In the Strategic Plan for Tourism in County Kildare 2022-2026, Into Kildare has committed to focus on universal design to ensure that tourism in the county is accessible to all.
Strategic Priority 4: Reinforcing Destination Connectivity & Accessibility
Action 15: Encourage the adoption of principles of universal design
Adoption of principles of universal design (i.e. making tourism attractions, accommodation and services accessible for all) will enable a wider cohort of people to enjoy their experience of tourism in Kildare. This includes the young, the old, and those with diverse abilities. New and existing tourism businesses will be encouraged to adopt principles of universal design and age friendly design in the development and operation of their businesses.
Into Kildare will collaborate with County Kildare Access Network and Kildare County Council to encourage tourism businesses to adopt principles of universal design.
