Failte Ireland star ratings
As someone who only holidays in Ireland due to various factors, the first thing I do before booking a holiday home or B & B is check and ensure that where ever we are staying has the Critical Fáilte Ireland approved star ratings.
The fact that this will not be done by Failte Ireland in future is very disappointing. Their brand name means something to us all and more importantly to the tourist outside of Ireland coming here.
They say that they want to prioritise marketing more now , well they have failed on that first hurdle already.
