Building a sustainable marine tourism trail through community voices: Rathmullan, Co. Donegal

Desiree Farrell presented her work at the 2021 Donegal Marine Tourism Conference on 23 March 2021. For her doctoral research at NUI Galway, Desiree has been exploring how the community and cultural identity of Ireland’s west coast is shaped through the lens of tourism. Her work within the MOSES project has been based in the community of Rathmullan, which sits along Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way touring route in County Donegal.

This research contributes to the examination of the Wild Atlantic Way as a ‘Living Lab’ for Blue Growth Pathways for coastal tourism trails in Ireland, which Desiree presented on behalf of the NUI Galway MOSES team.
