Causeway Coastal Route Tourism Cluster has received a funding boost of £25,000 through Invest Northern Ireland’s Collaborative Growth Programme.

Led by Marine Hotel Ballycastle, the project will focus on assessing how best to bring together three existing cluster groups, The Gobbins, The Glens of Antrim and Causeway and Binevenagh.

The Causeway Coastal Route Tourism Cluster aims to promote the area further with this latest funding boost. The cluster will scope out how best to encourage a wider tourism market to the area and enhance its popularity as a visitor destination.

The Collaborative Growth Programme is aimed at Small and Medium-Sized Enterprise (SME) led networks, supporting opportunities to scope out innovative collaboration projects with the potential to increase business competitiveness.

The project began in January and will run until November 2020. During this time, Carrickfergus Enterprise will be scoping out the current offerings and identifying possible collaboration opportunities as well as looking at best practice in other destinations in Ireland and UK mainland.
