Top international tour operators have been visiting the Causeway Coastal Route, as part of a fact-finding trip to Northern Ireland. The tour operators were invited here by Tourism Ireland, in conjunction with Tourism NI – to participate in the annual Meet the Buyer workshop in ICC Belfast. After the workshop, they enjoyed a tour along our stunning Causeway Coast.

As well as visiting Ballintoy Harbour, Carrickfergus Castle and the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge, the group also spent time at the Giant’s Causeway. They learned about the craft of hurl-making at Scullion Hurls near Loughguile, before returning to Belfast for a visit to Titanic Belfast and a city tour.

Niall Gibbons, CEO of Tourism Ireland, said: “Tourism Ireland was delighted to bring 147 top international tourism buyers to Northern Ireland for Meet the Buyer 2019 – including 39 buyers who are here for the first time – which provides such an important opportunity for our local tourism partners. The high attendance of these buyers from around the world is a strong indication that interest in visiting Northern Ireland remains high and that it can, and is, competing with the best destinations in the world.

“Tourism Ireland has an extensive programme of promotions under way this year. We are taking every opportunity to leverage the exciting events happening over the coming months – including The 148th Open at Royal Portrush. And, next week, we will unveil our new campaign around the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones. Our message to the visiting tourism buyers is that there has never been a better time to visit Northern Ireland.”
