We were up against some very tough competitors

In May we were invited to attend the NI Tourism Awards at Queen's University were we were nominated for 'Best Marketing Mix' due to our marketing and promotion of our Festival of Light last year.

The competition was tough but we are thrilled to announce that we were the winners in this category and were awarded with a lovely award to bring back to Mount Stewart.
