Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2018
The Lonely Planet has named Belfast and the Causeway Coast as the Number One Region in the world to visit in 2018. 
Northern Ireland came ahead of places like Alaska, the Languedoc-Roussillon region in France and the Aeolian islands in Italy. The leading travel media company revealed this accolade on Tuesday in Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2018 – a collection of the world’s hottest trends, destinations and experiences for the coming year. The city shares the accolade with the Causeway Coast “whose timeless beauty and high-grade distractions – golf, whiskey and some of the world’s most famous rocks – are more popular now than ever”.


Superbly situated on the Causeway Coast, with stunning views over Rathlin Island, this traditional holiday cottage in Ireland is the perfect place to unwind and relax. Its large but cosy lounge with a feature fireplace and a wood burning stove is ideal for snuggling up or to read a book.

Tornaroan holiday cottage Ballycastle is only 5 minute drive from the seafront, the beach and town center, which has been voted the best place to live in Northern Ireland for the second time consecutively by the Sunday Times. Close to Glenshesk (Glens of Antrim), Giant’s Causeway, The Dark Hedges, Ballintoy harbour, Bushmills Distillery and many renowned golf courses.


Coastal Beauty
The Causeway Coastal Route between Belfast and Derry-Londonderry could be the drive of your life. 
Its 130 winding miles take in the glorious Glens of Antrim, rugged Rathlin Island (you can get a ferry to this island from Ballycastle), the ancient castles of Carrickfergus and Glenarm – the stunning ruins of Dunluce Castle – six-mile Downhill Beach and the peerless Giant’s Causeway. Don’t miss hair-raising Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, a cliff-to-cliff walkway swaying 100ft above the surf where fulmars and kittiwakes wheel.
