Invest Northern Ireland and the Northern Ireland Tourist Board have jointly developed new guidance to help people start up and run successful tourism accommodation businesses.

The guidance, published on Invest NI’s website, comes at a time when Northern Ireland tourism is presented with unmatched opportunities to capitalise on the legacy of the world popular Game of Thrones and sporting spectacles such as Giro d’Italia and the Irish Open.

This dedicated resource comprises 16 new guides which cover a wide range of topics, including advice on starting up in the industry, meeting the sector-specific licensing requirements, achieving NITB certification and quality grading. There is also information on booking contracts, guest registers, dealing with guests, health and safety, business regulations, and finding support and opportunities to grow and expand.
