Campaign against Dublin Port decision to turn away cruise ships from 2021 - All the latest here...

Dublin Port have announced that from 2021 they will restrict the number of cruise ships visiting to 80 and stop cruises from starting and stopping in Dublin. This brings Dublin Port back to 2010 levels of cruise activity preventing you options to step onboard in Dublin, costing the economy in excess of €50million plus and damaging the livelihoods of those that benefit from these visits - such as local transport suppliers, local food & beverage suppliers, local tour guides, local visitor attractions and much more!

 

While this is a decision by Dublin Port regarding Dublin but in reality this will affect the whole country...

 

We must get this decision reversed - please sign the petition below and see all the latest news below
