THE GOBBINS VISITOR CENTRE & COASTAL PATH
New landmark Visitor Centre for Larne Borough Council, funded by the Special EU Programmes Body. Facilities include accommodation and interpretive exhibition for visitors to this historic coastal path on the Antrim coast.
The aim of the project was to establish Gobbins Cliffs on Islandmagee as a ‘flagship coastal attraction’ acting as an anchor to the proposed Coastal Route designed to attract more visitors to the North of the island of Ireland. It is hoped that this aspiration will be achieved through the restoration of the Gobbins path and provision of a Visitor/Community Centre
The new multi-purpose community building provides accommodation for both a local Community Centre and a Visitor Centre for ‘the Gobbins’ tourist attraction. The Community Centre includes a main hall, meeting room, tea room and stores. The Visitor Centre provides accommodation associated with the Gobbins Cliff path and will consist of a café, gift shop, safety briefing, exhibition/interpretive area and further staff accommodation.
