Lusty Beg Island was rewarded for their 50-year contribution to the local tourism industry at the recent NI Travel and Tourism Awards.
More than 400 guests and VIPs throughout Northern Ireland gathered at the Slieve Donard Resort and Spa in Newcastle, Co Down on Friday October 19 to celebrate the Travel and Tourism Industry and it was Lusty Beg Island that walked away with the prestigious Northern Ireland Tourism Industry Award 2018.
Nina Kelly-Kleine, Head of Sales and Marketing at Lusty Beg Island said: “We are thrilled to receive this wonderful recognition at the Northern Ireland Travel and Tourism Awards.
Lusty Beg is Northern Ireland’s only island resort and is an utterly charming one at that. It is a phenomenal place to relax and unwind and we pride ourselves in giving visitors an unforgettable experience when they stay with us. Our team works hard to ensure that we always deliver the highest caliber of service in everything that we do, from corporate hospitality and team building activities to our stunning Spa breaks and weddings.
I would like to thank the Lusty Beg team for their dedication over the many years as it is by their efforts that we have picked up this prestigious accolade.”
Northern Ireland Travel News has been organising the awards for the past 27 years and this year’s ceremony was hosted by Saoirse Jackson, Louisa Harland and Dylan Llewllyn from the hit TV series The Derry Girls.

The island resort is a worthy winner as it provides a unique offering to visitors around NI and from further afield.”
