Did someone say... road trip? No? My bad


Fáilte Ireland have just released their list of Ireland's top 15 towns for the Tourism Town Awards 2015.

The 15 towns are on the shortlist to become crowned Ireland's best town, over the course of the next few weeks 'secret shoppers' will visit the towns on the list in order to narrow down the list to 10. Awards for small and big tourism will then be announced in November.

This is the fourth year of the Tourism Town Awards, with Westport winning last year's award for best large town while Kinsale won best small town. This year, it appears the majority of contenders seem to be focused in Cork and Kerry.
