Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
Irish National Stud
506. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport if investments will be made to the National Stud to support it as an iconic tourist destination nationally; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [9330/19]
In addition to its importance for the horseracing industry, the Irish National Stud and its gardens are an important tourism attraction for County Kildare and Ireland. I know that Fáilte Ireland has been working with the National Stud, with a view to further enhancing its tourism offering, so I have asked Fáilte Ireland to provide the Deputy with further detail in this regard. Please contact my private office if you have not received a reply within ten working days.
