For many years, film induced tourism has been very common and Northern Ireland has become a first class filming location for film and TV production studios. The locations used in these productions become go to spots for tourists to visit while in Northern Ireland and Ireland.
This creates opportunities for businesses in the area, hospitality and tourism services. A great example of this is the effect Games of Thrones on Northern Ireland tourism. Many businesses have created visitor experiences related to the TV series such as escape rooms, dining experiences and more.
