Mayor toasts The Gobbins' worldwide appeal

By Staff Reporter

One of Northern Ireland's most exhilarating tourism attractions is enjoying a bumper summer season, with more than half of its visitors travelling from outside the region.

The Gobbins, near Islandmagee, is a spectacular coastal walk situated on the Causeway Coastal Route, voted the number one region in the world to visit in 2018 by Lonely Planet.

More than 18,000 people have experienced The Gobbins so far this season - with tours often booked out as visitors from as far away as America, China, India, Australia and throughout Europe explore the area. Mid and East Antrim Mayor, Lindsay Millar, recently visited The Gobbins to thank staff for continuing to deliver a world-class tourism experience. She said: "The Gobbins is a jewel in Northern Ireland's tourism crown and I am delighted that it continues to go from strength to strength."
