Accommodation Welcome Schemes

Tourism NI's Welcome Schemes are designed for accommodation providers who are actively participating in Tourism NI's Quality Assurance Grading Scheme.

The Welcome Schemes help direct visitors to suitable establishments that pay particular attention to their various needs.  

The Welcome Schemes are free to all members of the Quality Assurance Grading Scheme with accommodation providers receiving an assessment for suitability at the time of the initial grading assessment visit.
