Past, Present and Future: State of the Art discussion on Tourism in Northern Ireland

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

This keynote provided a review of the developments of tourism in Northern Ireland over time. Three time periods were examined, the years prior to the Troubles, the years of the Troubles and period since the last ceasefire in 1996. The paper focused on the potential that a peaceful environment can offer tourism emerging from a turbulent past; the visitor numbers over the 1994-1998 period are examined to illustrate the rapid change that took place and that it is against a positive climate that opportunities now exist for tourism infrastructure products to be developed. The paper concludes with some observations regarding the signature projects that the National Tourism Organisation (NITB) has just recently launched where major tourism projects will be developed between 2004 and 2007. A cautionary note is stated regarding the relatively short time line for projects listed to be completed where there is not commitment for public money to be invested.
