Get Your Business Listed on the Cool Route

EU Cool Route


Donegal businesses are being urged to link in with a new Information and Booking Platform that will  link their businesses to their local ports providing information to marine tourists on what’s available in the port locality, by way of food and drink, entertainment, things to do and see and places to visit.


This new Information and Booking Platform has been launched as part of the Cool Route Project which Donegal County Council is a partner of and which is about promoting Marine Tourism on Europe’s North Western Seaboard.


The self-registration process is free, fast and simple to complete in a few minutes and includes automatic mapping of your location, details of your products and services and a direct link to your own business or community website.


Since the commencement of the Cool Route Project in 2015, Marine Tourism is expanding at an encouraging rate and just recently Boat International, one of the most prestigious superyacht magazines described the Cool Route as the Most Adventurous Cruising Route in the world.–31175


Visits to the Cool Route by private yachts and liners, as well as superyacht are steadily increasing on the Cool Route Coasts, stretching north westerly from Cork in Ireland as far as Tromsø in Norway. Coastlines include South and West of Ireland, Northern Ireland, Western and Northern Scotland, the Faroe Island and Western Norway.  Cool Route aims to promote these unique sailing grounds in North West Europe, encouraging sailing visitors to enjoy some of the most scenic, challenging and culturally diverse coastlines on our planet.


The primary objective of the Cool Route project is to bring new business opportunities to a wide range of small enterprises that provide quality goods and services. The Cool Route Information and Booking System allows a direct link between the community and enterprises and the visiting vessels.
