Tourism is a devolved policy area, meaning that the Northern Ireland Executive has responsibility for the promotion and delivery of the tourism offer within Northern Ireland. Tourism Ireland is responsible for marketing the island of Ireland overseas.

VisitBritain and Tourism Northern Ireland recently signed a partnership agreement where they will work together on specific projects to market Northern Ireland to visitors.

Over the last decade, Northern Ireland has become a 'must-see' tourist destination, and we will continue to encourage visitors to come to experience the many wonderful sights and attractions it has to offer.
