Tourism NI 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.
Enterprise Minister Arlene Foster today served up a new initiative aimed at giving more tourists an appetite to visit Northern Ireland.
Announcing that next year, 2016, will be Northern Ireland’s Year of Food, the Minister called on everyone to get involved in giving visitors a taste of what makes our local menus so special.
A new pilgrim walking trail linking key Patrician and Christian Heritage sites from Armagh to Downpatrick was launched at Navan Fort in Armagh on 2nd March.
Supported by Tourism NI in conjunction with Armagh, Down, Banbridge and Newry and Mourne District councils, the trail offers an 82 mile pilgrim walk highlighting the life, landscape and legacy of St Patrick.
Business opportunities that will arise out of the £30m development works to the Belfast Waterfront, due to be complete in 2016, were highlighted at a conference held in February.
Enterprise, Trade and Investment Minister Arlene Foster has highlighted the important role the Circuit of Ireland Rally plays in attracting more overseas visitors to Northern Ireland.
Speaking at the launch of the 2015 event, Arlene Foster said the rally’s billing as one of the FIA European Rally Championship’s (ERC) ‘flagship’ events would ensure that Northern Ireland’s tourism offering is presented to a wide audience.
