Callers asked to be patient as Gobbins Cliff Path opens for business

Mid and East Antrim Borough Council’s stunning attraction at The Gobbins in Islandmagee looks like it may reclaim its title as Northern Ireland’s premier visitor attraction more quickly than expected.

Just hours after it opened to the public this morning, many hundreds of people have been calling the booking line where staff are busy dealing with queries and bookings.

Speaking early this afternoon, the Gobbin’s Visitor Centre Manager, Alister Bell said: “Staff are working hard to meet the large volume of calls being received. This can be frustrating for callers at times, but we would appeal to our clients to bear with us and be patient. They can be assured that the attraction is well worth the effort and suggest that if the number is engaged they call back later today or tomorrow, when things will be less hectic.”

 Comprising suspension tubular bridges, caves, steps, and tunnels carved through the spectacular rock face here, Mid and East Antrim Borough’s reimagined treasure has brought what was once a thriving 1900’s hotspot into the 21st century. Along the trail, visitors will not only enjoy spectacular views of the natural landscape here but get up close to a diverse range of wildlife and gain privileged access to Northern Ireland’s only mainland colony of Puffins alongside various other bird species.
