This project is a collaborative effort between the Strategic Partnership Agreement (The Office of Public Works (OPW), Department of Housing Local Government and Heritage (DHLGH), Fáilte Ireland) and Tipperary County Council.
The Partnership has engaged a team of consultants, led by Consarc Architects, to assess a range of location options and to identify the preferred location for the provision of a major new tourism experience and management facility to serve the Rock of Cashel visitor site. This site selection process aims to progress a Tourism Investment Programme within Cashel and to seek to extend dwell time within the town and the surrounding area. It is intended that the site selection process will inform and lead to a significant project investment in the tourism infrastructure for the Rock of Cashel and town environs.
Together with the State Agencies involved, the design team of Consarc Architects, Haley Sharpe Design and The Paul Hogarth Company are embarking on a process of stakeholder engagement to further understand the town of Cashel, its surrounding area and the potential that exists to capitalise on the existing visitor numbers to the Rock of Cashel and maximise the benefits of any new visitor experience for the town.
The outcome of the project will be the appraisal of a number of potential sites within Cashel Town to determine their relative suitability for the proposed development of a new Visitor Centre under three headings:
A core aim of the project is to demonstrate how the development of new facilities can maximise the benefits to the town of Cashel .
