Giant’s Causeway & Titanic Belfast make Ultimate Travel List

Lonely Planet has selected eight attractions and experiences on the island of Ireland – including the Giant’s Causeway and Titanic Belfast – to feature in the latest edition of its Ultimate Travel List.

The second edition of Lonely Planet’s Ultimate Travel List – unveiled today – features its top 500 ‘most thrilling, memorable and interesting travel experiences in the world’. The list includes the Giant’s Causeway and Titanic Belfast, as well as the Wild Atlantic Way, the Ring of Kerry, Connemara, Brú na Bóinne, Sliabh Liag, and Trinity College.

At a time when international visitors cannot travel here, Tourism Ireland is aiming to ‘keep the lights on’ for the island of Ireland, to help ensure that we stay ‘front-of-mind’ with prospective visitors for future holidays. The organisation will share this good news around the world with its millions of fans and followers on social media – including Facebook (almost 4.6 million fans worldwide), Instagram (862,000 followers) and Twitter (531,000 followers).

“I am delighted to see eight fantastic attractions and experiences on the island of Ireland feature in the latest edition of Lonely Planet’s Ultimate Travel List – including the Giant’s Causeway and Titanic Belfast,” said Niall Gibbons, CEO of Tourism Ireland. “I would like to thank Lonely Planet for the wonderful support they have shown to the island of Ireland over the years. In what has been a truly terrible year for travel and tourism, this accolade is some good news for overseas tourism to Northern Ireland. It will help ensure that we stay front-of-mind with prospective travellers around the world, until such time as they can visit again.”
