Cafes, farm-shops, restaurants, hotels, guest houses, B&Bs, food vans, stalls and work-based restaurants can register under two different categories: Hot Breakfasts like cooked breakfasts, bacon sandwiches and porridge or Cold Breakfasts like cereals and continental breakfasts.
Open Letter from Howard Hastings, chairman Northern Ireland Tourist Board
A look back and a look forward
2014 was another good year for tourism in many ways; evidenced not least by continuing growth in visitor numbers and the increasing amount of money visitors are spending.
And it was a year in which our global reputation as a fresh and exciting visitor destination grew once again through the Giro d’Italia.
Enterprise, Trade and Investment Minister Arlene Foster has welcomed today’s confirmation that the Northern Ireland Executive and Irish Government have agreed to support a bid to host the Rugby World Cup in 2023.
Speaking after today’s announcement in Armagh, Arlene Foster said: “A lot of work has gone on behind the scenes since a group, chaired by Hugo McNeill, was set up in January to look at the logistics of preparing a bid. Together with colleagues from DCAL and the Republic, officials from my department have been working hard to ensure that a successful bid would bring value for money and tangible benefits for Northern Ireland.
