Belfast City Council


Belfast City Council is NI’s largest local authority, made up of 60 Elected Members, representing nine political parties.

We have a civic leadership role to ensure a better quality of life for our citizens by providing services and facilities including planning, parks and leisure, refuse and recycling and community centres and support.

We also work to attract inward investment, build international relations, deliver city centre regeneration, promote culture and the arts, tourism, community and enterprise and business growth. We regulate and license activities relating to environmental health, consumer protection, building and public safety.

We are represented on a variety of bodies and boards, including education and health; and have a consultative role in relation to other government bodies and agencies’ functions on issues such as planning, water, roads and housing.

We recently developed the city’s first Local Development Plan (LDP) to set out a 15 year framework to address Belfast’s future economic and social needs. It’s complemented by The Belfast Agenda 2035, the city’s first Community Plan, which established an agreed set of ambitious economic, social and environmental outcomes between public agencies, businesses and communities.  Our goal is to deliver housing and economic growth alongside measures to address climate change and biodiversity.

We are also leading on the delivery of the transformative £1 billion Belfast Region City Deal programme of investment (£350 million from the UK Government, with a further co-investment of upwards of £150 million from Belfast Region City Deal partners and £350 million match funding from the NI Executive). This investment is strengthening the region’s business offer in growth sectors such as life and health sciences, the digital and creative industries, and advanced manufacturing. It is also supporting next generation digital capabilities, boosting tourism and supporting our region’s regeneration, underpinned by infrastructure developments and investment in skills to connect people to jobs and services.

We are working to deliver more than 20 strategic programmes to reduce emissions and protect the city from the effects of climate change through Belfast’s first Resilience Strategy.

Northern Ireland Bureau


The Northern Ireland Bureau is the diplomatic mission of the Northern Ireland Executive in the United States and Canada. We work to cultivate and strengthen links between various political, economic, educational, and cultural interests in Northern Ireland and North America. We also serve as a resource for individuals and organisations looking to learn and understand more about Northern Ireland, and about its relationship with the United States and Canada.

Our primary role is to promote Northern Ireland in the USA and Canada as:

  • a creative, dynamic, peaceful and flourishing place, with an outward-looking, modern and resilient approach;
  • a great partner for business trade and investment, for tourism, for policy collaboration and for further and higher education, including collaboration on research and development; and
  • a region that is a showcase for the benefits of meaningful engagement and collaboration across the political spectrum, of the kind that helped deliver a peaceful Northern Ireland.

We work closely with a number of organisations, businesses, and institutions throughout the year to showcase the many positive developments and contributions—political, academic, cultural and civic—that are of interest to our North American audience.

Glens of Antrim Distillery


Nestled in the historic Glens of Antrim, on the North Coast of Ireland is where you will find the Glens of Antrim Distillery. The Glens of Antrim is steeped in Irish folklore myths and legends, and it is from here ‘Lir Irish Whiksey’ was born, taking inspiration from the well-known ‘Children of Lir’ story.

The Glens of Antrim Distillery’s aim is to create whiskey with an exceptional taste profile that would appeal to 25 – 40-year-olds of both male & female.  The distillery has three unique blends of whiskey, all replicated in their own unique colour palette falling under the Green, Red and Black Crest range.
