon County Council and over 250 tourism businesses are benefitting from their activities. Plans for the future include a new suite of brochures, packaged offerings for tourists and increased online marketing activities.

  “We have found that working together to promote our county is much more economical and efficient than each business trying to do it on their own”, said Patricia Golden, manager of Una Bhan Tourism and member of Roscommon Community Tourism Network.
