From Department of Rural and Community Development:


A National Outdoor Recreation Strategy is currently being developed by Comhairle na Tuaithe (The Countryside Council) in conjunction with the Department of Rural and Community Development. It is expected that the Strategy will be launched later this year.

The strategy will provide a vision and an overarching framework for the growth and development of outdoor recreation in Ireland, creating a shared approach for the many strategies, programmes, agencies and elements in Ireland’s outdoor recreation sector.

The first public consultation on this Strategy was carried out in July 2021 and there was a very positive engagement with over 2,100 responses. In Phase 1, we gathered your views on key themes in outdoor recreation to help develop the Strategy. We received positive feedback from you on the proposed Strategy vision, mission and values. This feedback has shaped the strategy development and now the Minister for Rural and Community Development, Heather Humphreys, has launched a second public consultation seeking the views of the public on proposed objectives and actions for 6 key themes.
