Tourism has had a far reaching, positive impact in the North of Ireland – and indeed the whole of Ireland – post the Good Friday Agreement of 10th April 1998, and is now making a significant contribution to sustainable, social, economic and environmental development.

In the words of Niall Gibbons, CEO of Tourism Ireland, “Tourism brings peace and peace brings tourism.”

On the 25th anniversary of the Good Friday peace accord, Fáilte Feirste Thiar and Féile an Phobail will host a flagship international conference that will explore the growth, success and remaining challenges facing the tourism industry. 

The Good Friday Agreement sought to develop cross-border partnerships, a renewed commitment to human rights and a shared commitment to enhancing the well-being of citizens. 

This ground-breaking event will reflect on these ambitions through the lens of tourism.

We will hear the stories of inspirational people who have reimagined and changed the perception of their destinations by creating extraordinary experiences for visitors and residents by exploring different aspects of the shift from conflict to peace.
