Religious heritage and tourism in Northern Ireland: Opportunities, developments, obstacles

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This paper examines the development of religious/Christian heritage tourism within Northern Ireland. Through the views of representatives across the public and private sector it seeks to establish whether there is a demand for sites and attractions associated with religion and spirituality per se or as part of cultural and heritage tourism, if the Province has enough religious sites and attractions to become established as a religious tourism destination, if the development of religious tourism has the potential to benefit the local economy, and if the different stakeholders are prepared to collaborate to develop and promote Christian heritage tourism in the Province.
