Giant's Causeway Attracts One Million Visitors

Co. Antrim's Giant's Causeway has become Northern Ireland's first tourist attraction to play host to one million visitors.

The number of people visiting the site has risen by a third since 2013, with 70% of its visitors coming from overseas, as reported by the Irish Independent,

Commenting on the Causeway's accomplishment, head of Northern Ireland at Tourism Ireland Aubrey Irwin said it's a "testament to the hard work of the National Trust and Giant's Causeway staff. Overseas visitors regularly tell us that their holiday in Northern Ireland has surpassed their expectations and a visit to Giant's Causeway is certainly a 'must see' now on everyone's itinerary."
