Named as one of the World's Best Tourism Sites

Screenshot of home page Named as one of the World's Best Tourism Sites has been named as one of the world's top 25 tourism sites for 2017!

The website was ranked by Skift, the largest industry intelligence platform, and is one of only four sites from Europe, and the only one from Ireland, that appears in the list. They analysed scores of websites from around the world to come up with this "best in breed" tourism websites list.

Launched in April earlier this year, the new site is the result of a year of design and development. As the official guide to Limerick, it is an all inclusive on-line voice for Limerick with comprehensive information on visiting, doing business and living in the capital of Ireland's Mid-West.

The new platform is fully mobile ready and features more than 2,000 attractions, services, community groups and businesses with more than 1,000 Limerick events currently listed on the site, from social events to council meetings. is now one of the most advanced local authority websites in the country, and sets the standard for other tourism sites to aspire to.

When selecting, Skift said: “We like how Limerick, Ireland draws attention to the different reasons why people travel to Limerick whether it’s for school, leisure or business. It also gives you a sense of what it’s like to live in the city and has helpful resources for locals to understand why they should be involved in the city’s tourism industry.”

Laura Ryan, Head of Marketing and Communications at Limerick City and County Council, was delighted with the news: "We are delighted that is in such great company with some of the world’s top tourism websites... It’s a great boost that all the hard work by the team has been rewarded with this achievement and the investment in providing such a strong platform for Limerick has been recognised internationally."

Here at Annertech, we are absolutely delighted with the achievement and recognition. I want to acknowledge the hard work that went into this project from everyone in the Annertech team, particularly Mike, Mark, Ricardo, Tom, Karen and Andrew. Well done!
