Four Irish Attractions Make Lonely Planet List

Four Irish Attractions Make Lonely Planet List

Four Irish attractions have made it on to a list of the world’s top 500 must-see sights of all time, compiled by guidebook publisher Lonely Planet.

To create Lonely Planet’s Ultimate Travelist, Lonely Planet’s team of travel experts and authors on the ground rated the world’s best mega-sights and hidden gems, bringing together a beautiful new book and what they believe to be the 500 best places to visit in the world.

The Irish sites included in the listing include:

  • UNESCO World Heritage Site of Bru na Bóinne, Co Meath (number 224)
  • Cliffs of Moher, Co Clare (number 378)
  • University campus of Trinity College (number 468)
  • Rock of Cashel, Co Tipperary (number 497)

Alex Connolly, Head of Communications, said: “The Irish sights that made it on to the list reflect the range of attractions Ireland has to offer and demonstrate that, for a small country, Ireland is certainly punching above its weight internationally.

“The Lonely Planet is one of the premier sources of information for people all across the world when researching a holiday and lists like these quite literally put Ireland on the map and in the mind’s eye of thousands of potential visitors.”
