The ‘Visit Wexford Pass’ is a brand new multi-attraction discount card and it has been launched today (January 22nd) by Visit Wexford. The ‘Visit Wexford Pass’ aims to encourage residents to enjoy the attractions on their doorstep and it offers visitors an additional incentive to enjoy even more of the sites that the county has to offer.
Over 30 attractions and retail businesses across Wexford have signed up to be part of the discount card initiative, sites include the world’s oldest working Lighthouse at Hook Head to the Irish National Heritage Park to the great Victorian Wells House to Wexford Lavender Farm and many more. A full list of the participating attractions and retail businesses can be viewed along with the Visit Wexford Pass offers are detailed on visitwexford.ie
The discount pass, which is available to locals and visitors alike is an incentive for locals to get to know better and enjoy the gems on their doorstep and for visitors to enjoy additional value for money with increased reason to visit more sites than they may have already planned to. It can be used for every visit to each participating business and once during each visit.
Offers differ across the participating attractions; they include incentives like 10% off entrance fees, a complimentary tea or coffee and discounts on lessons and experiences plus discounts on crafts and gifts at retail outlets. All of the participating attractions and businesses will feature a Visit Wexford Pass window sticker.
Commenting at the launch of the ‘Visit Wexford Pass’ County Wexford Tourism Officer Siobhan O’Neill said, “This is a fantastic incentive for locals and visitors to get out and about and enjoy the abundance that County Wexford has to offer. We have asked all participating to offer a minimum value of a 10% discount on their entrance fee in whichever format they wish, so the value to the user of the pass Is really worthwhile, the pass can also be used more than once thereby encouraging repeat visits in what is typically the tourism shoulder season. We currently have over 30 attractions and businesses signed up to participate in this initiative and we hope to grow this even further.”
The ‘Visit Wexford Pass’ is currently operational and valid until April 2016. The discount card is available as a download from www.visitwexford.ie or as a cut out from Wexford’s local newspapers.
