South Dublin County Council is delighted to announce the appointment of Type AB Consultancy to carry out a feasibility report for the further development of tourism visitor potential at Corkagh Park, Clondalkin.
Corkagh, our 285 acre Regional Park is strategically located just off the N7, close to the Red Cow LUAS interchange and on the doorstep of a series of hotels close to the City along the N7. Camac Valley Camping and Caravan Park is also based at the entrance to the Park. 
This feasibility study is designed to outline the opportunities and requirements for future development and enhancement of the parks offerings, heritage and its relationships with other local attractions such as the Clondalkin Round Tower and the Grand Canal Greenway, with a view to developing an enhanced and integrated visitor experience.
Welcoming the start of the study, Chief Executive Daniel McLoughlin said,
“Clearly there is potential in Corkagh Park itself and in its proximity to other recreation and tourism initiatives such as the Round Tower Visitor Centre (under construction) and the Grand Canal Greenway. Commissioning this study is evidence of our commitment to enrich the visitor offering by developing clusters of attractions as outlined in our tourism strategy, launched in April 2015. We look forward to seeing the vision for Corkagh Park and the area, as it emerges as a strong addition to the tourism attractions of the Dublin area.” 
The study is scheduled to be completed by the end of September and will outline a vision and plan for the enhancement of Corkagh Park, for the benefit of visitors and locals alike.
