NITB is responsible for the development of tourism and the marketing of Northern Ireland as a tourist destination to visitors within Northern Ireland and from the Republic of Ireland.
The last few years have been remarkable for Northern Ireland Tourism. From Our Time Our Place in 2012, the opening of Titanic Belfast, the new Giant's Causeway Centre, the MTV Awards, the Irish Open golf championship, and earlier this year the Giro d'Italia ‘Big Start’, to name but a few - Northern Ireland has attained a place on the world stage which could never have been envisaged a few years ago.
Work has officially started on the £29.5 million extension to Belfast Waterfront – the biggest capital project in Belfast City Council’s ongoing Investment Programme.
Belfast City Council is providing £11 million towards the expansion, with £14.4 million funding from the EU Sustainable Competitiveness Programme, and £4.1 million from the Northern Ireland Tourist Board.
The Coca-Cola Visitors Experience in Lisburn is definitely ‘the real thing’, having recently been awarded four stars under the new NITB Visitor Attraction Grading Scheme.
A four-star rating indicates that the attraction is of an ‘excellent’ standard.
Five geological sites from Northern Ireland have been included in the list of the top 100 Geosites in the UK and Ireland it was announced today by the Geological Society of London. In an initiative to identify the best rocks and landscapes, the Giant’s Causeway, Loughareema, Marble Arch Caves, Portrush and the Ring of Gullion have all been included in the final list that has been launched as part of Earth Science Week.
