Advert Travel Gazette

TRAVEL GAZETTE – Visitor numbers to Northern Ireland hit an all-time high in 2015, as external overnight trips went up by 5%, reaching 2.3 million, due to a large influx of British people, reports the BBC.

However, tourism numbers from the Republic of Ireland continue on a deep downward spiral.

In 2015 they slumped by 18% on the previous year, with the problem now being looked at by a “recovery task force” at Tourism Northern Ireland.
