Year 14 Tourism Trip to The Giant's Causeway and The Salthouse Hotel, Ballycastle

1st Oct 2019

Year 14 Tourism pupils benefited from an informative talk given by staff at the Giant's Causeway who told us about tourism at the World Heritage Site. Customer needs and expectations, facilities, staff responsibilities as well as event organisation were all discussed. We then walked down to the Causeway to experience this UNESCO site for ourselves. Later that afternoon the owners of the Salthouse Hotel in Ballycastle kindly gave us a tour of their sustainable hotel. Carl McGarrity, guided us through beautiful bedrooms, the luxury spa and the stunning bar and restaurant. The hotel is powered by solar and wind energy, does not use single use plastic and has its own water supply from the well on site. It was fascinating to learn about one of the most sustainable and "smartest" hotels in Europe.
