Supporting the Borough's Tourism and Hospitality Businesses

Council have a major role to play in the development of the tourism industry in the borough and in promoting Causeway Coast and Glens to our key target markets.

Our focus is on:

  • Generating more visitors, motivating them to spend longer and visit throughout the year
  • Developing initiatives that will encourage growth in specific sectors and enhance the area’s tourism provision
  • Supporting our tourism operators and encourage new businesses to be more competitive, innovative and experiential
  • Establishing a Destination Management Organisation within the Council area
  • Carrying out research
  • Monitoring tourism activity

Tourism is a key economic activity and a major prosperity driver for the area. Visitors not only contribute to the social and cultural life of the Borough but also bring money into the local economy, £172.3 million (2018). The number of trips to the Causeway Coast and Glens Borough in 2018 was 1,011,485.
