UK – Giant’s Causeway and Causeway Coast

The Giant’s Causeway is celebrating one million visitors since the start of the year, the only visitor attraction in Northern Ireland to reach such a milestone.

The world famous attraction has seen visitor numbers increase by a third since 2013.

International guests now represent over 70% of visitors and this growth can be attributed to our close partnership with tourist bodies such as Tourism Ireland and Tourism Northern Ireland combined with an excellent visitor experience.

– HEATHER MCLACHLAN, DIRECTOR OF THE NATIONAL TRUST NORTHERN IRELAND
The Giant’s Causeway is the first UNESCO World Heritage site in Northern Ireland and has also recently been named as the Number One Region in the World to visit in 2018 by the Lonely Planet.
Aubrey Irwin, Tourism Ireland, said: “Overseas visitors regularly tell us that their holiday in Northern Ireland has surpassed their expectations.”
