The Achill Experience visitor attraction has been allocated €75,000 to fund a 60 square metre extension.
The funding has been granted through the Dormant Accounts Fund in Minister Michael Ring’s Department.
This investment will support the building of an extension to the front of the property which will contain a new enlarged entrance, retail space, rest area and cafe.
Almost 70,000 visitors have enjoyed Achill Experince since it opened its doors in 2016.
Minister Ring has been telling Midwest Radio that the aquarium and visitor centre is the feather in the cap of Achill.
