Dublin Chamber in the Media
Dublin is finally about to get a U2 Visitor Centre. Planning permission was granted this week for the centre, which will be located on Hanover Quay. Dublin Chamber was pleased to support the proposal in a submission to Dublin City Council last year. The Chamber's Graeme McQueen appeared on RTE's Morning Ireland this week to outline why a new U2 Visitor Centre is good news for Dublin's tourism offering. Listen back to the interview here.
Ever wanted to take a boat trip along the River Liffey? Good news - you'll soon be able to with the launch of a new passenger ferry in Dublin's Docklands. The service, which will cost €2 per trip, will run from The Point on the northside, over to Sir John Rogerson's Quay on the southside and then back over to a stop next to The Convention Centre. More details here.
The Chamber welcomed the announcement by Salesforce last week that it will create 1,500 new jobs in Dublin. Our full reaction is here. We also reacted to the news that Dublin Airport saw a record 31.5m passengers pass through its gates in 2018. The strong performance provides yet further validation of why we need MetroLink to be built.
