The Northern Ireland Tourism Awards took Enniskillen Castle by storm on Thursday 18th May.  The annual black tie event, regarded as the highlight of the tourism calendar, recognised 37 of the industry’s most inspirational individuals, businesses and organisations and marked tourism’s success over the past year. 

Reflecting innovations and trends within the industry, the 2017 Northern Ireland Tourism Awards spanned 12 different categories and included two special awards.

Commending the awardees, Tourism NI Chairman, Terence Brannigan, said: “The Northern Ireland Tourism Awards celebrate our hard-working tourism industry, and I am delighted that this year they have also been able to showcase the history and heritage around the recently refurbished Enniskillen Castle and the tourism product in the beautiful lakelands of Fermanagh.

“We are fortunate to have such a range of outstanding people, places and organisations who contribute to and invest so much in our industry. These awards provided the opportunity for everybody to see and congratulate their efforts.

“What we have seen tonight in terms of best practice, innovation and creativity emphasises the positive outlook for tourism and indeed its potential to grow the Northern Ireland economy.”
