Tourism updates

Update 27th May 2020:

Phase One of the Path to Recovery in Northern Ireland has now started. Here’s what you need to know if you are out and about.

Groups of up to six people who do not share a household can meet up outdoors while adhering to social distancing rules and remain 2m (6ft) apart. Indoor gatherings with family and/or friends in homes or other buildings are not permitted.

Outdoor spaces and some public sports amenities are open. Outdoor activities that do not involve shared contact with hard surfaces, including some water sports are now permitted but be aware that there are no lifeguards on the beaches. While activities such as golf, tennis and fishing are also allowed, you should contact your club or event organiser for details about restrictions. Please be aware that both Council owned golf courses remain closed for now (Ballyreagh and Benone).

There are no restrictions on travel for those who are not self-isolating however, people should not be travelling to second homes or caravans. Holiday caravan parks remain closed.

Car parks at outdoor spaces including forests and country parks have reopened as of May 27th, however, some other facilities such as toilets and playparks may have to remain closed for a period of time. The public is urged not to park on footpaths and verges.

It is important that we all continue to act in a socially and environmentally responsible manner. Plan your journey as some facilities will remain closed, and as always Leave No Trace by disposing of any rubbish carefully.
