It’s official – Lonely Planet’s Top 2018 Destination for Best in Travel is… Northern Ireland’s Causeway Coast & Belfast!
So, what makes the Lonely Planet, travel guide extraordinaire, choose the Causeway Coast and Belfast as 2018’d top destination? What is it that’s drawing people in droves to these up-and-coming landmarks?
Until recently, Belfast was a region divided and haunted by violence – tourism just wasn’t on the cards. Further North, the Causeway Coast was seen simply as the countryside surrounding the famed Giant’s Causeway. But no longer – as the Lonely Planet’s Top 2018 Destination, they are both making a mark of epic proportions – and 2018 is the year for both the Causeway Coast and Belfast to shine!
