dc.description.abstract This paper measures willingness to pay (WTP) for public access and trail improvements to a coastal recreational site in the west of Ireland. The Contingent Behaviour model is used to measure the increased number of trips associated with improved public access using recreational trails along a stretch of Irish coastline. Results show that improving access through the use of trails increases consumer surplus by 111.15 euro per person per annum. We argue that in designing new regulation such as Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) for the management of Ireland¿s coastline, an understanding of the values the Irish public place on coastal recreational access will be important to manage the resource in a sustainable manner. en
