  • Mediation Survey

Chambers Ireland was contacted by a researcher (Aonghus Cheevers) who is analysing attitudes on commercial mediation. He has developed a survey to test people’s attitude to mediation and should take no more than 8-10 minutes to complete. He’s ideally looking for it to be completed by people/organisations who have used mediation though it is also open to practitioners

The link is available below. We would be grateful if you could circulate it to your networks. Should you have any queries, please contact

  • Fáilte Ireland Tourism Barometer Results

Fáilte Ireland recently released the April 2017 Tourism Barometer which surveys tourism businesses to provide insight into the tourism performance of the year to date and the prospects for the future.

The report shows that the tourism sector sentiment remains upbeat but there is evidence of some softening which can be attributed to concerns about the British market.

The full findings in the Tourism Barometer are available here

  • Dublin Chamber – Great Dublin Survey

What do the people of Dublin want their city to be like in the future? Dublin Chamber is looking to find out via ‘The Great Dublin Survey’. The Great Dublin Survey, which can be carried out online at, sets out a number of thought-provoking questions that aim to capture the ideas, hopes, wants and aspirations of people who live in Dublin.

The Great Dublin Survey is part of Dublin Chamber’s ‘Dublin 2050’ initiative, which is exploring the need for better long-term planning in the Dublin region.
