Quality grading for tourism businesses

Accommodation welcome schemes


Tourism NI Welcome Schemes are designed for serviced, self-catering and hostel accommodation providers who are members of the Quality Grading Scheme.

The Welcome Schemes help visitors find tourism businesses that cater for their specific hobbies and interests. They recognise the special effort made by businesses to provide services that welcome visitors' particular need - be it walking, cycling, angling or simply holidaying with family. 

The Welcome Schemes currently in operation in Northern Ireland are:

  • Anglers Welcome
  • Cyclists Welcome
  • Dogs Welcome 
  • Families Welcome
  • Golfers Welcome
  • Walkers Welcome
  • Groups Welcome
  • Film Crew Welcome
  • Bikers Welcome
  • Mountain Bikers Welcome

The Welcome Schemes are free to all members of the Tourism NI Quality Grading Scheme. If you wish to apply for one of the Welcome Schemes, your Quality Advisor will verify that the required facilities are available when they visit. Download the full Welcome Scheme criteria (PDF, 2.7MB).
