It was named the Irish winner of this year's European Destination of Excellence award in recognition of the efforts that have been made to make the town and its environs accessible to visitors with a disability.

A panel of judges visited the town and carried out an assessment to see how accessible it is to people with disabilities.

As part of its prize, the town will now receive free marketing support from Failte Ireland, including a professional photo shoot and a promotional DVD, and a grant of €5,000 to support business development.
