Report highlights £500m spend on new hotels across NI

By Staff Reporter

Around £500m is being spent on building new hotels in Northern Ireland, says a new report. The new industry report, commissioned by NI Hotels Federation, will be launched as part of Hospitality Exchange 2017.

It says hotel expansion remains “buoyant throughout Northern Ireland as more tourists are visiting the region than ever before”.

Tourism spend in 2016 was estimated to be £850m, with around 40% of that spent in Belfast.

The full report is being finalised and will be launched during the conference, which runs on October 17-18 at the Crowne Plaza hotel in Belfast.  A number of new hotels have opened in the city in the last two years. These include, a refurbished Ten Square close to City Hall and the new 119-bedroom Titanic Hotel.
